Any cracks in line to brake booster? Check for a loose vacuum line concerning the brake booster or faulty check valve. Hoping this is not the brake booster itself. Good Luck!

No cracks in the line, can run for few minutes.....then shuts off again, like it may be getting hot....but its not hot....why would the engine shut off over brake cylinder? Ran fine, and no problems until I changed wheel cylinder....would that cause it? or something else?
