1996 Ford Contour GL 2.0 Engine Stalls

I have replaced the fuel pump, timing belt, mass airflow sensor and
repaired the fuel injector wires that were bear and touching for this
vehicle. It runs fine and idle in park but after you put it in drive,
it shakes and cuts off after 4 to 5 minutes. Any suggestions?

Idle Air Control Valve. It's very common.

Thanks. They said they checked the Idle Air Control Valve and it is
ok. Could there be anything else causing this problem?

The "4 to 5 minutes" part is interesting. Have you checked the fuel
pressure at the exact time when the car quits? Perhaps you have a bad
pressure regulator or even a wiring connection to the fuel pump that becomes
open when hot.
