2004 X died during drive like it ran out of gas.

Greetings.
So I was driving 150 miles to Boise airport in the middle of nowhere with 3/4 tank of gas when suddenly it felt like I was running out of gas and starting losing power.
Pulled over turned engine off, waited a minute then restarted. Was only able to go about 20 fee before having to pull over again due to lack of power.
After that just cranks like it is out of gas.
Had him towed to a storage garage and will have to deal with upon unknown return when work in FL is done.
Have already called several mechanics to get some price info on diagnostics.
Anybody ever have this issue?
Thanks
Retro

Did you get a check engine light? Could be a fuel filter, could be the distributor. They are known failure points as well.

No check engine light came on. I thought about the fuel filter but there were no issues before the stall out. Maybe fuel pump?

Sorry for delays in response. Working many hours doing hurricane inspections for damaged homes in FL.
No bucking or misfiring just the feel like running out of gas.
At the time of the issue I did not check for sound from fuel pump due to being on a busy road. The X was towed directly to a storage unit in Boise and I jumped into a Uber for airport right after.
Testing will be done once back. After seeing the temps up there I am happy to be in FL as long as possible, plus making money!

Also check your mass air flow sensor and air intake hose for cracks. If it is sucking air or bad mas sensor it will cause surging and stumbling also

Had the same thing happen on our 02. Freeway speed, then it shiat the bed. Sat for a few minutes, started, shiat the bed again. Was the fuel sending unit. Replaced it, all good.
