Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
YEAH... I TRIED ALL that TOO...
Hello Tim Carson,
Finally I got codes read... and it said the OXYGEN SENSORS were complaining... OBD... DTC
(on-board-diagnostic... DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES)
So... of course I changed the... OXYGEN SENSORS.
The "NEW" OXYGEN SENSORS complained just as well...
I have subsequently learned the "SENSORS" are
just doing their job...
In my case reporting on a collapsed catalytic converter.
(muffler is actually a MORE common blockage).
A little hunting around... like Auto-Zone ... Napa auto...
Pep-boys... O'Reilly Auto Parts... even MIDAS might
yield FREE READINGs... (check around).
Just remember to wear your best SALES RESISTANCE...
and look up you prices on ROCKAUTO...
before you go...

timing chains either go out or not go out, there is no such thing as an intermittent problem with a timing chain, what about the ignition module? it is sensitive to heat, and like the crank and cam sensors can cause your kind of problem. U did not mention fuel pressure either, electric fuel pumps can stop from heat when they get near the end of there service life (100,000), this is even more common if the fuel tank is run below 1/4 tank allot, this overheats the pump in the tank because it is not covered in gas, that is how it is cooled.

These trucks have a problem with the catalytic convertor blocking the exhaust causing a no start condition, the three things you need to start fuel, spark and air. Try disconnecting exhaust in front of cat.

Pull the coil wire out of center of distributor cap and lay it close to where you unpluged it from distributor cap, and turn over engine if coil is good you will see the spark jump. If no spark coil bad.
