ENGINE DIES

1999 Chrysler LHS

Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Chrysler LHS 6 cyl Automatic

While driving, my car will die for no apparent reason. It doesnt sputter or anything, it just shuts down. Then it takes forever to start, but when it does start, it acts like nothings wrong.

Do below to determine whether it's fuel or spark issue.

Cranks but no start condition: Fuel and Spark: Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
