Do you have a check engine light?

Check the fuel pressure if its within specs-fuel pump could be failing-start here

As a quick test add fuel when it stalls out. If it runs when spraying throttle cleaner its a fuel problem. If it still will not start its spark. Let me know what you end up with.

You will need a fuel pressure gauge. There will be a fitting on the fuel rail that you can tap in to.
