It's possible the crankshaft position sensor is bad and when your running it it will heat up and shut down on you . the sensor is located on the back side of the block. it will cost about 20 dollars to replace it but becarefull pulling the old one out. mine did the same thing run a bit get hot shut down and kept doing it till i replaced the cps, so try that first. you can pick one up at autozone
