Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can cause the engine to die and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. You could be losing spark, fuel, it could be a fuel quality concern or an exhaust restriction.

What year, make and model is the vehicle and what engine do you have?
