I have a 97 Catera I have change the fuel pump and the fuel filter but the car will still turn off on me while Im driving. It takes a few hours of driving it before it starts to happen and once it does I have to wait 20-30 mins and it will start again??????

please give me some input!

Does it run rough at all or does it just shut off like you turned the key?
