Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have changed coil,computer,shut off relay,distributor,and a few other things with no luck. It is fine to start then I hit warm temp & it just dies with no sputter or any warning. I have tried so much now I can't afford to tow it anywhere to do anything more. Help! It is a 96 150 2wd 05.9L 8cyl ext cab long bed.
