CPS can cause it to just die instantly. Does it idle rough?

Could be many, many things.
CPS would be first.
Could be a bad UVCH.
Dirty fuel, filter, fuel pickup tube.
Dirty oil.
Bad ICP sensor.

Yep, camshaft pos sensor. UVCH is the under valve cover harness. Do some searches, you'll find out. They can get burned up, chaffed, etc. And since they provide the power to fire your injectors, it can cause rough idling and dying.

They can still chaff and the pins can get burnt up or get loose without ever touching them.

yeah its got some oil in it. i unplugged it this morning and went to work and it ran fine.on the way back from work when i would stop at a stop sign or light and had my foot on the brake it would idle kinda rough or kinda high. so i pulled over and plugged it back up and cranked it and it ran for about a minute then stalled, so i unplugged it again and it ran fine. safe to assume that this is my problem?
