Change fuel filter first, if that doesn't help, check timing, and timing belt, spark plugs, and wires. Also look and listen for vacuum leaks with a stethoscope, or a length of fuel line hose held to your ear. Wiggle all vacuum hoses while engine is running, and listen for a hissing sound.

Car runs good for about 15 minutes then just dies. Starts right back up and runs good but when you take your foot off the pedal it dies. Put it away for the night, got in next day to see if it still does...

Sounds like you need to take it in to a service dept and have the primary module reset. If I'm not mistaken, in that year and model, everything works off of a computer "brain", like a CPU in your computer. If this is the problem and not a fuel line issue, you will need the service tech to put your car on their equipment to fix this issue. It can't really be done in your garage with a wrench. Sorry.
