Is the check engine light on ?

no, it dont even come on when jumop the a and b terminals for trouble codes


Try cleaning the throttle body if really dirty will cause the throttle not to close all the way sucking in to much air causing vehicle to start then shut off.


Also check and replace air filter if necessary.
