Engine dies in traffic after a long drive.

(2004 Chevrolet Tracker)
in Pearl City, HI on May 30, 2010
I dont know whats wrong with my car because after a long drive then eventually stuck in traffic the engine dies. After it dies i have to wait until it cools down about 15 mins then it works again. And the thing is it doesnt overheat! I brought my car to midas and lex brodies but they could not find the problem. I have replaced the fuel pump, and spark plugs but nothings changed, it still dies out in traffic. So what is causing the engine to die?
