My Dodge was running rough and was due for cap, rotor, wires, plugs. I replaced them and gapped the plugs appropriately as well as replaced the wires one at a time to make sure they went back in the right place. It starts right up and runs nice and smooth, but around 45 seconds after starting, it sputters for half a second then shuts down. It will start right back up but does the same thing over and over. Any ideas?

I'd check for applicable trouble codes, see if anything shows up. Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Check the cam and crank sensors. Some of the national brand autostores used to loan out a fuel pressure gage. For the codes, you might be able to use an obd2 code reader, just make sure it will work with your vehicle, read the material. Without something to point us in the right direction, all I can do is hunt and peck.
