The crankshaft sensor is a common problem for your situation. When you have a problem, it won't start as the engine is hot. Open the hood, let it cool then you can start it again. Have a shop diagnose on the crank shaft sensor and replace it. Good luck.

Starts but when put in gear it dies out

possibly a bad fuel injector. sometimes when cars are ran completely out of gas, the pump will pull tiny particles out of the tank and will clog the injectors.
