    Crank sensor replaced,fuel filter replaced. It has to be something that gets hot and stop the car, come on guys some one has to know what's happening,like 4 different mechanics checked ot already and no one has any idea what the problem is. One more detail,when I unplug the Mass Sensor and start the car again, it runs all the time but then the engine check lights is on,when I plug it back it runs for a while and stalls or stop running.

    But that Mass Sensor is new,so it can't be that sensor.

    could be a faulty mas air ,might be bad to start with right from the dealer

    if it is the Mass Air Flow Sensor,the check engine light should come on,right,but that light is off,it comes on when I unplug the Mass Sensor

    Ignition coil,wires,spark plugs,crank sensor,cam sensor, coolant sensor,thermostat, 02 sensor,mass sensor,everything is new, and there is not check engine light. when I unplug the Mass sensor it runs fine but the check engine light comes on, so what is the prblem?

    you need a new computer or ecm, that is a often problem in monteros,they are very complicated electrinically ,you will need to replace the ecm unless ypou know some one who can reset it,but like I told you it's very difficult do do it.,and I wouldn't re comend a used one,they are very delicate,a new one could cost you around $6 to 700 hundred.

The condition you describe is usually caused be a vacuum leak. You should check all vacuum hoses for tightness.
Maybe PCV valve or things on that system.

I just purchased a 1999 Mitsubishi Montero sport with tow package and when I went to use the hookup as soon as I turned on my headlights it blew the fuse

I don't show factory provisions for installation of a tow package so the wiring may have been a matter of guesswork. You wouldn't need a headlight connection for normal towing.

Where do I find the air filter on my 1999 Montero Sport?

It's probably not your air filter, but that is located at the end of the big hose on the right side under the hood, it looks like a big box. It sounds like it might be the idling sensor.

Starter cranks slow

By your description I would say BATTERY. Don't know how old the battery is. The average life of a battery is about 3 years, sometimes less, sometimes more.
