well it stops and after letting it sit for awhile it will start up and run again. and sometimes it starts up after switch relays around. is there a fuel safety switch and where may it be,

Tell your mechanic just what you posted here and he will fix it right up. Let the mech. keep it a couple days so he can check for no spark when it stalls. My guess is crank sensor, by the time u switch these relays around ect. it cools enough to restart! Again my guess.

Replacement of the crankshaft sensor usually resolves this problem!
