I had similar symptoms but in addition the car's accelorator seem to have dead spots in it where it would not accelerate smoothly. It turned out to be a faulty fuel pressure regulator which was leaking fuel directly into the intake and intake vales mixing with the oil. After that was replaced and my fuel ridden oil was replaced - it ran fine after that.

I can usually turn them on for about 15 minutes and then they kick off and won't turn on again. And my trac on/off button doesn't do anything to help, or anything at all really.
Replaced fuel regulator, my mechanic said it was leaking, got car back. ran fine for a couple days, drove it a couple more days and now car is randomly dying again.. Any advice would be apprecia...
When I'm driving the car idle high then it gets sluggish and take a while to accelerate then it backfires and shut off then it starts back up and continues to do that every day
