Default intermittent no start

2004 xlt 4.0 sohc, over the last several months on 4 different occasions vehicle was running great, shut down for several minutes when attempt to restart engine runs for just a couple of seconds then shuts down and will not restart. waited about an hour then vehicle starts as though it was out of fuel -sputters for a second then runs fine- then vehicle runs for several weeks fine then out of the blue problem arises again. let sit for a while and then it runs fine then..... checked fuel pump relay-ok- checked power to fuel pump-ok- checked all fuses, and fuse boxes-ok- each time this shutdown has occured the time between it will restart gets longer, as I am writing this it has been 2 days since engine would start. several techs have suggested that the problem is the fuel pump but am confused by this as how can the fuel pump run not run then run then not run and so on. this is an expensive part to swap out to find out that is not the problem.helllllllllllp!!!!!!!

I don't know if this would help but when did you change the fuel filter last?
