My '87 5KCSTQ did this very thing last month, with the exception of
the anti-lock light coming on. This condition lasted two days. Then
at 6 AM one morning when it was -10 degrees F, I was going down the
Maine turnpike at 80mph when the engine just stopped. Very
disconcerting. Bad fuel pump.
I should have paid attention to the warning I was given for two days
before it died. During the two days previous the engine would
sputter and then die. I would have to wait about 10-15 minutes then
it would start again. The fuel pump was also a bit louder than
usual in the morning on cold start-up.
