Sometimes when its cold, its works for like 10minutes before it goes off. Have serviced the injector, nozzles and have changed the fuel pump, plugs and fuses. The battery and engine was changed 6months back.

Do you
have the same problem?

Did you check for trouble codes and is the MIL indicating?
Does keeping slight pressure on the accelerator keeps the engine running?
Are you able to restart?

Yes to all the questions you asked.
Yes, keeping slight pressure on the accelerator keeps the engine running. And am able to restart on park or Neutral but it goes
off afterwards and car stops moving.

Are you getting any trouble codes?
If no, have the throttle body and IAC cleaned and retest. Seems the idle speed is too low.
