I have the 3.9. When I had starting problems turned out my Throttle Position Sensor was bad and it's the kind of thing you can change yourself.

I have a 1996 Dodge Van V8, 5.9L that starts and stops after a period of time. The crank sensor was replaced about 3 days ago. Now its doing the same thing. Also no indications on the dashboard like check engine light, seat belt sign, etc. What is the proper size and type of battery for this vehicle? What can be wrong? Is it the computer or Fuel pump? Thank you for your assistance concerning this matter.
