Maybe your battery isn't holding a charge or your alternator is going bad. It wouldn't hurt to checked your plugs and wires. Also, check your antifreeze. What is the weight of your oil? i.e. 5w30, 10w30, 10w40, etc., etc. Those would be my initial thoughts.

check out your coolant temp sensor and the attached wires.
