    Do you have any Check Engine or Service Engine Soon Lights coming on? If so, they could really help. It sounds like you may have a temp sensor issue that heats up and for some reason, shuts off the vehicle.

    I agree with dandd answer. "AUTO ZONE', at least in my area, will do an electronic engine check FREE of charge and will also help you with diagnostics.
