It sounds like an electrical issue caused by heat. I'd start with the main relay under the hood.


If it run,s and then shut,s down as you say,check the fuel pressure,may be fuel pump is getting hot and bad.

Electrical issue are so hard to diagnose. especially on the internet. You will need someone to look at it with you.


First try replacing your EGR valve.
