Do you know the code. Probably none, if that is so, it may be an engine run sensor. The crank or cam sensor can sometimes shut off, and not throw a code.
I'll help you. What specific code showed up to cause the fellows to install a pump and filter? Which engine, 3.3? When this happens and there is no code the scan may not be picking it up. It is a question of how expensive or when the scanned code appears. Your moneys no good for me. Just your help is my pay. These men are the ones you thank who created the site. We get off on helping people, not money out here in Dodge world. Ok Sir

You are feeling the problems that occur when a van like yours does this, if you need any advice about anything just let me know. You cannot replace a fuel pump, and expect to have good fuel pressure. Maybe sometimes, but not a 'Dodge'. Its plastic comes apart and gets swtuck in the filter, this can cause the new pump to fail.
