Does this problem only occur when it's cold outside. If it happens shortly after starting, say within the first 5 mintes of running it could be the fuel pump. When it happens, does it start right back up? If it doesn't try carefully hitting the gas tank with a mallet hard enough to try to get the fuel pump to work, if that's it. If the car starts now it seems like the fuel pump to me. If it happens when you've been driving for a while it may be the throttle position sensor.
