Check fuel pump, fuel shut off switch, or fuel injectors.

Sounds like a thermal breakdown of an ignition component. Have you pulled the codes? That might help send you in the right direction instead of just replacing parts.

when was the last time you replaced your spark plugs and spark plug wires? whats your oil level at? coolant level? whats the temperature gauge read when you have this issue? check your battery connections and how old is the battery
