I've got the same problem on my truck Bo, been told it could be your could or fuel system

I had the same problem a couple years ago. I changed the throttle position sensor, coil, plugs and wire, rotor, pick up coil....turned out to be the ECM (computer) It started right up but when it warmed up or after driving it for about 15-20 minutes it would die. If you let it cool for about 5-10 minutes, it started back up and took off again Next time it fails to start, tap on the ECM box...it will probably start right up
