Yes they do go weird... I had the same problem except mine would only go a minutbor two then die...I did all the tests and the fuel pump was losin signal yet everything was checking fine.... Still a mystery... So we took out the relay and just jumped the por with a wire an yes my fuel pump is running at 35 psi or whatever start pressure is but it works and it drives an wheels and we are still stumped on the issue...


Give it a shot pull the fuel pump relay an jump the plug so it's at start pressure as soon as ignition hits...


Whatever was sending the signal to kick te fuel pump down to running psi just stopped sending the signal.... But everything in and around it related to that tests good


Good luck
