Not sure what kind of car this is or year and etc, you will need to get the car to die and start with a couple of tests to see whats not working. next time it doesnt start, try spraying starting fluid into throtle and see if it starts and dies, if it does then we know its a fuel problem and may be fuelpump. if that doesnt make it start then remove a spark plug wire and place it near a metal object like the motor or a bracket and have someone try to start it and watch for sparks, if theres no spark then you may want to have the control module tested or the coil, hope this is helpful,

sounds like a bad cam sensor. have scanned if light on dash is on. if no scanner any auto parts store will scan for free. a bad or failing crank sensor will make vehicle stall out after a few seconds or minutes. if it is bad enough it will not start. because it controls timing.

check the camshaft and crankshaft sensors. If they get faulty (typical in GM cars) the PCM would shut down the engine. Happened the same problem to me and solved it by changing the crankshaft sensor.
