Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are dozens of things that can cause the engine to die and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. Data may need to be monitored at the time the problem is happening.

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