You didn't replace the PUMP!!! but you were on the right track (-:

there is a high pressure pump in the tank with a strainer sock, also replace the VC (vacuum canister) while doing all that work, it is near the tank at the left rear of the vehicle and replace ANY hose that looks slightly suspect! This IS a lot of COSTLY work.

good luck

Stalls while driving

Can you be more specific does it happen only on the highway what is the speed is it when accelerating does it happen on other roads, does it start right up after stalling as it seems unlikely that it would just be the highway in order to even try and figure it out more information is required

Jeep liberty Lt 2003 ,Yellow gunk under oil cap, Jeep stalls, oil light on

oil cap , that is moisture, all cars do that driven short distances.
due to never reaching full temperature to drive out that moisture.
(or the PCV valve is clogged, ) there if which causes stalls.
its a stall plain and simplle.
engine that stall, go to to zero RPM
engines that stall , most warning lamps turn tune on ,just like it does key on first thing in the morning. its called lamp self test
and is covered in the operators, guide, its ok this must be your first stall ever.
Get a new PCV, and get fresh oil into the engine yours is too old.
Also get a full tuneup, ever do one this DECADE?
stalls have over 50 caused,do you want my wall of text on that
bet not,,, but is true,

Get the car fixed, serviced, or a full tuneup,
spark parts, filters, oil, like what we all do.. to keep it running like new,. and last longer.
the PCV valve is also a standard tune up part, if found to be
1; clogged, 2, not rattling when shook. (its just a check valve)
also that valve clogged can cause oil leaks due to excessive
crankcase pressures. (due to the vent now running backwards an clogging them)

here are some causes of stalls.
ask us blind folks why your car stalls is really impossible.
but seem everyone does, endlessly.

stalls are cause by gross MISFIRE.
(or loss of 12vdc battery power, but that is not your case)

here they are, and the wall of text page is there for fun.
good luck finding it , texting here, endlessly....

Misfiring and stalling

check fuel filter if it runs good and only acts up on sudden increase in speed then I would say fuel related for sure,have fuel pressure at rail and see what it is.

2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool

My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.

Intermittent vibration coming from engine while a/c running

Change plug wires. Most often, plug wires will only short out when they are under load, so you don't notice anything until your motor is doing a little extra work.

Car stalls while driving at high speeds

i would start by checking the spark plugs and leads. if that ok i would think there is a problem with the dispack that the spark plug leads fit to, if its cracked or any rust i would replace.
