It sounds like I am having the same problem. Our 98 T&C with 3.8L engine cuts out intermittantly. It happens most often under certain conditions.
1. Just after startup while idling
2. Upon deacceleration when reaching lower speeds and shifting into lowest gears
3. When the car is hot
However, it will also happen while driving. If it cuts out at highway speeds, the service engine light comes on, the transmission gets a good jerk, and often the car will restart upon attempting to accelerate i.E. Maintaining pressure on the accelerator pedal or stepping down on the accelerator pedal.
We've had the crankcase position sensor replaced but it did not fix the problem.
The problem isn't getting worse i.E. Occurring more frequently over time, but it is a nusiance and can happen as many as 4-5 times over my 25 miloe commute to work. Help!
