Check your 02 sensors and be sure that the air filter is clean. You also may be having trouble with the fuel pressure regulator.

SOURCE: 98 dakota 3.9. runs then

P0351 - Ignition Coil A Primary circuit fault.

Could be from Worn Out Plugs to Plug Wires. Also can be dirty injectors.

Just do a routine maintenance, Oil, Fuel and Air Filters, Oil change, new plugs and wires and add a bottle of Techron on a full tank of gas. If none has been done. Perhaps needs some maintenance.

Also, I suggest check your fuel pressure, if it is low you can do some simple checks to see why. Pinch the return line. If the pressure raises to at least the correct fuel rail pressure, then the regulator is the problem. if it does not then you should check for a clogged fuel filter. If pressure is still low you probably have a weak pump, low voltage to the pump, or a restricted fuel supply line.

I think yours has an ignition module which can be checked at parts store. Could also be bad coil. If you must have wiring diagram, get shop manual.

I have a 1989 dodge dakota truck with a 3.9L. there is no fire going to the coil. i have replaced the module and the coil. still won't start. I get code 34 please help me to diagnose this problem. thanks

Replace the Automatic Shutdown Relay. If that doesn't fix the problem, the other place I would look, would be the Hall Effect Switch inside the distributor. You should be able to change this part without removing the distributor. If the computer doesn't get a signal from the Hall Effect, it will shut down the ASD, which supplies power to the coil and the fuel pump.

I have 1998 dakota cranks but no start no spark how do I check?

Do you hear the fuel pump when you cycle the key?
If not, then Check the ASD - auto shut down relay ,under hood, drivers side,distribution box
Only got computer,crank sensor,and coil
The distributor hall effect sensor, is for the injector timing,do not move the dist.,

Is the ignition switch and neutral switch okey

If you got no wiring diagrams or experience with a volt meter,your in a tough spot.

I have no spark from the coil changed crank sensor and checked to see if the distributor sitll turned and it did when rolled over

try changing the hall effect sensor. this is the round plastic part under the distributor rotor with about a six inch wire coming out of it with a three prong plug. If you go to the parts store and they are having trouble looking it up have them look under the name pick up coil. Have you checked the ignition coil?

Engine quits after 3 or 4 miles of driving

I would think either a bad coil, or ignition module,or fuel pump. Sometimes the big relays for these system can cause this symptom so rotate the important ones in the engine compartment. Also if yours has an ASD relay this is your main power one.

96 Dodge Dakota .....NO SPARK

you should have power on one terminal of the coil connector when cranking engine,i prefer using a test light..put the lead of your test light on battery positive and check other coil connector should flash/pulse..if it is,you need an ignition coil..if not,you may have an engine controller problem..also check harness near controller and fuseblock for corroded wires..controller may not be powered up properly

Upstream, as in ahead of the converter, back toward engine. Start at converter and work your way back, should be on exhaust pipe or even on manifold.
