Please put some punctuation in that huge sentence, otherwise it can be read at least three different way.

First of all, except for diesel trucks you will never solve a stalling problem on a Chrysler product by replacing the fuel filter. They often last the life of the car. GM fuel pumps typically fail while they're running and let you sit on the side of the road. Chrysler fuel pumps almost always fail to start up leaving you sitting in the driveway or parking lot. They rarely fail while you're driving. Stalling while driving is most commonly caused by a failing camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor. They often become heat-sensitive, then work again after they cool down for an hour. You may get a clue by checking the diagnostic fault codes.

Moisture under the oil cap is a sign of too much short-trip driving. Air is constantly circulating through the bottom of the engine to pull fumes out to burn. The moisture in that air condenses forming that water. It vaporizes and gets pulled out during long trips when the engine is fully warmed up.
