do know that it stops firing when it shuts off? has the fuel pressure been checked? has the check engine light been on?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
No check engine light and the fuel pressure hasnt been checked. It seems that it isnt firing
Expert:  moparfl replied 8 years ago.
If it stops firing the most common thing that goes bad on the 2.0 engine is the cam sensor in the back of the head.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
We replaced the cam sensor and still it shuts off after driving for awhile.

You will need to have the system scaned to see if there are any codes stored and see if when it stops running if it stops firing or loses fuel pressure.
