Clean the IAC (idle control valve). It is located on the throttle body.

Could be lots of things. You may be able to swap the fuel pump relay and the a/c relay as a test of the relay. Sometimes the relay will get warm and stop functioning. The best thing to do would be check it for proper fuel pressure when it stops running. You are likely losing either fuel or spark when it quits.

One thing I forgot to throw in my question was it only does it when the car is warm

Never mind that meassage

No need to guess. Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.
