You need to check the crankshaft position sensor located on the top of the intake near the rear of the back side of the altenator the wire is usually attached to the alternator bracket my 1997 grand caravan 3.3 did the same thing good luck

AnswerIt sounds as if you have an ignition module going out, or a fuel pump/relay failing.

This is very dangerous as the vehicle could stall out at any moment leading up to an accident. You should'nt drive this thing until the problem is fixed.

Also be sure the fuel filter isn't plugged up, replace it.

The recall notice says that the car will be able to restart but will continue to intermittently shut off without warning.
