4.0 spits and spudders then dies.

ok i have 4.0 out of an explorer and my question is my truck will start then spit and sputter then slowly die. now the frist start will last a min or so but the more i try the faster it dies. i just installed a new fuel pump in may. not sure where to start. here are all the codes that poped up:
P0122-low voltage on TPS
P1443- something about a purge thing?
P0136- O2
P0141-O2 bank 1
P0171-to lean bank 1
P0174-to lean bank 2
P0756- shift something?

well i guess im on my own. the problem only occurs when its at running temp. when its cold everything runs like a champ then i get into town and it starts to acting up. yesterday i replaced spark plugs and plug wires thought that would have been it but im lost. i had a GMC that would do this and it was the MAF because it got wet. now i live in az and its been raining a lot here and it super humid. im running the stock intake setup but i still could have sucked up water. could this be the problem?i start school in 2 weeks i need my truck up and running.

well found out the issue. it was the the fuel filter was clogged and causing the fuel pump to burn up

good catch,

everybody should know now that almost ZERO gas stations utilize inline fuel filters in their pumps
