Sounds like the ignition control module is overheating than when it cools down will start.

Also maybe the sock filter in the gas tank with the pump could be getting clogged.

The only way to be for sure is when the vehicle shuts off do the fuel pressure test right then it will at least confirm or eliminate if that is the problem.
