Car stalls while driving.

The vehicle stalls without warning. It sometimes stalls while at a stoplight or while driving down the road/highway. I have had a complete tune up along with a fuel pump, crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor, air mass sensor and god knows what else. I have tried to find out who else has had the problem and they are many and the only common factor is that no one has found a resolution. Thank you, jerry bernier.

2002 Buick Lesabre 3. 8 l engine would be hard to start after it was driven and restarted after 15 minutes (or more) of being off. The car sometimes has to wait for . 5 hours before it will start. This happened a year ago also. I have checked the maf sensor. The car has also stalled while driving at low speeds. If I wait for 3 minutes to restart after stalling it will restart and usually go long distances 100 miles without failure.

Vehicle was then towed to the dealership, but the mechanic determined that the problem could not be duplicated. Vehicle would stall while driving at any speed. The fuel pressure regulator was replaced under recall 03054 and the ignition control module was also replace but neither of these repairs corrected the problem.
