My 1999 Intrepid, 2.7 also, had a similar episode, once. Going up Vail Pass.
After sitting about an hour, it started and didn't have another episode
until months later. Engine would die when I got down to half a tank of fuel.
Turned out to be the fuel module. Would not hold pressure. Never figured out
why it was always a problem at half a tank. New module, no more problem. May
or may not be the cause of your problem.
