Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are quite a few things that can cause the engine to die. If it's dying abruptly then you're most likely losing spark. Lost spark could be caused by the coil, cam or crank sensor, the ASD relay, powertrain control module and wiring.
The most likely cause for abrupt dying is a failing crank sensor, assuming the fuel gauge and voltmeter don't drop when the engine dies.
The firs step in diagnosing the problem is to see if any fault codes are setting. Do you know if any codes are setting?
