0340 is ignition related. We'll deal with that later.

Sounds like your car is overheating.
1) are you loosing coolant?
2) Is the underhood auxillary fan right behind the radiator turning on when the temp gauge reads above 3/4? You can also test it by engaging the A/C and turning it on. Do so with a friend with the hod up so you can hear the sound.

He might be meaning it shuts off like a bad coil does when it gets hot.

IF the engine is over heating so high it shuts down good luck with having an engine left.
