Have you checked the fuel filter most people will forget to get the filter changed and it will get plugged eventually and starve the engine of fuel.the 2 easiest things to start checking are fuel if lots of fuel check spark.

95 dakota, randomly dies, then sometimes wont start. Sometimes might start right after it dies. Dies while driving in gear going down the road. It has spark, its a v8 5.2?


This is a common issue with Dakotas of all engine sizes. I have a 99 Dakota and it did the same thing. The usual culprit is the crankshaft position sensor. They are relatively cheap (as far as parts go), and are easy to replace. I would try that first. The interesting thing about them failing is that they rarely set an Engine Failure Code.

Try disconnecting battery for about 20 min then reconnect. Then turn the key to the on position but do not start it for about 15 seconds, then turn the key off, then try starting it. This should reset the computer.

Car dies randomly for no reason.


My car use to do the same thing. I would be driving down the road and it would die. after 15 min. or so the car would start. I replaced the crank sensor and this solved my problem.

95 civic wont start


An engine needs 3 things to run: Fuel, compression, ignition.

Maybe the timing belt went out. Take off the dist cap and see if the rotor turns as you crank the engine.

Next run a compression test on all the cylinders.
