Hi Stang Hater,
What are you using to pull codes? If you have a scanner and your ECM will not link to it it's likely the ECM is done.
The next thing to determine is whether it is fuel, or fire that stalls the engine. When it quits pull the coil/plug wire and check for fire. If you don't have the tool to check this, stick a screw driver in the coil/plug wire and hold the metal part about 1/2 inch away from something metal on the engine. Have someone crank it over.
If you get spark then check the fuel pressure. there is a schrader valve like on an AC line, on your fuel rail, I think your car will have pressure in the 40's but check the book.
Your cat converter could also be suspect.
This could get long, if there is no fire check the coil then the module, if it's the fuel pressure, check; 12v out of fuel pump relay (it cycles off after a few seconds, turn key off, and back on to recycle pump). If 12v is there listen at tank for fuel pump buzz, if it buzzes check fuel filter.
If all this fails pour gas on sparingly, strike match, and call insurance co. Not really, post more info.
