420A 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse Rs drives good but shuts off randomly (HELP)

I have a 97 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS Auto Trans. My car keeps shutting off while idling and while driving. I replaced Fuel Pump, Starter , Pcv Valve , ASD relay , Camshaft sensor , Idle Air Control Valve, New Radiator with new coolant, brand new oil pan and transmission pan with new fluids. I bought a new EGR valve, can this be the problem why? Although Fuel Injectors have not been changed. Can the fuel Injectors cause the car to shut off? My car a month ago threw two codes P0442 - Evap Leak (small leak) , can this be the MAIN reason why the car shuts off even while driving? I would appreciate all the responses because my car has a lot of potential and I hate experiencing my car just die out while warming up and while driving or even at a stop light/sign. Has about 207,000+ miles on it and still running like a champ because I do all the maintenance on time and with the best products.

i dont think an evap leak would cause your engine to die.
