If it's shutting off while driving why would u replace starter. Sounds like an issue with electrical wiring. Check the bottom of fuse box for broken, loose or corroded wires. Check all harness plugs to make sure they're not loose

I was just saying i put a new starter on a few months ago so that cant be why it womt start..
