When the engine dies out, does it spudder? If it does you might want to check the fuel pump or FP fuse. Just a thought.

I was having the same problem and I searched and searched for answers and it always came down to the ckp sensor, what I gathered was that this sensor should actually only cause a non starting condition, and my cat would always start, so this left me a little doubtful that the cause would be the "crankshaft position sensor" so I decided to go ahead and change it, now I am glad I did ...no more tears of agony.

when you replace it, route the wires away from the oil cooler, the original is actually pinched by the tubing of the oil cooler. bad setup.
