Sounds like a fuel problem. when the car is "cold" the computer richens the fuel mixture just like a choke did on old carburetor engines. when the engine warms it leans the mixture. it sounds like your car is running lean. could be as simple as a restricted fuel filter, or even a small vacuum (air) leak. this car also has a mass air flow device. a box about half the size of a pack of cigarettes located in the air supply tube between the air filter and throttle assembly. if the car dies or changes how it runs when you tap on it, it is probably bad.

1. Automatic choke may need to be replaced.
2. EGR valve may need to be replaced.
3. Check vacuum lines on engine and transmission

Hey Dennis,, DON"T BECOME A PARTS REPLACER..(some people who "call themselves mechanic's" are just that!),.. .take this Dodge to a qualified professional... talk to them..
You say warm... do you mean full running temp?? .if so, you may be experiencing a vapor lock,, fuel "boils" when the engine is hot.. when it cools its no longer hot enough to cause this..(S.W.A.G.)

Check out your cold start choke. It is designed to cause your fuel mixture to run "rich" until it warms up. It is basically a heat sensitive coil that reacts to heat from the exhaust manifold.
