Having the same issue, full tank of gas standard transmission, and no check engine light. Will die going down the road and also while sitting idle. Almost like it runs out of gas, replaced fuel filter then the pump still no luck. Having it put on the dagnostic computer on monday,

Maybe bad coil spark needs to be blue/white

Yea I got that (same thing brother said) and I would be inclined to go with that if the "periods" were somewhat consistant. But it takes fits of sorts where it will die 5 times in a mile then decide to run right for the next 50. Should I even have it hooked up on the diagnostic computer at the dealership on monday like its scheduled (no check engine light)
