While driving, car lost power. This happened a couple of times and then she died. Got new catalytic converter and drove home but the next day, it happened again. This time they said it was the fuel pump. New fuel pump, the next day, it happened again. Towed again and told it was the distributor. After new distributor, distributor cap, plugs and wires, the same problem. We are out about $1,000 and the car still has the same problem. Seems like it will start after sitting a while but is going shorter periods of time before dying.

Scan for codes and if none then check the cam and crank sensors for resistance.
