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

The average gas mileage for a 1998 Chevy Cavalier depends upon if you are driving in the city or on the highway. In city driving, it gets 20 mpg, and on the highway it gets between 27 and 31 mpg.

The most likely culprit is the catalytic converter. When it no longer functions correctly or becomes clogged it will cause the car to stall. The car typically runs fine when coold but begins acting up after everything gets to temperature.
