You should have a small module on the firewall, little silver coloured box with wires plugged in to it. When this box heats up it will shut the engine off, then it will restart moments later. That's of course if the problem is electronic. Need a little more information. If its not electronic, then check for fuel problems. Start with the pump, its in the tank.
