1997 Dodge Intrepid shutting off while driving

The engine just dies. I pull over to the side of the road and it usually fires right up. Recently though, I've had to wait a few minutes then it fires up. The engine turns over fin, but it is like there is no gas.

Any suggestions?

    My 1997 Dodge Intrepid, 2.7L, also just stalls in the middle of driving ! (Can be very dangerous while driving with no shoulder, or on highway !

    It starts after about 15 minutes ; it tries rto crank over but it's like there's no gas into engine. Have changed most semsors and told fuel pump ok. My thought is maybe it's the fuel filter but I was told gas tank must be taken off & dealer did not want to do.; dealer said it's only a screen and it's not that. Car only has approx. 77K. Any advice ?

I had the exact same problem and it turned out to be the crank shaft positioning sensor whatever that is. took three mechanics to figure it out since it was an on again off again problem.

You don't have to drop the fuel tank to get to the fuel pump in these cars. You go through the trunk, take out the carpet and at the back of the trunk there will be 4 screws, it's right under there. Very easy to get to.

Have someone check your fuel pump, as well as your air/gas mixture. My car was doing this and it was my fuel pump going out.

What ould make a 2004 dodge intrepid shut down while driving down the road and it starts back up right away after I get pulled over and put it in park and start it again


Dodge and Chrysler products have a history of intermittently faulty crankshaft sensors after a period of time. This will cause your issue. It may also not even set a Check Engine code since it comes and then goes away immediately. If you check for engine codes and don't find any, and if this problem persists or becomes more frequent, the crank sensor is a good candidate for replacement. Also, as they act up more and more, you might find that it takes longer for you to be able to start back up and move again - this is another characteristic of the problem. They are usually easy to access and not extremely expensive.

1991 Cadillac DeVille (has 110,000 miles on it) suddenly dies while driving. Starts and idles fine, but shuts off after driving only 1-2 blocks. What's wrong and how do we fix it?


There are many things that can contribute to this problem. It sounds like it may be ignition related. Possibly an ignition control module or ignition coil. The check engine light coming on while driving is the key to finding the problem. The light comes on when the computer finds a problem and will then store it in its memory. Have the codes checked for what the computer has found to be at fault and with a little diagnostics, should lead you to the problem

My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

2007 chevy 2500 died while driving down the road. Lights/radio still work


The battery light was on because the engine stopped running. The alternator was not charging the battery.
On a model that new, if the engine did overheat the computer could kill it. A stuck thermostat comes to mind. But your temp gauge should have been on the hot side.
Its also possible something locked up and is preventing the engine from cranking, such as the water pump or alternator. You may need to remove the belt to verify. If the belt is slipping it would not power the water pump to keep the engine cool.

Have f350 04. About a month ago while driving in town, it cut out blew black smoke, pulled over to side of road waited a few minutes all was well. Now at any given time it will cut out, not idle up or die....


Could be a problem with your high pressure oil system that fires the injectors. As your oil heats up it gets thinner and less oil pressure is available to fire the injectors. Black smoke is a sign of over fueling. Is it chipped? If so remove the programmer and see if the problem goes away.

1997 dodge intrepid shut off while driving down the road acts like it wants to start but wont


It's common for them to have a bad crank shaft sensor. It is located half way up the bell housing on the passenger side. It takes a 13/32 socket and a 6in extension. Remove the air intake tube and the coil pack ( same socket ) and you can get to it from the top. It just pulls out after you take out the one bolt on the bottom. The part is about $40. Hope this helps.
