Ford 3.8 intermittent start

My 85 ltd 3.8L V6 keeps dying on me. While I was driving, everything went dead and the car would not restart. cranked fine, but wouldn’t start. I found a loose wire on the external fuel pump repalced it, and the car ran fine. Drove to the store, it started fine again then died when I got close to home. Fuel is getting to the engine. It starts after a while and runs fine, but then dies and won’t restart again.

Last serviced?

Fuel filter replaced?

Does this engine have a carburetor or is it fuel injected?
