Ignition Problems

MY DANG CAR KEEPS DIEING ON ME. I can't seem to pin point the problem. I've did a alternator and battery check and its all good.The car will just die and i'll pull over and try to start it and I've got nothin, sit for a bit and it will start, maybe it will let me ride for a day or not, my buddy said its my ignition. Does anyone know?

When did it start? Run strong one day and then next day like a dog? any CEL? Can you hear you fuel pump when you turn the key?
