We need a few more details about the problem. When it happens, how it happens, what's been done about it and does it start right back up.

When the van is warm and ready to go, it start down the road fine and all of a suddenly the check engine light come and when you turn the corner or stop on brake it cuts off. It crank right back up and latter down the road it does the same. I replace spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, coil, map sensor, spark plugs. Whats next

The "check engine" light is an indicator for a system that monitors many electronic functions in the system, also called the "malfunction indicator lamp" (MIL). It can come on for any of hundreds of different causes from any of the systems that the computer monitors. Some are very important and can lead to further component or engine damage and some are emissions related not as serious but still a problem and need to be repaired.

Your first step is to have the computer scanned to retrieve the trouble codes that were set when the check engine light came on. Those codes will give you specific information about what the computer saw and will get you pointed in the right direction to find your problem. With a 1996 or newer and some 95 cars and you have an AutoZone or Advanced auto parts in your area, they will read them for free. Once you have these code numbers, we can be a lot more specific about what your problem may be.
