Ive had the same problem. You have a vacuum leak or the EGR is clogged with carbon. The best solution would be to look for leaks around the breather and vacuum hoses. For the EGR just remove it and clean the gunk out. Im giving this info asuming that your dodge is a 90-97 or so.

I have a 91 Buick Century that dies after a few minutes.

Fuel or ignition problem? Right after it dies, check for spark at a plug. A bad coil will often work till it's warmed up, then fail. If you still have ignition spark after it dies, or if it starts right up again, then it's something else.
Check the fuel pressure to make sure it's at proper pressure. Also scan the computer for any trouble codes that are related. It's easy on your car if you understand how the flashing light translates to two-digit number codes. Use a wire or paperclip to bridge terminals A and B of the diagnostic test connector protruding out from bottom of dash. It's a 12 pin connector. A and B are the two upper right terminals on it. Now turn key on and the check engine light will begin blinking the codes. Code 12 is diagnostic mode-one blink, pause, pause,blink, pause blink. See? 22 would be blink, pause, blink, pause, pause, blink, pause, blink. See? 33 would be three blinks, short pause and then 3 rapid blinks. (I"m going blink crazy!) Well, get the codes-they are two digit codes, and will keep repeating, lower numbers first and in succession, over and over while in diagnostic mode. Maybe an idle sensor fault will show up.
Good luck.

When 1993 dodge caravan is driven awhile, It sometimes will not

idle is set at factory but if the idle air control valve is bad it won't idle right also if the throttle position sensor is not working right it won't idle right a diagnostic scan should be able to determine which one is needed.

I have a 2002 montero sport and i've changed the alternator and battery and now when i start the truck it works fine but when i get to a stop light or stop sign the truck will die out on me, it starts with...

Two areas to consider are the MAP sensor and the Idle Control Valve, both pricey items for your vehicle. I'd go to a local autoparts chain and see if they can run a free diagnostic test for you. The codes will point you in the right direction.
