My 1988 Dodge Caravan stalls while it is in motion. Does not stall when in park or sitting idle. When it warms up it starts to sputter then cuts out. Usually if I pump the gas it will kick back on but not always. I have had a tune up, changed the coil, changed the fuel filter, sprayed on carborator cleaner and changed the oil. Also have checked the air filter. Could it possibly be a plugged cat. Converter? If you don't think so, where do I try next? Every time I take it to a garage they charge me ~$400 and I would prefer not to keep padding their pockets. Thanks

It is quite possible to be the cat. But I would like you to try something else first, you need to check fuel pressure, when this happens or about to happen, also a spark check is needed, that way we can just rule these out, as they are at most times the culprit
