Could be a lot of things. Have you checked fuel psi. Will it start right up after it cuts out?

Check fuel psi. You will need to attach a pressure gauge and monitor it when driving

Ther are lots of sensors that could do that. We need to start with the basic test first.

That's the best way. Is the check engine light on and are there codes in the computer. To check this you will need some test equipment.
