Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 209k miles

When I took it to get it on a diagnostic. This was the code thrown, but they said I didn't need a new o2 sensor. I'll be driving down the road and then it will pull down. Like its losing power. Then recover and then just slowly stop running. If I let it sit for about 30-40 minutes, it will start back up roughly, but will then drive fine. Sometimes it will drive 50 miles. Other times it will only go 20. I've had the crank position sensor suggested by a few people, but its not throwing a specific code for that. Any suggestions? I've checked all my wiring, batt and alt are fine. Replaced an o2 sensor, ignition coil, fuel filter. And I am at a lose. PLEASE help!

When it doesn't start, have you checked to see if it is getting spark and fuel to the engine? One will be missing and I need to know which one it is.

Let me know.

It is getting a spark. I cannot say for 100%, but when I do try to start it it feels like it is out of gas. I would assume its not getting fuel. The vehicle seems to run better when there is over a half a tank in it. It still may act funny but doesn't shut down on me.
