I replaced the battery and altenator, but the engine will run for about 10 minutes and then dies. Then the battery goes dead. We also eplaced the serpentine belt andall the brake lines
Do you

I need you to check for an electrical draw. Here is a how to. If there is no draw, then check alt output at the battery. Chances are (if the alt is new) you have a bad fuseable link.

Here are both how to's
