Default 323 Stalls when hot

Hi all I recently purchased a 323 Astina 1.6 2000 model and in one week it has broken down 3 times.

It has had the crank angle sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter and the MAF replaced and is still stalling intermittently.
Drives fine but have noticed when it stalls it's either when stopped at lights or when driving slowly and it's normally a hot day. The temp guage doesn't increase. When it stalls it won't start until i let it sit for at least another 5 to 10 minutes.
The previous owner had the crank angle sensor replaced and i noticed on the Auto electricians receipt it had written fuel pressure unsteady.

My mechanic has told me without it breaking down for him he isn't sure what to check.
I'm not mechanically savvy and as this car was used for work transporting elderly people with dementia it's effecting my job.
Please help.
