Are you saying that you had the codes, replaced everything and now it will only run for 20 mins? Or do you still have a cam sensor code and a speed sensor code?

Right the last two just piped up I'm also thinking it might be the after market CD player I have read online that might be causing it

Your running for 20 minutes issue.....will it start back up after it dies or do you have to wait for an hour before it will start again?

Yes I have to wait a few hrs

Change out your Engine Coolant Temp Sensor. When your car warms up, it's telling the computer that it's still cold. So the computer dumps too much fuel into the throttle body. That's why it will start when the engine is cold.
