A bit confused on the description, particularly the 'drive for long time it shuts off but starts back up'. Does the key rotate, where are you starting at under the hood, the starter? After you drive for long periods of time, are you saying it stalls, but starts right back up? Is there a check engine light, or any type of fault warnings?
