    Turn the key to the on position without starting the car and listen for the sound of the fuel pump from the area of the back seat. If you do not hear the pump pressurizing the fuel system you have a bad fuel pump. If it is working properly, I would next check the crank position sensor or CPS. This sensor often fails from engine heat and will cause the car to shut down at speed and then permit the car to start up again as you described. It's usually mounted by a single bolt on the intake side of the engine block or on the transmission case as you mentioned.
