CAR STALL WHILE DRIVING

2001 Mitsubishi Outlander • 162 miles

I started the car and off I go, 5 minutes later while accelerating on the 4th gear, the car gradually losses power and stalled. Previously, it happen like once a month but for the past three days it happen once a day. Before this I can start the car again after waiting about 5-10 mins. However last night the car would start but immediately dies off and stayed like that for one hour. I was only able to get the car running this morning. I would be really greatful if I can get help from here. Cheers!

Is the Malfunction Indicator Light showing?

When engine could not be started, you need to test and find out what is missing to understand what could be wrong. such problems could be due to a faulty fuel pump or it controlling circuit like a bad relay.
