I have a Grand Voyager that while driving the engine will shut down and I need to coast to the side of the road. I have tried re-starting the engine while coasting in neutral but engine will not restart. If I coast to a stop and place the car in park the car will re-start and I can continue on. The engine gives no warning as to shutting down. No warning lights or service engine lights come on before or during this time. I have recently changed the fuel pump and fuel filter about 6 months ago when the pump went out. I also changed the fuel pump relay and the shutdown relay a couple of days ago to rule them out (still shuts down). This has been going on for approximately 4-6 weeks now.

When mine was doing this, it turned out to be a frayed wire to the crankshaft position sensor.

I checked the wiring as best I could. I cleaned the connection and reinstalled. I drove the car for several minutes and it stalled nut did not completely shutdown. After nursing the gas pedal the car continued this once. It did shutdown 2 more times and I had to coast to a stop, put it in park and restart the car. How can I check the camshaft position sensor wiring? Could it be a fuel flow problem?

The camshaft sensor wire goes to a connector that is on or near the passenger-side motor mount. The sensor itself is visible only by removing the wheel and mud guard on that side.

Yes, it could be a fuel issue, either the fuel pump, filter, pressure regulator or one or more injectors.

I'm sorry I meant can I check crankshaft position sensor wiring other than tracing the wiring visually for its entire length? Thanks for your help.
