I have a 2003 dodge intrepid 2.7 and it starts up fine but when you put in gear and try to give gas it dies out. It is like it is not getting to engine. i did run a little low on gas so I put in gas treatment did not work. I also had the fuel pump replaced and it still did not work.

well you narrowed it down to a fuel problem. not sure about your model, but most cars have a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail to reduce un needed pressures. that could possibly be bad. its cylinder in shape and has a vacuum hose connected to it. check the hose and that unit.
The crankshaft sensor is a common problem for your situation. When you have a problem, it won't start as the engine is hot. Open the hood, let it cool then you can start it again. Have a shop diagnose on the crank shaft sensor and replace it. Good luck.
Have fuel pressure tested. This may sound dumb but has been know to work. When engine dies & won't start, carry a piece of cardboard or an old blanket with you, and a big rubber hammer, and get down behind car, and give the gas tank a good wack with the rubber hammer, and try to start it. If it works, you can bet you need a fuel pump. Either way, a fuel pressure test will confirm my & now your suspicions.
Your fuel level sending unit is not working properly. The fuel pump and sending unit is one thing in the tank. It isn't too bad of a job to replace, it takes about 2 hours. Buy a manual for you car and it'll have step by step instructions on how to do it.
