Unless you know it to be fresh, I think you may be about to lose the timing belt and that can be a disaster.

1991 Cressida How do i know if my alternator is bad?


if the alternator is not charging , there will be a red battery light on the dash
reasons for engine stopping are
broken timing belt/chain, cam/crank position sensor failure
immobilizer activation
ignition control module failure
run the fault codes as some engine lights only light up for urgent problems that require you to stop the engine

Any chance the check engine light is on ?
You are correct in thinking the starting fluid would point to a lack of fuel, but its also possible the engine would start without it once something cools off a bit. Even a wiring harness problem could come and go.
If the idle air control valve failed, it would stall at stops but should start if you push on the gas pedal to open the throttle.
What happens if you shift to neutral when coming to a stop ?
It really sounds like an electrical component getting hot and failing, then coming back to life once it cools off.

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.
