You will need to find out if you are losing fuel pressure or losing spark. Do you know if it is setting a check engine light?

Same with mine< was told by dealer egr valve, fuel pump and also top manifold plennum (sp?) Leak to the tune of $1800. Did egr for $475, same prob again after 3 days. Fuel pressure is low so next is the pump, tryin to find reasonable cost.
