Some good advise about checking the fuel pump - see

A clogged exhaust system - go to https://www.yourmechanic.com/questio...en-dies-by-tom and see -

Or perhaps a vacuum issue

Clean your throttle body and MAF sensor - the MAF sensor should throw a code

Clean your battery terminals

Let us know how it goes...

Also replace the air filter, if dirty. And crack open the gas cap to see if it's a venting issue, but I'd suspect it would run longer than that.
