Engine Performance problem
1996 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive 120000 miles

replaced transmission, timing & serpetine belt, ignition switch, water pump and all belts. Mechanic is stumped drives great. For a few minutes then will stall and die. Hasn't been running long enough to be an over-heating problem but will just die and then not start for a awhile. They are going to try the distributer next. We are so far into this thing cash wise we are desperate.

But will just die and then not start for a awhile.

Next time it dies don't wait for it to cool down do below immediately.

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
