Shutting off while driving

I have an 88 4 runner 22re 5spd. I recently replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, master and slave cylinder, distributor, ignition control module, ignitor coil.

Truck started up with a misfire....when I took it out to test drive to see how the trans was and how it was shifting the truck shut off coming up to a red light. Went to turn the ignition the truck would crank but wouldn’t turn over unless I gave it a little gas....I suspect maybe because it’s been sitting for awhile that the fuel might be bad so I added like a fuel additive until I can get fresh fuel for it. On the other hand I hear that it maybe a bad fuel pump. I was just curious on what some of your guys’ thoughts were?

Is the Check Engine light on? If so, did you pull the codes? If you did, what were the exact numbers you pulled?

You could measure the fuel pump motor with a multimeter and post up the resistance value you git. Have you checked or replaced the fuel filter since it's been sitting fer some time? Did you perform a fuel pressure test? It would probably give you a better indication if the fuel pump was working correctly.

How good are the rest of the ignition components like the spark plugs, wires, rotor and cap?

Did you inspect the air filter fer any restrictions? How good is the VAFM? Is it sticking?

Have you inspected the cold start injector or the fuel injectors?
