Only after cruising? Is it a KA or is it a swapped motor?
If you still have one it could be a fouled MAF. If it did it more frequently it could be a bad TPS.
More details would be nice

In mine, it's hard to get started. Starts strong then can die right away. Usually takes me a half dozen starts, then a 5 min wait before it will start and stay running. Once it's warm it will start no problem. I thought at first it was a bat problem, but since it starts up strong ruled that out. I'm really not sure what the problem is, especially since it goes well once it's going.

So you made a dupe account to post a question? stupid.

Is your car swapped?
Stock ECU/flashed/ROM?
Have you adjusted/cleaned your IACV?

Probably the most important question. Do this if you haven't already done so.
