The car cuts off while driving or idling while in drive or reverse after short trip, the carburetor is brand new I changed it after I was told that it was the problem I also put in new starter relay, alternator, and battery along with a new voltage regulator but when it stalls out and I try and start it a few times the battery dies and takes a long time to charge during jumps, when I got the battery checked it read that it was charged same with the starter and the alternator I've only had the car for a few months and only have been able to drive it the first week and a half I'm at my wits end trying to figure it out and none of the mechanics I've taking it to have given me the correct answer to my problem please help me

The battery should be load tested. Simply charging the battery or measuring voltage is not adequate. Measure charging output, too. You want to confirm that the ignition system, including for instance the ignition coil and ignition switch, are not intermittently cutting out. Coils can fail as temperature rises (resistance increases with temperature) so if you run the car for a while and all of a sudden it quits, measure the resistance of the coil windings to see if that provides a clue. Apart from that, the ENTIRE primary side ignition circuit has to be checked, using voltage drop testing (and testing of the hall effect sensor in the distributor), to rule the primary side in or out. If you want the required diagnostic steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a stalling diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you.
