If it shuts off due to a knock sensor it would leave a trouble code, have the codes scanned - you can buy/rent or borrow an OBD scanner. If you can manage to get it up to a parts store most will scan it for free. Once you have any stored codes read you'll have a much better idea what's happening with the car.
