I have replaced icm, tps, cpk, alternator, cap rotor, charged and tested battery, coil replaced, replaced both up stream 02 sensors it starts and runs for awhile then it stalls and throws a p0320 code. Once it stalls wont start again till after it sits fuel pump whistles and when you remove gas cap sounds like its blowing air or hissing sound. Dont know what to check next?

Guess you would need to plug in a scan tool to monitor the various components as listed above to see which could be working out of specs.

You would need to drive the vehicle for some distance for the monitors to be ready. Try driving on highway for 20 minutes and then back to city driving for another 1 minutes, Go back to highway for another 10 to 20 minutes and recheck if they are ready. While driving aviod sudden/abrupt accelerations.
