Question about 2006 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Engine Intermittent Stalling and Missing/Loping

2006 Dakota SLT 4X4 40,000 miles. Within the last year, 5 different times engine abruptly(split second) quit while driving very slowly in parking lots. Also, several occassions while idling in parked traffic, engine began bogging down/missing/"loping" for a few seconds and would clear up. A couple times I tapped the gas pedal and it then went away also. No problems at higher driving/engine rpm speeds in town or on highway though.

    No check engine light has ever come on. I guess I really should take it to a shop to have all the sensors dignosed (I would assume??) because two of the five times it scared me pretty good because I had pulled slowly up to the edge of the parking lot and was just about ready to pull out onto a busy street when the engine abruptly quit. I had not taken it to a shop yet because I assumed that maybe I had gotten some bad fuel with a little water in it or something but this is five different times now with the engine abruptly quiting and numerous times where it lopes while sitting in traffic over a year now and using different fuel stations.

    I have one other really wierd problem also: only when vehicle is powered up and during the first 10-20 minutes of driving after it's been sitting shut down for a while (like overnight) you can hear a very audible rapid clicking sound from the gas pedal area and the clicking directly changes or correlates with pushing up/down on the gas pedal. The sound is coming from inside the vehicle and down by the driver's feet area somewhere under the steering column area. Only does it when the truck is turned on/powered up, which leads me to believe it's some electrical issue. It doesn't sound like a metallic clicking and can't be heard outside the vehicle and directly changes with the up/down pushing of the gas pedal and only during the first 10-20 minutes of initial driving after the vehicle had been sitting for a while..at least several hours.

    Is the check engine light on. The computer thinks the truck is doing something that it is not doing. It is trying to adjust the fuel air ratio to meet these conditions that are really not there.. A good example would be if the throttle sensor needs adjusted, the computer thinks you are giving it more gas than you are so it will adjust the pulse going to the injectors. I have an autotap and I have so much fun watching all of the sensors doing their thing.

Where is the fuel filter on a 1998 dodge dakota slt


Only the 4 cyl engine models used a serviceable filter in 1998.
Last year for the V6 and V8 models was 1994.
Most vehicles built after 2003 do not use a fuel filter.
If it had a filter it would be in the fuel line under the truck.

Tuneup 2006 tundra


A "tune up" is not rquired on this engine, the computer makes al necessary adjustments, there is nothing to adjust. Possibly spark plug replacement if it's a V-6 they should be replaced at 30,000 miles the V-8 engines use iridium plugs which last about 100,000 miles, the timing belt on both engines should be replaced at 90,000 miles, replace the air filter every 30,000 and change oil and filter at 4,000 miles. I would aslo recommend cleaning the carbon out of the throttle body at around 60,000 miles to prevent low idle and stalling.

Engine dying while running full speed and sometimes at idle. Appears to be an ignition problem. At highway speeds the truck will restart itself while in drive. At slower speeds it has to be put in neutral...


This is an electrical problem, I had this last winter where the car was restarting or the starter was not disengaging. The problem was with the starter. the contacts that meet the plunger in the starter were grooved severely and binded with the contacts.
I had to replace the contacts inside the starter.

Engine stalls when slowing down


I'm had a similar problem with my Caravan this past October. Ask your mechanic to check the fuel pump and oxygen sensor. There was a recall on Airtex fuel pumps in 24,000 2000 Caravans in 2006, so might want to see if it was one of the affected pumps and it can be replaced for free. Good luck!
