If it die's when the engine reaches normal temps after running, then restarts when it cools down I would start at the Camshaft sensor.


When it dies, squirt a shot of starting fluid into the intake. If it fires, you have spark. I would suspect a problem with the coils but don't go changing parts until you narrow it down. Get the codes read at the parts store.
