how long does it run before it cuts out? If it runs for about 5 or 10 minutes and won't start again until it is cold it could be the crankshaft position sensor. If it runs for a few minutes, sounds more like a ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor.

Contact a mechanic, this problem could be originating from a variety of problems with the car.

If your car has a automatic transmission, put car in neutral get a rolling start then switch to Drive. If car stays running your problem could be a solinoid switch in transmission. The trans. is stuck in second or third gear which would cause your car to stall out.

i have had that problem, and it sounds like the fuel filter is clogged, you will need to replace the fuel filter.

If your car doesnt start, it could be the battery. But if the car starts and you unplug the negative cable and the car turns off, its the alternator.
