Default 98 Saturn SL won't stay running

I have a 98 Saturn with 133k fuel gauge was acting erratic for a while, finally the car stalled and was like it ran out of gas. Mechanic said it needed a fuel pump. So I replaced it and fuel filter the car ran good for 166 miles and the car stalled again. It will start and run for about 15 seconds then its like it running out of gas. Could this be a ground issue. I don't know what else it could be. Please help!!

You'll probably get much better and/or more response if you post in the appropriate forum for the model of the car.

My first guess would be that the fuel is still the issue, but a fuel pressure tester could confirm or deny that. You probably have recourse against the shop and/or fuel pump manufacturer if they put in a bad pump. It might get trickier if the fuel pump was never the problem.
