Engine Performance problem
1997 Oldsmobile Silhouette 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

The problem started while I was driving. The car started fine but then with no warning the car stalled. I pulled it over and it restarted fine. I continued to drive home then it stalled again, once again restarting fine seconds later. Brought it home and tested the battery which was reading low. So we went out and changed the battery. But when I went to go and warm up the car this afternoon it did it again. And the alternator tested fine. The van starts up fine but then dies after a few minutes. What could be causing it to do this?

Check the fuel pressure and comeback with the readings we start here.

Just wanted to let you know that the reason my car wasn't starting was because I had a bad fuse in the fuse block. It was a hack job fix of someone trying to fix the van before I purchased it.
