Dodge 2001 2500 5.9 driving down the road truck dies when it gets warm let it sit for 10 minutes cools off starts back up

From your description it could be almost anything from a blocked fuel tank breather to a bad wiring connection with lots of stuff in between.

You need a few clues and as it takes only ten minutes of cooling before you can restart they won't be easy to find without luck or unless a fault code has been stored in the memory. I suggest you begin with a code read and then scan the ECU to check any freeze frame data.

Few electronic sensor faults will actually stop an engine but the crank/cam sensor and/or circuit will, though if such a thing had happened the engine check light would have come on as soon as or just before the engine cut.

Without the afore-mentioned luck such a problem as yours is likely to be found by careful and systematic checks designed to discover what is definitely not at fault. and then concentrating energies onto what remains - even if it means springing into action to use that ten minute window for more revealing checks.

A co-pilot checking live data with a scanner while you drive would be a fine aid to discovering an elusive electronic fault, an obd recorder would offer an alternative.
The trouble is the fault might not be electronic...

Clues are needed...

Check the exhaust pressure at the tailpipe of your truck while engine is idling in park or, neutral by covering the tailpipe with your hand if you feel very little pressure your catalytic converter has failed (acts like a potato stuffed into the tailpipe)

Engine failure

When a catalytic converter is coming apart on the inside, it can restrict air flow and power, and it usually happens or gets worse when the vehicle has been running long enough to generate a lot of heat. Once it cools down, the symptoms can completely go away until you begin to drive it again. It's one possibility.

Was the alternator tested off the truck on a bench tester or on the truck with the engine running?
If bench tested check the fusable links at the starter switch and make sure one has not blown. It will stretch like a rubber band if it is blown.

Hi, It's me again, the 97 Crown Vic. I understand exactly what you're saying and will have someone look under my car ASAP. The one thing that I just don't get is.... even when it's not...

Your car has a temperature senser and as soon as the temperature is above a certain level the engine fails as a way of safety. its a safety control switch . First start the engine when it is cool and then check the performance of the fan. Is the generating enough air to cool the it is running check the temperature gauge i the car and see the level . It could be the fan not providing enough air cool the engine.

Hello, This is a tough problem to find when there are no Diagnostics. I suspect the problem is due to a term called "Heat Sink"

What this term means is that the engine compartment is getting hotter when the engine is just shut off, than when it is running. When the Tow truck moved your car, wind passed by while the Tow truck moved your vehicle. This helped cool it off regardless of when the car was towed.

A lot of times the heat shields on the Catalytic converters are rusted off. In a pursuit vehicle, they could have been knocked off. This means someone needs to look under your car to see what is missing.

The electric components like the Ignition module, coil, Relays, and fuel lines can be overheating.

Try opening your hood when you park your car at home and then go out shortly afterwards and try starting the car. If it helps, you need to find the component that is overheating and replace any missing heat shields.

I hope my solution is very helpful. You can also get FREE scans at Autozne, Advance, and Oreillys autoparts when you get a Code light.

Rough running engine at temp

0340 is camshaft position sensor and the other 0325 is the knock sensor. Chances are you need to replace the sensors and good to go.
