I too would guess fuel pump or fuel filter (if it has one)....but remember that the thing requires: Fuel, Spark, and Air to run. Start with simple things to narrow it down.

I'd also look at the crank positioning sensor

Any recent work done to it? Is the engine throwing any codes? Engine lights? How many miles?

According to the search on this sight, that code is a camshaft positioning sensor.

Sounds like a CPS problem. I had a Mopar that did the same thing. Change the CPS.
