What the problem
Expert:  cardoctor74 replied 9 months ago.

Ok have when was te last tune up done on the vehicle? And has te mass air flow sensor been checked or cleaned?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It was tune up about 3 months ago. No rhe mass flow sense haven't been change I don't think. Will that cause it to cut off .
Expert:  cardoctor74 replied 9 months ago.

It can be the electricla portion of the ignition switch starting to fail as this does happen as well it heats up then stalls the vehicle and when it cools down it will start again.Seems alotlike your isseu so Im leaning towards that.But the mass air flow sensor givesthe signal to the computer for the correct air/fuel mixture and if this sorts out will cause the stall as well . I would clean the mass air flow sensro as well as the throttle body this done with the battery disconnected and once he battery is reconnected if there is still an issue I would focus on the electrical portion of the igntion switch .As these are the most two common faults .Please rate excelletn service so I can get credit for my help thanks.Bonuses greatly appreciated . Im here if you ever need any fuurther assistance.
