Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid
Usually Fuel Pump is the main Cause. But besides that, i always advise the Customers to check fuel pressure. Fuel injected cars are very fuel pressure sensitive. Fuel pressure is very important and must be within specifications! But if the pressure is low, it does not mean the pump is bad. A plugged fuel filter, a pinched line, and low voltage at the pump can contribute to low fuel pressure. All three must be check before replacing the pump! U can get a fuel pressure gauge at a local auto parts store for cheap

There are many things that may be causing this to happen. The only real way to properly diagnose this would be if you have your car checked for any stored or cleared codes. However, I believe that if you were to check the codes, I have a feeling that you may have an issue with an oxygen sensor or coolant temperature sensor. Prior to running the engine is in what they call open loop operation, that of which the engine controller ignores the readings from your oxygen sensors while they get to operating temperature to have accurate readings. After a few minutes of running the oxygen sensors become active and the engine uses the readings from these sensors which then may be flawed. And with the temp sensor, the sensor may not be adjusting to engine temperature, therefore giving false readings to the controller.
