Check the fuel pressure when it is acting up . It may be your fuel pressure regulator.

98 and 99 intrepid was manufactured with weak fuel pumps causing them to vapor lock try pouring cool water on the fuel rails on the intake to calm vapored gas then try to start it. Even the temp gauge at half way mark is probably still low on coolant causing engine to be warmer than normal causing the vapor lock to fix this problem replace the fuel pump with a 2000 or newer intrepid fuel pump that carries a little higher psi to prevent vapor lock from reoccurring this pump is compatible with your 98 it will plug right in

2002 Chevy Tahoe sputters like it's not getting gas and stalls out while driving. usually starts back up after a few min. mostly only does this when it's hot out


Hello , does the vehical stall out after its been driving a while and the engine has reached operating temp? It may be what's called " vapor" lock. This is where the fuel is burned or evaporated in the fuel lines and the result is not enough fuel is routed to the injector system. Or you have a failing fuel psi regulator too. Thank you , Quinn

Check your fuel pressure thru out the rpm. If irratic or drops hard then its the fuel pump.

Stalling when engine temp reaches 160 degrees


Here are my theories

Idle Air Control valve (IAC) - allows a small amount of air to pass though throttle body at idle since the butterfly in the throttle body is closed at this time - if this doesn't open the vehicle will stall

Air Intake Temp Sensor - Helps correct air fuel ratio by measuring the temp of the air coming through the intake

Oxygen Sensor - Largest determinate of air/fuel ratio after the vehicle almost reaches operating temp which is approx 160 degrees

Coolant temp sensor - Largest determinate of the air/fuel ratio from cold up to the point when the oxygen sensor takes over

EGR Valve - 5.2 Liters are known for these failing, they redirect a small amount of exhaust gases back into the intake manifold for re-burning (emissions thing). Sometimes they get stuck closed and allow for too much exhaust gas back into the manifold. But usually this would cause very poor performance as well as shuddering and stalling

Use what you know about your condition and what these common fail items are and see if any of them sound like the problem
