Hello, my name is***** this can be caused by a number of things the most common is the crank position sensor. When it begins to fail it will cut out every now and then and kill the engine. Typically when this occurs it will read right again once it cooler. I would monitor the reading of the sensor while driving the vehicle to see if it is reading when the problem is occurring. I have also seen a failure in the fuel pump or fuel pump circuit cause this. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more help.
