Hey Jim I would start by changing the fuel filter. If that didn't help check out the fuel pump. Make sure it runs when you turn the ignition on for 2 seconds when it won't start . GoodluckJoe

If it is a random thing, and it just dies when you are driving, or idling, and there does not seem to be any 1 thing causing it, then it is the computer. I had to replace mine, after finally getting the shop to just leave my car running until it died. I did this because I had had them look at the car a few times trying to figure out the problem. They left it going for 6 hours before it finally died, but, it did die, and they were able to run diagnostics at that time.
