We sent it to AAmco, and they told me that they had 3 possiblities, and narrowed it down to the codes are pointing to the ingition switch. My husband thought it was the fuel sending unit also. I think I will be changing both just to be on the safe side. I have a mechanic that can do it, was the part 300.00 or was that with the labor too?

There should be a Check engine light on and a Trouble code set. If not now, it should happen soon. Look into that code. In the mean time, you can look for a vacuum leak or possible throttle position sensor. I really need more info before going anyfurther in trying to diagnose this problem. It could be so many things and pulling a code would help narrow things down.
Take the car to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes, they will scan the vehicle at no charge to you. Write the codes down and respond back to this post and we can begin problem solving.
The codes will help to narrow the system down that is causing the problem.
You might want to make sure the battery cables are clean and tight. If one of the cables has an intermittant connection problem, it will cause the car to shut down.
Good luck, let me know.
Had the same problem. PONTIAC has issued a TSB that dealer know about. The Engine is MIS-ALIGNED and needs add'l rods to be installed to fix this problem. This will be done AT YOUR EXPENSE. I found this out the hard way.
Best of Luck
