Re: When drive my 1995 Intrepid it keeps stalling?
First thing to do is clean battery terminals. Then clean the grounds on the frame rails 1 is right under the battery tray, the other is about the same area but other side of car. That would be the first thing to try. It also could be a faulty ignition switch as well you can take the covers off the column and have a peak at the wiring if its burnt you found the prob. You might also have it scanned for codes could also be a bad cam sensor or crank sensor.

98 and 99 intrepid was manufactured with weak fuel pumps causing them to vapor lock try pouring cool water on the fuel rails on the intake to calm vapored gas then try to start it. Even the temp gauge at half way mark is probably still low on coolant causing engine to be warmer than normal causing the vapor lock to fix this problem replace the fuel pump with a 2000 or newer intrepid fuel pump that carries a little higher psi to prevent vapor lock from reoccurring this pump is compatible with your 98 it will plug right in
If you have a electronic dash you can turn your car over 5 times without starting it and it will give you the codes. This sounds like possible vacuum hose,distributor cap wires and plugs. Hope this helps.
Check if the fan turns on a few minutes after a cold start. It may be a problem with the fuse or the relay. Check if you loose coolant, there may be a leak somewhere, the hose, bad fuel pump, radiator leaks or a bad radiator cap.
Has the fuel filter been chg. lately. If it has, maybe a fuel pressure test is in order. Fuel pump might be geeting weak and does not show up until it gets warmed up. Fuel pumps are a common problem on this type of cars.
I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.
I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.
