It could be the fuel pump. I've never heard of a cut off date for a 2001 model with the fuel pump recall. Does it seem to happen or is it worse when you have less than 1/4 tank? I've seen a couple threads where people were driving and the car seemed like it hit a wall and did pretty much what you described. They too had to wait for a while to restart the car. In both of those threads it was recommended to check the fuel filter, especially if you haven't changed it in the last 30,000 miles.
