Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are a handful of things that could be causing the engine to die. It may be losing spark due to a crank sensor or coil issue, it could be an exhaust restriction, low fuel pressure or fuel contamination.
The first step in diagnosing the problem is to check for fault codes. Do you know if any codes are setting?

how do i see default codes?
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.
You can use a scan tool, code reader, or cycle the key three times from off to on and watch the odometer.

Did the problem start after any repairs were done?
Does it actually run for two seconds rather than ten?
