Just guessing but I would have ignition module tested or replaced.This is farely easy to do,the module is located under coil packs.If that test good then the electric fuel pump is the next thing to look at.Both of these parts show signs of failure bye shuting down when car reaches normal temp and then allows car to start when it cools a little.
