Have a 97 VW Passat VR6, it died one day as the check engine light came on, it would run for a few minutes and then die, running shorter each time. Took it in to the shop and got the fuel pump replaced, which seemed to solve the problem. Car ran fine for the mechanic, and started up fine when I went to take it home. But 2 hours after getting it home, the engine turns over but just won't start at all. Any ideas? (fuel filter & fuel pump are new)

1999 Chrysler 300M, Dies on deceleration and at idle when warm. I can some time see the tach go to 0 rpm, with out the car actually dying I have had may suggestions, from EGR, throttle Body, fuel injectors, fuel pump, cam & crank sensors and more, I really would not prefere to just start replacing parts untill I find a solution.
