    Could be a fuel pump; Several years ago had one doing the same thing. Tested the ignition system, computer system, no problems, still died while driving. Finally attached a fuel pressure gauge and took it for a ride. Sure enough the pressure would drop and the engine would die. Pull over and it would start right up with good fuel pressure. Drive a little more and pressure drops again. Changed the pump & filter, no more problems.
