Could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.

What stops a fuel pump from working ,on a grand am se v-p6 3.4 motor ? I did'nt let it warm up the other mournin g , got down the road and it shut off driving.

A fuel pump does not need to be warmed up to work. They just wear out. If its the fuel pump that's the problem it will have to be replaced.

When driving down the road my 1999 300 m will die out and not stard right away. some times it will die when driving down the road it will die and then start back up. we have replaced the cam sensor...

Was the cam sensor tested & was it found to be bad?

Was the fuel pump checked out or fuel pressure checked?

If you have good fuel pressure. Check for spark at any plug while cranking, If no spark, also place a screw driver on an injector and listen to it while someone cranks it over. If you have NO spark and NO injector click - crank sensor needs to be replaced. 95%
