This is a common symptom of a failing fuel pump A quick test is to see if it runs when spraying starting fluid into throttle body during problem if so this proves problem is fuel related. Fuel pump replacement would be around $400 to have done at a shop depending on where you go. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
