Things like this has plagued mechanics since 1985 when the dist and carb disapeared. If you can get it to act up while you have the machine hooked up, you can find the problem. Have the mechanics check ALL OF THE GROUNDS on the engine. I had this problem for weeks and could never get it to do it while a mech. was present. Finally one mechanic diagnosed the problem as a crankshaft sensor. This solved the problem.

I owned a 97 sebring with the 2.5L v6 and it didnt have a mass air flow sensor. There is a lot of vaccum system on that motor so check your vaccum hoses for any leaks. Maybe your pcv valve has gone bad and is running oil into your vaccum system? one pinhole vaccum leak on that car can cause it to run rough or stall out.
