1992 Chevy Corsica 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I'vehad this car in 3 different shops not including the Chevrolet dealer It come back run for a day or so and have the same problem. The fuel pump was replaced 4 times still the same problem. The engine run good when it's running. Tune up was done summer of 2008 but the car have'nt moved 5 miles since the tune up. How to check the EGR there is no vacuum line going to it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Next time it shuts off-don't wait for nothing do below to determine if its fuel or spark problem

Disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor /distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, ECM, Ignitor camshaft and crankshaft sensors- Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
