if it is dying while running, it would be a good idea to test the alternator.

I agree with the alternator, just because the car systems run off of the alternator. Also consider have the fuel system checked, fuel pump, fuel filter, line and fittings. Make sure your are getting full fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel.
