SOUND LIKE FAULTY FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR OR LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS.CHECK FOR LEAKING FUEL INJECTORS.HOOK FUEL PRESSURE TESTER TO TEST PORT WHICH IS THE SCRADER VALVE.WHEN YOU TURN IGNITION TO THE ON POSITION ENGINE OFF.FUEL PRESSURE ON FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE SHOULD HOLD STEADY 40 - 46 PSI. IF FUEL PRESSURE BLEEDS OFF SLOWLY YOU HAVE LEAKING CLOGGED DIRTY FUEL INJECTORS. COULD BE FAULTY CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. CODE SCAN CAR FIRST TO SEE WHAT FAULT CODE COMES UP BEFORE BUYING NEW PARTS.

Sounds like something getting warm/hot as engine warms up. Could be the MAP sensor, Coil/Coil pack, Ignition Switch(not the key cylinder), or possibly the Oxygen Sensor.

Next time it does this, pull a plug wire out of the coil pack and hold it close to the tower, and have someone crank the engine to see if your still getting a spark.
Could also be a loose connector on the throttle body injection, or a broken wire.

The ignition module and the coil pack are not the same thing .. i think the coil pack is mounted on the front side of the engine nearest the radiator it might have three separate coils or they maybe all be in one pack . the ignition module is mounted under the coil pack . i would look at the ignition module 1st if the coil are separate and the crank sensor before i would replace the coils . a lot of these cars suffer from heat soak . which means when they get hot and some of the circuits open and cause a no spark condition . which is what the ignition module do a lot .

Have fuel pressure tested, or at the least, change fuel filter. Fuel pump may be on it's way out but it only takes 5 minutes to test the fuel pressure to confirm.

Your problem is the ignition module that is mounted under the ignition coils. This would have to be a 2.5. Good luck
