There's two ways to have no fault codes. One is if the fuel pump quit. It is very rare for that to happen to a Chrysler pump while driving. They usually fail to start up when starting the engine, but once running, they almost always keep on running. GM pumps commonly fail while running.
The fuel pump and fuel pressure are not monitored so there won't be any codes set related to loss of fuel pressure.
The second concern is a failed crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor will cause a loss of spark, injector pulses, and fuel pump or pump relay. Codes for those sensors have a hard time setting when just cranking the engine. If one failed while driving, as yours did, THAT is when it's easier for a code to set.
I just saw your last reply. Forget about the fuel filter. Other than for diesel engines, you will never solve a running problem on a Chrysler product by replacing the filter. Also, they don't suddenly plug up and cause sudden stalling.
The next thing requires a scanner to view live data. Under the "Inputs and Outputs" menu, the cam and crank sensors are listed with a "No" or "Present" to indicate whether those signals are showing up.
To add to the confusion, on older vehicles both signals were required for the automatic shutdown, (ASD) relay to get turned on by the Engine Computer. That relay sends current to the ignition coil pack, injectors, alternator field, and fuel pump or pump relay. 2001 was right in the middle of when some engines would continue to run with one failed sensor, but once stopped, it would not restart. The clue there is the engine did not stall while driving.
With no fault codes, there really isn't much you can do without a scanner to see what the Engine Computer is seeing. A failing sensor can develop a weak signal that confuses the Engine Computer which might only fire one of the ignition coils of the three. That can make it appear spark is okay when it runs on starting fluid, but you can tell by the rough running and misfires that it should be considered as a "no spark" condition.
