1. On a warm day with A/C running, upon slowing to a stop, engine falters, dies, and will not restart.  Will crank over, but sputters like it is not getting gas.
2.  On a warm day with A/C running, I stop to do a quick errand.  Car not not re-start, acts like it is out of gas.

could be a clogged fuel filter- have you ever run it out of gas, or do you run it really low on a regular basis?

Never, but thank you.

    Always happens after 3rd or 4th stop when running errands. No crank, no click, no nothing. Wait awhile then starts and runs perfectly. 2 auto shops tell me they can't find anything wrong.
