More info would be good...
Lots of us try to save some money by skipping the monitoring, believe me I know it's hard to spend a buck sometimes. However, we could be a lot more help if we knew more. You could Get either a scangauge 2 or a dashboss for about 160.00. That will tell you enough down the road to help you Potentially prevent thousands in repairs. It could also help us tell you if you likely have a battery, oil pump, IPR, fuel pressure or FICM problem without you having even crack open the hood.
To monitor fuel pressure I'm not sure the scangauge will help you, but you can install a fuel pressure sender for the Dashboss.
I have been able to pinpoint three problems in the three months I have had the Dashboss. One of which had me stranded much like you are.
My rant in a nutshell - get a monitoring system!
In the meantime check your FICM like poorboy said, its not hard (but it's harder than looking at the screen on a monitor...)
Good luck, I hope we can help
