SOURCE: 95-97 dodge intrepid just shuts down after a while

My daughters car did the exact same thing. Lights and all. I replaced the pump twice and both relays (auto shut down and fuel pump relay). Very frustrating indeed.

The 1994 recall (see below) is right on! Right behind the engine block intake (the long aluminum block on top) is a tie rod that connects from the rack and pinion to the wheel. On top of the tie rod is a bundle of wires that are wrapped in cloth style tape, just resting on the rod. As the vehicle is driven, the steering rod will rub the wires (as the wheels are turned) thus causing a possible short. My daughters was. I used liquid tape, wrapped in tape and used zip ties to lift off the rod. I have driven it alot and have not had an incident yet!

FEB 08, 1994 | Recall ID# 12389 Hide Details
Recall Reason ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING
Recall Date FEB 08, 1994
Model Affected INTREPID
Potential Units Affected 110000

Recall Summary
THE RIGHT STEERING TIE ROD CAN RUB THROUGH THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WIRING HARNESS CAUSING A SHORT CIRCUIT WHICH RESULTS IN ELECTRICAL SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS INCLUDING ENGINE STALLING AND AN INOPERATIVE PARK/STARTER INTERLOCK SYSTEM.

Consequence
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM MALFUNCTION CAUSING STALLING WHILE IN MOTION OR AN INOPERATIVE PARK/STARTER INTERLOCK SYSTEM, WHICH ALLOWS ENGINE START WHILE THE TRANSMISSION IS NOT IN THE PARK POSITION, MAY RESULT IN AN ACCIDENT.

Remedy (see above)
INSTALL A REVISED WIRING HARNESS BRACKET AND A PLASTIC CONVOLUTED SLEEVE TO PROTECT THE TRANSMISSION WIRING HARNESS.

timing chains either go out or not go out, there is no such thing as an intermittent problem with a timing chain, what about the ignition module? it is sensitive to heat, and like the crank and cam sensors can cause your kind of problem. U did not mention fuel pressure either, electric fuel pumps can stop from heat when they get near the end of there service life (100,000), this is even more common if the fuel tank is run below 1/4 tank allot, this overheats the pump in the tank because it is not covered in gas, that is how it is cooled.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge intrepid wont start after i drive it, but will when it sits momentarily

Your exhaust system may be plugged, check your catalytic converter or muffler. At higher speeds exhaust gasses build up and prevent proper operation and will stall the vehicle until the built up pressure manages to escape enough to facilitate re-starting until once again youre shut down.
Your P.C.M. Power Train control Module (Brain) may also be the culprit as was the case with my 95 intrepid. After replacement of the module all system operations resumed as properly should. Theres two things that may well solve your problem. I hope so, good luck.
You might dare to disconnect your exhaust system above the converter (engine side) and drive your vehicle as usual, if its not too loud, preferably do this test drive outside city limits and see if your problem is resolved. If all seems well then the problem does indeed lie in your exhaust not flowing freely as it should.

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

vibrations can occur on front wheel drive vehicles from the CV Joint   it is similar to a universal joint   if the rubber boot around it ruptures and water gets in it can seize and cause vibrations that would become noticeable at certain speeds    I have also seen vehicles that have the main bearing in the engine have wear that would cause vibration in the engine itself

Hard starting after sitting awhile


My 98 Jimmy runs on synthetic oil and starts well after sitting in cold weather. If the weather is the problem, try checking that. If it is warm... sorry no ideas.

Check the ignition switch by pressing and holding the key hard into the ignition and try starting. If it does not start right away, problem is elsewhere.
