Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that could be going on. You could be losing spark due to a number of issues, you could be losing fuel pressure due to a pump related issue, the engine controller itself may be going on.

The first step in diagnosing the problem was to use a code reader or scan tool to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?
