Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. When the engine stalls, does it have to sit for a few minutes before it starts right back up or can you start it immediately after it stalls out?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
after sitting two or three minutes it will start back up, we also checked the fuel pressure
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, thank you for that information. Does the engine have spark and fuel pressure when it does not start?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
we haven't had test tools when it dies on the side of the road so I don't know
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, I will tell you my experience on these vehicles. Usually this condition is caused by a fuel pump, camshaft position sensor and or crankshaft position sensor. The fuel pump and these two sensors can simply heat up and stop working for bit until they coola back down causing this stalling condition (and no start for a few minutes) like you are describing. Your first step would be to verify spark when this happens. You could even use a screw driver to check for spark. If there is no spark, I would suspect a bad cam or crank sensor. If there is spark but no fuel, I would suspect a bad fuel pump.
