Find your firewall electrical junction block (where all the wires enter the cabin on the passenger side) and with a zip tie pull up the wire bundle so it does not ride on the upper tie rods and, fasten the zip tie to anything that is solid in the engine compartment and, let me know what happens

2000 dodge intrepid stalls out while driving and sitting in red light why

Dodge 2000 Intrepid stalling on Traffic Light - This is caused by either wrong amount of Fuel or Air mixing in Idle condition. Please check fuel pressure at Idle which should be at least 38 psi and should go up when you press the accelerator. If fuel pressure is okay then Clean out the Throttle body carefully. This should solve the problem if no Check engine light is on. If Check engine light is on then please confirm and give me the codes present in On Board Diagnostic port (Auto Zone or Advance Auto will read the codes free for you) and we will go from there.

My 1998 Dodge Intrepid is starting & then stalling only after a few seconds. The engine light came on, & the code was P1391. Any ideas?

That code is indicating an intermittant crank shaft or cam shaft sensor fault. Because the engine is starting then stalling, check to see if you have spark after the stall. If spark is still present, you are probobley looking at a cam sensor circuit issue. The cam sensor controls the fuel injector pulse. If the cam sensor fails on a chrysler product, the fuel injectors will not function.

It appears to be idling low in drive, around 5000 RPM and stalls some times.It is the 3.2 Engine and runs fine when accelerating, but will stall some times when coasting or at a light. It does not seem to...

Well I would check the airfilter maybe its not getting enough air.If that doesn't work try unhooking the negative or positive cable from the battery.Leave unhooked for about 5 minutes and see if that helps sometimes that will reset the computer.

Have fuel pressure tested. This may sound dumb but has been know to work. When engine dies & won't start, carry a piece of cardboard or an old blanket with you, and a big rubber hammer, and get down behind car, and give the gas tank a good wack with the rubber hammer, and try to start it. If it works, you can bet you need a fuel pump. Either way, a fuel pressure test will confirm my & now your suspicions.
