I'd check out the EGR valve first. I had an olds do that SAME exact thing. No warning, no lights just a dead car after highway driving for about 5-10 minutes. I cleaned it up and it happened still but not near as often. I spent over 300 bucks on a new one (as the model of engine was only ran 2 years and those were pretty hard to find parts for). Problem was solved.

If it's not that, time to look into fuel filters, then possibly overheating issues. Maybe it's time for a anti-freeze flushing?

stop the car and turn it off and don't forget to remove the key. the open the hood and find the battery. Then remove the negative battery terminal connector completely from the battery. with the battery disconnected turn on you headlamps as you would for night time driving. Wait an half an hour so all the current drains out the the electrical system. after the half hour TURN OFF THE HEADLAMPS BEFORE RECONNECTING THE BATTERY! Next reconnect the negative battery terminal connector back on the negative battery terminal don't forget to tighten it down. Put the key in the ignition turn the computer on to on BUT wait 5 seconds before actually starting the car, then start the car as normal and drive the car at least 25 miles 10 city 15 highway so the car can relearn all it functions again **Note first time start the car my be rough due that it need to relearn if it is acting rough apron start up let it idle for a bit before driving so it can calm down**

When I first start my car it runs great, but after warming up for eight to ten minutes, or drive on the highway I cant use the peddle more than half way without it boging, floating, and then diying until...


This sounds like a weak fuelpump, i would start by having the fuel pressure testing, this sounds like theres not enough fuel getting to the motor, so start with the fuel pressure test, hope this helps.
