CAR STALLS AT ABOUT 10-15 MINUTES AND WON'T RESTART

1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse • 145,000 miles

Car starts, exhaust begins to get rich after 5 minutes, car cools and restart is possible. Replaced the following: fuel pump, idle air control valve, new spark plugs, coil, wires, ecu/engine computer, oxygen sensor, cleaned throttle body, fuel pump relay. 1year prior the timing belt, coolant temp. Sensor and cam shaft sensor were replaced but no stalling problem until now.

Ya know you should scan for codes and check fuel pressure before doing all that work. Check the cranks sensor for ohms, it's resistance may be to high and gets hot and won't send a signal.
