Well you need to do some investigating. You need to determine if it is ignition or fuel causing the problem. The cheapest way it to purchase a fuel injection pressure tester and hook it up leaving the guage where you can easily see it from the drivers seat. Take it for a ride til it acts up and watch the guage. If you lose fuel pressue then you got your issue. If not then you need to start testing individual ignition parts such as the ignition module and crank sensor
sounds like your alternator is about to go out, not feeding enough currant to the electrical components that need it, i.e. ECM , ESM..and so on. you may want to have that checked or replaced. always a good idea to replace the battery when replacing the alternator.
Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual at your local AP store for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step RR section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy
Typically the Silhouette and the Transport are the same vehicle. I spent about 45 minutes to replace the Alternator on my former Transport. It depends upon the prevailing Labor Rate what you will have to pay. I would guess somewhere around $75-$200 fro Labor alone.
Remove the two front motor mounts mounted on the frame above the radiator.This is not a weight bearing mount it is for vibration. The engine will not move much once removed. Ratchet the motor forward using a ratcheting strap hooked to the black arm that extends above the motor located on the right side. Remove the serpentine belt. Remove the two mounting bolts on the face of the alternator and the one behind the alternator. Remove the connections and alternator. To reinstall, reverse the process. You will not have enough clearance to remove the alternator without ratcheting the motor forward.
