Help with my 89 190e plz!!!!

Hi everyone. Ok so I have an 89, 190e with 125,000 miles. My problem is that thew car randomly shuts off every time i try to take it for a spin. I dont know at what point it will decide to shut off but it will surely do it at some point during my drive. Basically what happens is that the car revs up about 3 or four times as im driving at a speed no more then 40 mph and then acts like if its going to shut off then it settles down again, does the reving up thing and decides to shut off. At that point if i try it the engine turns but won't start. I noticed that waiting maybe fifteen minutes will turn the car on after a few turns to the key and applying a bit of acceleration. I have changed the fuel filter, fuel distributor(used one), fuel pumps(new and original), idle control valve(used), ovp relay(used), and did a tune up. Im trying to figure this car out before taking it to a mechanic that may charge me an arm and a leg. Please any input would be greatly appreciated.

Is this a 2.3 or a 2.6 we are talking about?

There is a common case of stalling with these motors, I suggest checking the w201 forum for more info.

Here is a thread which basically goes over all possible causes for stalling.
