You are losing fuel or spark. You need to check for both when it happens. If it's spark, it might be an ignition module, or an ignition coil. It seems heat related. It can also be a fuel pump. However,... I would be leaning more toward the ignition.


hot coil breakdown, heat it with a heat gun and see if it kills it, then you know hot coil breakdown
