Just shuts off

When it stalls the firs thing I would do I remove the top fuel filter housing and make sure it is still full of fuel. If that is ok the issue is most likely going to be an issue with the IPR valve on the vehicle. They are known to fail when the engine gets hot and work again once the engine cools back down.
