I have a 97 also and it is doing the same thing.No check engine light,but it shuts off and then it starts again.I replaced the coil,had it in the shop couldnt find the trouble.Maybe some will answer with a cure.

Check the wires coming from the engine control unit(passenger side)the wires can rub against the a/c lines and cause a short and make the computer flip out.Good Luck!!
