Default 300c shuts off while driving

I have a 300c chrysler 5.7 2008
the first time i started having problems with it i would drive it and the steering wheel would get hard and just turned off happend to me maybe 3 times in the freeway and street then , my wife was driving it and it heated up it made a cranking noise the fan of the radiator was stuck i guess ? and the radiator messed up we replaced it and the motor still made a cranking noise so the motor locked i guess because it over heated , i replaced the motor and it the car works now but the shutting off while driving still persist i was thinking it was the old motor but its happing with the new one i drive it and it shuts off it tells me it the oil and i noticed when it reaches temp 213 it shutss off , i replaces sverything dealing with the oil , the thermostat the oil filters everything and the problem still persist when the temp hits 213 . I take it to the dealers And they tell me that the car is fine that they cant find anything wrong with it that the car doesnt have any stored codes as to why this might happen and they just suggest a tune up. 3 different mecanics and they dont have a clue please someone if u have this problem let me know what t could be causing it. Or if you live in Houston TX lmk of a good chrysler mecanic please and thank you

fuel filter would always be clogged and won't matter if starting or running its still clogged. and fuel filter is in the pump itself not external. What you do is take it to a dealer driver when them make it do what you say it does. or does it only happen some times>
