Same on going issue up in Canada with the intrepid ,, intermittent hard starts, intermittent stalling when stopped to long at light or stop sign,, cruise would not work intermittently,,sluggish on excelleration,, sputter also, changed crank sensor and cam shaft sensor with after market parts according to readings on check engine light, resolved issues temporarily. All signs returned , check engine read camshaft sensor again,, changed cam shaft sensor once again with aftermarket,, 8 months later same symptoms, progressively got worse would take up to 6 cranks of the key to start and it would run poorly!!! Read check engine light which had also become intermittent! Just said random misfire! Took a chance on all I have read on internet and purchased dealer camshaft sensor ,, installed and so far ever ting is running correctly , no engine light, cruise is working all is good,, I'll keep you up to date!

The car doesnt always want to start, check engine light on and had it checked to see what code it showed and it said cam shaft position sensor so i bought one and hopefully that fixes the problem.

Car began stuttering and then dies, at some points does not want to start on first attempt. Electrical works fine seems the engine will simply shut off.
