Check your wiring connections, how much fuel do you have in it? You could have air in your line but it sounds a little further than that. So you're saying it idles fine but doesnt run good when driving and that it shuts off?

How hot does it get and how long does it take? Check your oil level too, make sure it is not too low or too high.

Well here's one scenario. If you were running off the tank with 1/4 in it then you could have sucked some air in the line. To fix this i've had to fill the tank up and run the truck a little then just rev it up real good and force the fuel in there to get rid of the air pocket.

If your oil is good then I would make sure the quality of the oil is good too.

I'm one of those I gotta see it and hear it to really get a feel for what it's doing. I'm sure somebody else will chime in and give the answer you're looking for.
