Hello and thank you for using Just Answer

I'm Paul and I will help you with your Question


does it run rough when it cuts off?


or does it run smooth and just turn off like the key was shut off?


does it happen warm or cold? does it restart right away? or do you need to wait


please give as much detail as possible

It runs smooth, then will shut off likethe key was shut off. It restarts right away

if it runs smooth and just stalls at times I would replace the Mass Air Flow sensor


it is a very common cause for stalling and will restart right away


other common issues that cause stalling generally cause the engine to run rough and be hard to restart


replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor


Also clean the throttle plate


let me know if you need more help
