2000 Plymouth Voyager Repair Question
This is typical of a camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor failing when it gets warm. Have you checked for diagnostic fault codes?
I have had it hooked up to a computer at oreillys when it was NOT starting and it read no codes at all. However when I took the camshaft sensor off it still ran and the check engine light came on... when I replaced it light went off... as of now it runs about 2-3 mins and shuts down and doesnt come back on for couple days. Had to have it pulled up the hill today as it started went 3 foot then died. Going for crankshaft sensor tomorrow was thinking same myself. Will let you know if it worked-- Thanks

I'd sure feel better if there was a related code in memory, but if you found no spark and the injectors weren't firing, that suggests the automatic shutdown (ASD) relay turned off. The Engine Computer would do that if pulses were missing from those sensors. Older vehicles would stall if you unplugged the cam sensor. It's nice to know the newer ones can run without it, although it may be needed for starting. GM had a similar problem where the engine would continue to run when the cam sensor failed while driving, but once stopped, the engine either wouldn't restart, or had a 33 percent chance of firing the wrong cylinders, depending on the engine and year.
It was the crankshaft postion sensor... too bad I bought a new fuel pump to rule out on the way lol anyways running great again over 500 miles on it. 80 dollar part with lifetime warranty 5 minutes to replace.
