Please help. I have a 1999 Intrepid w/ 3.2L and auto-stick and 112K miles. Misfired and stalled while passing on the highway. Waited 15 min, and restarted and drove home. Stalled on wife and would not restart after 30+ min. Restarted later that day and made it 100 feet before quitting again. Towed to dealer and OBD trouble codes for No. 1 cyl and for multi-cylinder misfires both set. Dealer wants to replace the fuel pump.
Had same problem - stall and restart at 42K miles. Different dealer replaced the plugs and wires and trouble did not re-occur until now.
I am having a similar problem. My car has yet to stall but it idles rough and has a long crank time. With me it's a leaky fuel injector and a bad exhaust valve spring. The dealerr wanted to tear down my engine to do a cylinder head, fuel injector, and fuek pump diagnostic. They wanted some $600 for it too. Lckily I've got a brother who is a technician to take careof it for me.

If ref to your earlier posting - trouble codes were set for No.1 cyl misfire and also for multi cyl misfire.
What is the IAC?
If fuel pump were bad, shouldn't P0181 TC set?
No need to apologize to me. Anyways... IAC = Idle Air Control Valve. The IAC basically controls the idle speed. The IAC is easy to change. Only 2 screws.
