2003 T&C approx. 200k miles just started with issues will start right up will sit there and
idle til its warm then stops almost like you turned the key off it restarts right away idles
great for about 30 seconds then shuts down you can repeat a half dozen times and it
shuts down in 30 seconds every time any thoughts would be helpful

1 Answer


could be a bad crank sensor ...// or even a dirty throttle body ....// try cleaning the throttle body first and see if that helps ...//if that doesn't work try wiggling on the crank sensor wires when its cold to see if you can get it to stall
