well its not from your work i can tell you. when the last time you change the fuel filter ? because it sounds like your vapor locking or its starving for fuel when it shuts down. go out turn the key on open the hood take a small scew driver or nail pens are best unscrew your cap on your fuel line pressure port check and press the valve down if it doesn't spray you and the hood you got a restricted fuel filter.now if your check engine light is on now..might have a failed Mass Air Flow sensor if it dies again open the hood unplug MAF sensor located on air intake tube hose or near air filter leave unplug and restart it..if bad your car will start instantly leave it unplug you will run rich but you just solved your mystery go buy replace clear codes.if you don't the computer will still see a bad part car even tho its new..car comps not plug and play very behind compare to smart phones
