I never approve of throwing parts at a problem in hopes one will fix it, but since I don't have access to information for your model, the two best suspects are the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor. It's the signals from both of them that tells the Engine Computer the engine is rotating, (cranking or running), and it's time to turn on the automatic shutdown, (ASD) relay. On some other models that might be called the ignition relay, fuel injection relay, ECM relay, or something like that.
Both of those sensors commonly fail on any car brand by becoming heat-sensitive. Typically they cause stalling at first when the engine is warmed up, or a failure to restart shortly after stopping a hot engine, then they work again after they cool down for an hour. Eventually they fail completely.
You may need to get these from a salvage yard, or buy one new one to try, then try the other one. The typical symptoms are no spark, no injector pulses, and the fuel pump doesn't run during cranking. Be aware that on some engines these sensors have a thick paper spacer on the end to set the critical air gap. Some have a thin plastic rib molded onto the end. Some don't require any adjustments.
