This is Caused by the Fuel Pump. If you remove the Fuel Pump relay and it will try to Crank, You have a Bad Fuel Pump. I do Believe that the Fuel Pump is located inside the Fuel Tank on the Sunfire. Not an easy Repair But, Necessary

if it shuts off after running for a while and will not restart for about 10 min,a bad crank sensor will cause this. abad crank sensor will make car shut off and not restart for about 10 min. put a scanner on to make sure. a check engine light does not allways come on. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free.

Likely the ignition system is shutting down. Code tests must be done as well as individual component tests, using a digital multi-meter and a manual such as chilton or haynes as a guide. The small explosion you hear likely is from a small amount of unburned fuel entering the hot exhaust and exploding right after the ignition is off. Once you fix the cause of shutdown that will disappear. The main items I'd test first are the crank sensor, cam sensor and the ignition switch itself, any of which can cause a shutdown. Also make sure the fuel pump isn't getting hot and turning itself off.
