Looks like temperature relaited.
Did you try coolant temp. sensor for Engine Control Module?

    not sure i was told when we took it up to the shop and put on the machine that they checked everything and all they found was a blown fuse to the stereo and it was the cars computer i'm soooo mad we have had 5 men that have over 20 years experience try and figure it out and they are stumped

    Machine sometimes is useless , you have to think when and how it happend.
    It gives you a clue.
    Did they monitor data from ECU?
    From what you are saying I see temp. relaited problem.
    When engine gets hot , it shuts down.
    It's possible to be electrical issue too , relays or something like that.
    And to be honest with you it's easier to troublshoot the problem when car is not starting to see if it has spark , fuel etc....
    I have a shop and deal with it all the time .
    Good luck.

Assuming that is a motor out of a 1999 Nissan Sentra this link should be a link to a Timing Belt Diagram. There is insufficient space to explain everything involved in removing the old one and all the parts that have to be pulled, if you need those directions I highly recommend you get the Haynes Repair Manual on a 1999 Nissan Sentra for those instructions.

The check engin light stay on all the time in a 1994 Nissan Sentra I have taken it to the dealer for a diagnostic evulation and was told it was the gcr valve I had it replaced and the light is still on. ...

Some ECUs require a reset and this is often done via the diagnostic code scanner itself. Auto parts stores will scan free, but I don't know if they would charge to reset the error register. You would have to call them and ask.
