What could be causing my 1999 Dodge Durango to stall while driving?

Asked by Apr 12, 2015 at 09:32 PM about the 1999 Dodge Durango

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It doesn't matter where I am, if I am on gravel or tar, or if going fast or slow. It randomly shuts off everything when I am driving and after sitting on the side of the road for 5-10 minutes it starts back up. The crank shaft has been replaced along with the fuel pump sensor. Neither one fixed the issue. I have been reading up on this and it seems there is quite a few people with the same problem but haven't been able to figure out the issue. Does anyone know what is going on? Please help! Thanks :)

You must be losing fuel pressure, fuel delivery, secondary spark, or primary voltage. ....The evidence starts for each way, fuel or spark, by connecting test equipment, not installing guess parts. When you recreate the condition, it dies, then cranks but wont start, does it have spark at the spark plug ? Does it still have fuel pressure? If you lose spark, is the secondary receiving power from the primary? and back track through the schematic and the involved parts to the battery. If you lose fuel, it can be how the injectors get signal, even if pressure is readable, it has to get delivered. Basics first. ....If it's too much to think about, research, and test ? Use your guess money for diagnostic tests by someone with experience......Review your records and see if somethings getting neglected...........You can find people with issues, sure, but that doesnt mean you verified them on your unit. That is where you are sitting with the tests. Attaching the gauges, using the code reader, running tests with a DVOM meter, and using testers that verify conditions. The service bulletins can be looked up in an automotive database, You can question your dealership service advisors for clues. Tell them the year and month, the vin, the engine and see if they hear this one all the time? Or whether you need test results.
