Sounds like it could be the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid. Some are on the side of the transmission and others are inside of the transmission.

Does it feel like it wants to lurch forward as it dies?? if so i agree with the torque converter idea.

I have the same problem but mine dies as soon as i rev mine goes to 500 rpms then goes back to 750 then once i put in gear it dies halfway diwn the street.
