96 Town & Country intermittently stalls/dies while driving.
PCM appears to be reset with no failure codes and no Check Engine light. Engine will restart immediately & run fine otherwise. One Technician suggest that could possibly be the Knock sensor. Any ideas about this?
Does it die/stall mainly when stopping or slowing down? If so I would suspect the idle air control valve(faulty or dirty), throttle position sensor (faulty) or egr valve ( dirty-stuck open-faulty)
Problem solved for me! Thanks to all for the input on this issue, it was invaluable to me. 2001 Chrysler T&C 3.8L Problem- engine shuts off suddenly- no sputtering, stalling etc, just like key got turned off- at entirely random times while driving, no discern-able pattern although typically within 500 mi of last issue Solution- replaced PCM, a very easy fix for even a basic DIY, can be R&R'd without removing battery, there is a hidden bolt behind headlight to be aware of, easy to get to if you take out three screws that hold the headlight in. Part is $225 at Carcomputerexchange.com Cheaper than than having it reflashed or replaced at dealer. Before this I tried in order: Checked battery and connections Replaced EGR valve, very easy to replace though I don't see how this could cause this issue. About $70 for part Replaced crankshaft sensor, cheap but a little harder to replace. This could cause this issue, but it should show a P code if so. About $25 for part. Note there are two versions for this year, get the correct one. If the PCM hadn't fixed it, my next steps were to get the wiring harness checked, then dash module, though I would likely have brought it into mechanic for that. Coincidentally had the ignition coil fail during this time, again easy to replace, but I don' t think it was related.
