Question about Cars & Trucks
If it's a stick shift, try push starting the car, it may be a bad ignition switch not working in the start position and working in the on position, related to the fuel pump circuit.

SOURCE: 95 saturn won't start when hot
Blair, I would take a look at he TPS (throttle position sensor) located on the throttle body. In other words, it sounds as thought sensor when heated is changing its value to "open" or "shorted".
If the car starts OK when cold, use a hair dryer to heat the TPS when the engine is cold to see if you can duplicate the problem.
Also is the a service engine light on? Codes?
If you have a "digital volt/ohm meter" available you can read the variable resistance of the sensor when the problem occurrs to determine if the sensor is defective.

SOURCE: gas not getting to engine
sounds like your fuel pump, normally fuel pumps die gradually not just like that, so best check fule pump fuses first, also i can not remeber if these have a fuel cut off switch, this is normally located arround the fire wall it looks like a red or black rubber button, if you have one you can press that and see if that sorts it, if not then it more than likley is the fuel pump and will possibly need replacing, but check the other things first, better a new fuse than a new pump...hope that helps a bit
