My 2001 Hyundai Accent just shuts off while I'm driving. After about 5 minutes it will start again. What could be causing this?Car drives fine for a while, then the engine hesitates and about a minute later it just shuts off.

I would have the fuel pressure checked. It sounds like the fuel pump fails when the car gets hot. Have a shop verify and give you a bid.
