Dodge Neon

Guys, need some serious help here. I have been through so much repair with this car, I feel like im married to it. Its a 1995 dodge neon 2.0L SOHC with about 130,000M on it. I have replaced the head gasket, the radiator, the water pump, all the plugs and the coil pack twice, the wires, the EGR, the PCV. Ive checked the timiing. I have run my hand held scan tool to it, and it doesnt pick up any codes. Heres the (most recent) variation of the problem. It would run fine till it heats up. Then it would stall out. Thats when I replaced the Idle Air Control Valve and Motor. After I did that, I let it idle in the drive way for about 25 minutes. I rolled it out and took it around the block but after I passed three side streets, not a quarter mile, it completely stalled out on me. There wasnt even throttle response. So I tried to start it up and it would just turn over but no start. I let it sit there for about 10 minutes, and I started it up and drove it home really fast. I didnt turn it off, but I scanned it again and no codes. So I tried to drive around again and I didnt make more then 200 ft when it died again. This time, it wouldnt start up again. I let it sit in the street for a day and it still just turned over with no start. I have the injectors sitting in front of me, and the resistance measures fine. I am about to go check the plugs to see what they tell me, but could this be a much more simpler problem, or could be the fuel pump? I have replaced that thing 2 times as well for the notorious problems they have. Please, anything you can give me may put this peice back on the road again!

Feels like a lot of guessing going on here so I will toss out a prospect. The camshaft sensor, not sure the test for that on the neon but those are some typical symptoms.
