Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo
Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair
Dodge 2000 Intrepid stalling on Traffic Light - This is caused by either wrong amount of Fuel or Air mixing in Idle condition. Please check fuel pressure at Idle which should be at least 38 psi and should go up when you press the accelerator. If fuel pressure is okay then Clean out the Throttle body carefully. This should solve the problem if no Check engine light is on. If Check engine light is on then please confirm and give me the codes present in On Board Diagnostic port (Auto Zone or Advance Auto will read the codes free for you) and we will go from there.
This is most likely a faulty Throttle position sensor or MAF sensor. The problem is you can get the codes read if the vehicle won't make it to a shop that will read the code for you. Auto Zone will loan you a scanner tool but unless you can predict when that check engine light is going to come on it will be hit and miss until you can get the code. You can't really fix the problem correctly until you can identify which sensor is causing the fault. Next time you are on the road, as soon as that check engine light comes on if you are close to Auto Zone or Advance Auto or O'Reiley Auto parts store stop there and ask them to connect the code reader to the vehicle and tell you what the code is and what part it effects. They do this for free in most states.
That is your "Check Engine Light" / "Service Engine Light". It means the Computer (ECM / PCM / ECU, it goes by many names) has detected a problem with one or more parts on the engine or transmission.
The easiest way to find out, is to stop by an auto parts store (like Advance Auto, Auto Zone, etc) and have them hook up a Scan Tool to read the Trouble Codes from the ECM. They do that for free. Most if not all garages/mechanics also have the necessary Scan Tool as well, but most of those will charge you just to read the codes.
The check engine light will not go out on its own until usually after 20 or so starts.You need to back to Auto zone and have them hook up the analyzer again and clear the codes (they will do this for free). If the problem was your EGR valve, the light will then go out.
Not unless you want to spend a lot of money to replacements. Stop at one of the major auto parts stores like auto zone or advance auto and ask them to read the stored codes and they can tell you what it means and then you have the option of buying a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle and the part so you can fix the problem yourself.
go to an auto parts store that comes out an checks your code for free get a print out of the fault code and also a list of possible trouble shooting tips .advanced auto,auto zone ,etc, etc.
you need that code to narrow down your problem
if your engine is running different then before the check light came on. have your computer system checked for error codes. start there. or your owners manual. or a service manual at your local auto store.
Your friend may be right, if not the egr, I suspect another sensor. To properly diagnose this, you could see if you have diagnostic codes stored. This can be done as a free courtesy at most national parts chains such as Advance or Auto Zone. They will use an OBD II reader and interpret the codes for you. They can show you the location of the sensors and sell you any that are not working properly. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
