Default Y engine turns off when i stop

When my 2003 turbo gets hot during lots of stop and go,like city driving the engine shuts off.This seems to happen only when its hot out.It did not occur this past winter but is doing it again now that we are in warmer temps again...
no mechanic can seem to pinpoint this issue.The car runs great other than that.I've had it from 6000 miles,it now has 114,000 on the meter.HELP!!

Welcome to the forums.
When was last time plugs & wires were done? Resistance goes up with heat. Get some good aftermarket wires and plugs - gap plugs no wider than 0.040 - and see what that does.
