Hello Kenny and welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask if further info is needed.

You have already replaced the main electrical parts (coil, relay, cap etc..), but have you checked the fuel pump, filter, cleaned fuel tank etc..?
when the vehicle is turning off, is the starter operating (engine cranking)?
and if yes, when the engine is cranking, are you getting spark? and are you getting good fuel pressure?
was the fuel pressure checked?

I'm sorry for all the questions, but we need to confirm to narrow down the list of culprits, instead of replacing parts at random.

Regards, Billy
