1999 Dodge Intrepid Dies while driving and sometimes won't start

It has a 3.2 engine, Sometimes car dies while driving, sometimes it has trouble starting, might have to try 3 or 4 times to get it to start, Motor turns just does not start engine. I replaced the MAP sensor, did not correct problem, thinking it may be a Camshaft Position Sensor? Help.

    I have a 1999 Intrepid with the 2.7 engine in it. I will be driving and it will all of a sudden just die on me, after a couple of tries it will restart with no problem. Could it be the fuel filter? Pump?

I could very well be the TPS throttle position sensor acting up. I had a very similar situation on a 99 Concorde with the same engine in it in my shop today. Go to a shop that is able to do a data stream on the engine. What it is, is they hook up a scanner and have the ability to watch all the sensors as the car starts/runs.

An old question, but writing this for archival purposes, in case someone else has the same/similar problem with their 3.2L. I have a 2001 ES model, and had trouble getting it started a while back (around 60K; now have 135K). Turned out to be a fuel injector was leaky, not holding pressure when engine was shut off, and making it very hard to get the car started. Had all injectors replaced at a dealer ($600 job) - probably could have done it myself, but haven't had a problem since. Starting it, anyway.

I had similar problems with my 99 concorde 2.7 engine. It would not start, and when it did it would sputter.

Had it looked at and it was the timing chain.

Is there a code? What does the engine do? If the vehicle just dies without warning you might have a bad connection to the fuel pump. Check under the rear seat, this is where the wire harness to the fuel pump is located that goes to fuel pump relay. Check for corrosion.

Check engine light come on 2001 dodge intrepid dies while driving

If the check engine light comes on first, then the engine dies, check the computer for trouble codes.
If the engine dies first, normal for the check engine light to come on.
You will need to figure out if the engine is loosing spark or fuel or both.

Set timing mode 1995 cadillac deville

Depending on the trouble codes, it may be the ECM. (computer)
You can have the car scanned for codes or attempt it yourself.
The "set timing mode" is the section of the computer program that you access to change the base timing. It should not show up on the display unless you access it.
