Does this happen when the engine is cold or warm or just whenever?

well right now its about 45-60 degrees F outside, but it just started happening recently. It will happen when the engine is hot or cold though, i could use the car for an hour shut it off for 10 mins and try to restart and it will take like 5 times. I have to give it alot of gas and if i let off the gas it will shut off.

search around the forum for "main relay" you may have that age old problem, luckily it's a cheap fix.... it's more commonly related to starting issues but it's not a bad thing to check out.... any lights or codes or does it just flat out die?

Get yourself a fuel pressure tester and check to see what the fuel pump is putting out..
