I would suspect that the coil fails when it heats up. Try some starting fluid next time it dies. If it fires, it's getting spark. No fire, no spark - replace the coil.

My grand cherokee did this. After 3 mechanics, it ended up being the crank shaft sensor. No problems since.

I had this issue. The crank Shaft Position Sensor was problem. Easy and inexpensive fix.

hello, the fix for this problem is in the bottom of your electronic ignition distributor, there is a ceramic module in the bottom under the roater plate, over time this module will crack internally and separate when the distributor gets hot, when it cools off the module will make contact again and the car will start and run until the module gets hot again. I just replaced my distributor with another one off of ebay for $35.00, Problem solved.
