97 taurus G starts then dies

I hope someone can help! My son's taurus would not start the other morning.
His battery was dead and about 5 years old, replaced it. Turned over nice but no start. Hooked up gage and checked for fuel pressure was about 20 psi. So I checked fuel pump relay in the CCRM by jumping out pins 5 and 11 in the connector. pressure went up to 40. So i replaced the CCRM with an after market one. Car started ran for about 1 minute and died. Now if I let sit for a few minutes it will do the same start and shut down. What should I look at next?

Hooked up gauge and rechecked fuel pressure, key on got about 33- 35 psi.
Started engine ran for a few minutes pressure started to drop to around 20 and engine died. Removed vacuum hose on pressure regulator and started engine. Seem to run just fine, let run a few minutes and checked gauge read 33 psi. Replace pressure regulator, now runs fine.
