Thank you for your question. This is very common and there are multible things that could cause this symptom. Usually it is caused by a faulty crankshaft position sensor. But before I say that is your problem let me ask you a few questions. Does the engine just shut off while driving at highway speeds? How long does it take to start back up? Have you ever had the computer scanned for trouble codes?

Reply to HITECH526's Post: the car shuts off when driving around town, they tested the car and said it was the computer sensor, I am lost on this.I will get one put on, the car does not run hot, or no light on dash come on.
Dodge Mechanic: HITECH526, technician replied 9 years ago
When you say the term computer sensor, I assume you are talking about the On board diagnostic computer. That could be the problem but there has to be some reason the mechanic has come to that concusion. Have they told you anything about why they say it is bad?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
