    what are some more symptoms, is it still doing it? continuously or intermittenly? my guess would be the fuel pump, check to see if you have pressure at the fuel rail.

Check fuel pump relay.If thats ok check fuel pressure by dissconecting the fuel pipe to engine.If no fuel is getting there change the pump.If you are getting fuel change the crank sensor.

It dies while your driving and acts like its out of gas when you try to start it runs fine till it gets hot

there might be a problem with the delivery of the fuel. Check the fuel filter. If it needs replacement check the quality of the fuel. Your tank may have dirt that needs to be removed. It could also be the injectors.
