It might be the fuel injectors... does it choke like you're out of gas or does it just die? Could also possibly an issue with fuel pump and/or fuel filter. When is the last time you've had a tune-up??

Thank you so much for your response. I was thinking same thing & its been awhile so will have what u suggested looked at have a tune up & get an oil change


Glad I could help :) Hope a tune up and oil change do the trick! Good Luck!
