WILL A GROUND BATTERY CABLE CAUSE MY ENGINE TO RUN AND QUIT RUN AND QUIT?

Sensors, starter, fuel filter, fuel pump have all been replaced. Each shop says its fixed and get home and problems. Start it you may go 10 miles and die or go 2 blocks. Everything looses power.

Battery has been replaced and alternator checked. Connectors on battery have been clean.

So I'm wondering if a ground cable corroded for the inside could cause this problem.
