Depending on the make of the vehicle, it could be any number of things. It could be a plugged fuel filter, air filter, vacuum leak, ignition problems, etc.

A 350 engine will idle good but cut out and run rough while driving if there is a vacuum leak. This causes too much air to enter the engine under load.

When it dies, is it a sudden stall, or does it run rough, and then die? If its sudden, it is most likely a electrical problem, but if it runs rough, or dies when accelerating, it might be mechanical. Such as the fuel lines, carb, etc.
