Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
1999 Dodge Durango- engine just stops. Once on the interstate when I slowed to around 10 mph and once in traffic whne I slowed for a traffic light. Engine will not start again until it cools-around 10 minutes. It does not shake or show any signs the engine is going to shut down. The radio, AC ect all still work and you would not know the engine was not running until you pressed the gas pedal. I think this is eather the fuel pump or something electrical. It has been about 40 days between the two problems.
Sounds like it could be an ignition module breaking down.

You should start with the electric Radiator Fan if it's fully operational or need to be change
I had the same problem and change the PCM but nothing happend finally I findout that the electric fan is not cooling enough then I changed it and replace the radiator (new one)
my Durango running same as when I bought it 8 years ago

This vehicle does not have an ignition module. Everything is done by the PCM. It does sound electrical. Have seen crank and cam position sensors do this. You may need a scan tool to diag this to check the cam and crank signals when it happens. Otherwise you'd need a voltmeter with labscope to scope these. You'd need to find a wiring diagram to find the correct wires to tap into. The easiest place to do this is at the pcm. Or you could just replace them both, it's a pretty good bet. The pcm cuts off ignition and/or fuel if it loses either one of these. Losing fuel pressure is another possibility but you would probably feel it dying before it cut off. Cam and crank signal loss would be like cutting off the ignition switch, very sudden. There are other possibilities but these are the most common.
