ignition module underneath the coil pack gets hot and shuts down those model of car are notorius for that I just went through this personally. The fuel pump was going out. FIRST: Double-check your MAF sensor: Remove the air filter housing and remove the MAF sensor. Carefully spray brake parts cleaner through the side hole where the little wire is. Sometimes it gets hot and "burns" dirt to it. It helped mine a little, but not completely. I had the fuel filter and pump changed to fix the problem. ~ $500 - $600 at a shop using AC Delco parts. Good luck!
