durango runs 10-15 min then dies

guy near me is selling a 99 rango 4x4 V8 for $850, says it will run for 10-15 mins then die and he doesn't know what the issue is. Anyone know off top of their head what the issue could be before I go look at it?

Depends how it dies. If oil pressure is getting lower and lower until it dies, walk away.

If the temp gauge goes up and up until it dies, walk away.

If it goes for a while then just sputters and dies, replace the fuel pump and you've got a good deal.

Yeah I was thinking fuel issue as a possibility. I have a fuel pressure gauge, but i'm not gonna go look at it and solve the guys problem, then have him jack the price up on me.
