Ignition control module location

Hi
We have a 1995 Dodge 1500 6 cylinder van. It is stalling at highway speeds. Then it will start after a few minutes. Then run for 15 or 20 minutes and quit again. This is only at highway speeds. Running 45-50 no problem. Can you tell me where the ignition control module is loacted and what it looks like or is it part of the computer ? Also any ideas of what is wrong would be welcome. We had a shop check it out today and they conld not find anything wrong.
Thanks in advance Rod

That is part of the PCM. Since loading of the engine is a factor then it sounds like the fuel filter is clogging up. Sad part is that the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump module which is replaced as an assembly.

Next time it quits you might pull the coil wire and see (be very careful) and see if it sparks when turning over the engine. If so then the problem is fuel delivery.

My friend bought a new fuel pump. He is waiting to change it until he runs some gas out to make it lighter.
Thanks for all the help
