David, on all of the HFM(efi) engines the injectors can be shut off if the ECU senses excessive misfire to protect the Catalyst. Sound as if this is happening to your engine. Some one will need to scan(live data) while this is happening to see just what the problem really is.
Injectors will start again on engine restart until the misfires happen again.
