Could be a fuel pump, or a bad connection at the ignition switch. There are many possibilities here. Cranks sensor could cause this too. Hands-on inspection is needed. The tech will keep a scanner hooked up while driving the car to see what they can see when it acts up. If you don't normally work on cars then use this link to find a good shop near you.
