1997 Plymouth Breeze 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

i have a 97 plymouth breeze, 2.0 litre. Recently, it will just shut off, no matter if in idle or driving. When driving, engine runs pretty well. There is no sputter, stumble or ortherwise. It just stops. Wont start for 20 minutes or so. Run for a few minutes then stop. It only cuts out after reaching normal operating temp. Thought at first the coil. I replaced with one from salvage yard. I had no change.

Do below to determine if it's fuel or spark issue:

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -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, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
