    Because the scan shows no problem that does not mean there is no problem, how about an intake manifold leak?

92 Dakota, 3.9, automatic. Engine backfired, coughed, and died while driving. Acted as if it ran out of gas. Would not restart. Replaced fuel filter and electric fuel pump, still no start. Any ideas?

Make sure you have spark. Crank sensor is located at the back passenger side of the engine just infront of the the transmission bell housing, coil is on the side of the engine right next to the distributor, and also make sure that you do not have a broken ECU. I had one once that I fought an intermittent problem with dying for no apparent reason. Truck would usually fire right back up, but would die at unrelated intervals. Ended up being the center plug on the ECU. Took two replacement ECUs to get one that was good as the first replacement had the same issue of being broken on the center plug in.

On my 92 dakota with 3.9..cahanged ecu, coil pick up. crank snsr, cap, rotor, coil, ckd under fuse box, no corrotion ..just turns over, no fire

check that the cam shaft is turning . Back firing is a timing issue as it indicates ignition too early (inlet valve still open ) or valve timing out ( inlet valve opening too soon). Check that the immobiliser is operational.

Would the ignition switch cause 92 dodge dakota not to fire an no gas

It is possible and the check is to get a test light and check for power at the coils and fuel pump. Have the ignition on and in the engine run position for this test. Remember the fault could be in either a fusible link or in a crank position sensor .
