Next time you stall check on test port on the fuel rail ito see f you have some fuel pressure. If not, then the fuel pump might be kicking off from overheating. Time for a new fuel pump.

i had a van do that also in cool but not cold weather always started again after about twenty minutes and yes , i was sceptical,, but it was the fuel pump

Have them check the torque converter in the trainny.
