What do you mean by it "shakes & cuts out while driving"? The vehicle literally shakes, or just the engine shakes at an idle or while driving? and it cuts out when, at idle, driving? Let me know when specifically it has this problem, it might help me on giving you a better suggestion(s) on what problem(s) might be causing this.

Have an OBII scan (fault scan) done. Any good parts store can do it (Autozone, Advance, etc..) usually for free. Have them scan it a give you list of faults that were recorded by your rigs computer. It's easy to chase actual faults instead of throwing parts at it. I'm suspecting MAF (mass air flow sensor) and/or TPC (Throttle Positioning Sensor)
