Is the 1993 dodge shadow 3.0 V-6 engine fuel pressure 15 psi? You commented that the early versions had the low fuel pressure on the 3.0 engine? But was coaxed to about 2000 to 2500 RPM and run up in RPMs from there for about three minutes. It still would hesitate from idle, but did not stall. Shut it of and it would not start. Had drove it less then two miles after adding 7.5 gals to almost empty tank.

Next time it refuses to start don't wait for it to make up its mind-do below immediately to determine if its fuel or spark problem

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 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, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-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,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
