Default Car Randomly stalling please help!!

My car just started stalling randomly, at first it was just when i was going in reverse, now its when i put it in drive and start to go. I can be driving at any range of speed and it stalls. Stoped at a stop light and when it turned green pushed on gas and there was some slight hesitation before going. I Just replaced the crank shaft sensor two weeks ago! im not getting any codes at all now. No one knows whats going on. i tried to listen to see if it was my fuel pump and that doesnt seem like the cause!

It would be a good idea,to take some time,and look over the wiring,going from front to back,for both the CKS & CPS....Pay special attention to the area where the CKS wiring comes in close proximity to the drive axle,there have been reported instances of it making contact,wearing the insulation off,and subsequently creating a 'ground fault',especially when turning.......Also,when checking the wiring/loom for the CPS,see if it has been,or IS getting caught between the coolant hoses,in the area between the engine & air box,which will cause the insulation to breakdown,and/or become brittle,and can also cause a situation where the wiring can 'cross-circuit',mainly when hitting bumps,or going down bumpy roadways..
