Your not giving us a lot of information to go on if you want help. As far as being in the Phoenix area, can't help.

Sounds like a pump/float issue inside the tank. Not sure if the PT has it, but might be shutting off because it thinks your out of gas and doesn't want the pump to drain dry. The pump depends on the gas to lubricate and cool it and can burn out if the tank becomes very low.

Maybe someone else will have another idea but sounds like it's going to need a good diagnostic by a mechanic.

The gas level is bad{sending unit. Very common problem with PTs}, and the stalling...it could need plugs and wires. They seem to love new plugs and wires.

It sounds more like a fuel pump to me. Often when fuel pumps begin to fail, they'll go out when they get hot, but work when they're cool. That's likely why you were able to start it first thing in the morning, but after allowing it to warm up, it would not restart.

A bad fuel level sender would not keep the engine from starting.

Sounds like a fuel pump issue to me too. The fuel pump , fuel level sender and float are all one unit. If you check the PDC under the hood just above the air filter, you will see a fuel pump fuse and a fuel pump relay. Check both for tightness and to see any visable signs of failure. Also I seem to remember in the back of my mind that the ASD can be triggered by low fuel pressure to keep the engine from going lean. Check it too.
