Ford Taurus Shuts Off While Driving

Yesterday, while I was driving on a busy street, my car’s engine shut off. I immediately put it into park, and tried to restart the engine, however there wasn’t even a crank noise. The radio and air was still working just fine. I kept trying for about 5 minutes, until it finally restarted.

There have been two similar situations prior to this. However, the other two situations, my car started back up on its own. Yesterday was the first time it refused to start up, which is why I feel like it’s getting worse.
