Why does my Peugeot 306 keep cutting out?

The engine of my Peugeot 306 my will suddenly cut out for about five seconds when I drive it 20 kilometres. So far, I've changed the petrol high pressure pump and the ignition coil but the problem is still there. What could it be?
Well this problem seems to be rather prevalent with these cars. However, finding the problem is still baffling many and the solutions have also been quite varied. A diagnostic may show up a fault code (but may not). Things that have been identified are the ECU, so check the connections to see if they are loose/corroded. The Lambda sensor ( exhaust system), the MAP (manifold absolute pressure sensor) and the Idle Control valve.
