'96 Dodge Gr. Caravan, 3.3 with air

My van is intermittently quitting. Engine just shuts down. This has been a problem for several months buty while vacationing in June had two codes appear. Replaced front oxy sensor and the EGR according to diagnostic readout. No error codes now or when she dies. Van has 108,000 and other than the problem above, I've changed the water pump and starter. That's it. Ideas on a fix? Similar events?
Thanks,
Ken

Ken,

When it dies, does it start right back up or do you have to wait awhile before it will start?

Next time it happens, you need to determine if it has spark to the plugs or not.

I agree. Also check the posts and links I have below in my signature file.


Also, have the codes been cleared from the computer with a scanner?

Van starts right back up. No hesitation. I have installed plugs, wires etc., but it's really erratic and tough to troubleshoot.

Computer codes have been cleared by scanner.

Without more diagnostics, this is just a shot in the dark, but...many times when a chrysler product does this, it is either the ASD relay or crankshaft position sensor.

Thanks for the response. I know what the crank sensor is and I'm not chasing that one down. I'd rather live with intermittent stopping. However, I don't know what the ASD is. Never heard the acronym.

Must be familiar with these acronyms and issues if you want to track it down .

ASD=Auto Shut Down...usually has to do with the fuel pump circuit on many Chryslers.

I suggest you browse through autolibrary.org as I have it bookmarked below if you want to know more.
