Johnny,

Have they scanned the computer to see if the its detecting anything and setting any fault codes?

When it has stalled on you dose it crank over but not start?

IT CRANKED FOR THE NEXT DAY . SO SHOWED NO PROBLEMS YES IT TURNED OVER BUT NOT CRANK
Expert:  Ronnie replied 10 months ago.

One common cause for this type of intermittent stalling on the Continental can be caused by a failing crankshaft position sensor or the connection to it and it can come and go. I would start with having them inspect the Crankshaft Position sensor connector for loose, damaged or pushed out pins. If the connection and the wiring to it look okay then consider replacing the sensor.
