you need to do some testing and find out what the car is actually losing when it shut off, check fuel pressure, and check for spark for starters, when the car will not start, i know it isnt that easy to check for spark on the quad 4 but if you unbolt the cover flip it over while leaving it plugged in you can use a test light that is hooked to battery ground while you have someone crank it over.
this will give us a better idea of what the problem is it could be alot of things.
