Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that will cause the engine to die. You could be losing spark or fuel, fuel would be more likely with these symptoms. If you're losing fuel it would most likely be a bad pump but it could be a loss of power or ground to it.

What year and model is the vehicle?
