1995 Dodge Ram B250 conversion van 3.9 liter shuts off at random

Asked by Oct 10, 2016 at 05:24 PM about the 1995 Dodge Ram Van 3 Dr 2500 Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In the mornings I will be driving about 10 minutes, van shuts off and I habe to
pull over, put in park turn the key off.  I have to put it in neutral to start
everything I start it.  Then I start it up and it will go another 10 or 15 minutes or
not at all and it will just die when I come to a stop at a red light. I corrected once
by putting it neutral and the  into drive again and it was fine.  Replaced ignition
switch, ignition cylinder, automatic shut off relays.  It doesn't sputter or act like
it is running out of gas or anything just dies whenever it feels like it.  ECM and
fuse was replaced 7 years ago.  Fuel pump was replaced about 7 years ago as
well.  We are confused as to what is happening.  I don't know if the auto
overdrive is stuck.  Repairs hop says I have a worn bushing that makes me have
to start it in neutral everytimeI start it, but I donot think that is it either.  When it
first started doing this, we replaced plugs, wires, distributor, ignition coil. ANY
IDEAS?  Not throwing codes...check engine not on....going crazy
