Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

97 dodge dakota crank sensor bad????

The truck acted like it ran out of gas,I put some in it( just in case the guage was wrong). I could get it to run by dumping it directly into the intake.I had a crank sensor go out on me once before and it sure is acting like that again.The engine didn't code so I can't tell for sure if that is the problem.I put a ohm meter across the red and black and it shows open. How can I confirm that the sensor is bad?I don't want to just throw parts at this.

    The fuel rail should have presure when the key is on, I checked it and I had nothing.I wasn't sure if the crank sensor controled the fuel system.That's why I started to focus on the sensor.Shouldn't the fuel pump have been acting up prior to full failure?

    I thought I checked all the relays,I will double check.

    Thanks!

    Turns out greasynail1 was right. I had no fuel presure and checked voltage to the fuel pump.Fuel pump was bad.Replaced and back on the road! Thanks

Sounds like a fuel issue,not a crank sensor.Check the fuel pressure ...Good Luck...

Keep getting code p1391


You may need a shop manual for this one.
Code 1391 means the crank sensor or cam sensor signal is not steady or dead at times.
The distributor acts as the cam sensor, so it could be that or the crank sensor, or a problem with the wiring harness.

There is a idle control valve that may need replacement, This is a 50 dollar part and easy to install. Before that try running 5 in 1 STP gas additive first. If you have been putting in cheap gas this might be part of the issue. Chevron gas only for a while.

How can i tell if my crank shaft sensor is bad?


If the crank sensor fails it will probably stop the engine. I have known a diesel engine continue running with a failed crank sensor but it was virtually undriveable and sounded really rough.

Pumping the loud pedal isn't likely to be very helpful whatever is wrong. Pedal pumping is for older cars with a carburettor that isn't in good order.

The best help will be from a guy with a scanner...

2000 dodge dakota ran out of gas. after filling won't crank


I suspect your fuel filter is clogged. This often happens after you run out of gas because your engine sucks up all the gas in the bottom of the tank where dirt and debris have been collecting for years. I recommend changing your fuel filter and if that doesn't fix your problem, try adding some fuel injector cleaner to your gas.
