Question about 1992 Dodge Dakota
You need to follow a detailed troubleshooting procedure in a repair manual.
Check for spark plug fire during cranking after it dies.
No spark = ignition problem= computer will not fire injectors, and possibly cut out pump also.
Good spark = pump wonky, or power to pump system.
Also, other quick tests... when the thing dies, and then you crank,
1) Thump the fuel pump in the tank, if you can. A bad fuel pump might start up again.
2) Shoot some ether carb cleaner in the TB. If it only fires off the ether, the ignition system is no longer suspect.
