Default 94 altima stalls frequently!! HELP

I have had this problem for about two months now where my '94 Altima will
start-up drive for about 5 miles and the dashlights will come on and the
engine will not run. After coasting to the side of the road I will wait
for usually 4-5 min and it will start up again and drive fine usually for
at least another 20-30 miles before happening again. At times the wait
for the restart has taken more than a hour.

The shop I brought it to believed it was the fuel pump, therefore replaced
ther pump with the fuel filter and checked the fuel lines, however no

Next they replaced the distributor and distributor cap because of heavy
corrosion. It stalled on the way home from the shop.

I would replace the valve cover gasket and replace the spark plugs and wires. Excessive oil on the sparks will make the car shut off. I have a lot of oil on my position 4 spark plug and will replace the plugs and gasket tomorrow. Another thing is you should replace the fuel filter (part is usually like 10 bucks) and PCV valve.
