99 intriped, Drives great but will turn off at ramdom
On my 99 intrepid she runs just fine, but after driving for some time, I cant put a time on it but it seams like its only after she gets up to operating temp. i will be going along and next thing i know she has turned off. I don't even feel it shut off, I look down and the motor it no longer running. If I am at highway speeds the car will start up again, like a push start but in an automatic. When I come to a stop and I try to restart it ,sometimes she starts right up. but others times I need to wait for 5 to 10 mins before she will start. She cranks just fine. Any help would be greats

I just fixed one like yours. When its is very quite near your car turn the key to the run position while listening for the electric fuel pump to run for a couple of seconds. It should be heard every time you put the key in the run position. The pump is in the gas tank.If you cannot hear it then take all the stuff out of your trunk so some one can get in and help you listen. There is a access cover in the back of the trunk that covers the pump. Have the person listen right on top of this cover. If you cannot hear the pump its probably worn out and needs replaced. There is also a fuel pump fuse and a relay. Check the fuse. The relay is under the hood and has many other relays next to it. I just swapped the pump relay with the one next to it to see if the pump would run. All the relays in my Dodge had the same part number on them. They use the same relay in many dodge things in our cars.
Then...after I replaced the pump my car seemed to be running on only 5 cylinders. I had to replace the coil pack under the hood.One of the six sparkplug wires stopped getting spark.
Now she runs like new...
I hope this helps you.
