Why wont my 98 Dodge Dekota Sport stay running?


the crank sensor can give these symptoms and some vehicle makes OBD do not capture all the fault codes , i would try a replacement crank sensor they are not expensive and are usually very easy to replace , go to a Dodge dealer as there may be an up graded sensor because of this very reason , i.e Renault included a longer wiring connection as this was the cause with there vehicle's , i know you dont need to know that but just trying to illustrate that there some known faults with many vehicle makes so a main dealer will know of them

2001 Dakota wont start. Died at a red light and would not start back up. Check for trouble codes but had none.


You don't say what size engine you have, but the two most likely candidates for imminent failure would be the crankshaft sensor or the fuel pump. If you have fuel pressure at the rail, then I'd replace the crank sensor fist, as they are common failure items.

sounds like you blew your head gasket and your spark is getting to wet to fire. try a compression test to see if your head gasket is still good.

Have you checked base fuel pressure with a gauge ?

05 dodge ram 2wd 5.7 hemi codes p-0129,p-0339


p-0129 obd2 code means barometric pressure is out of range p-0339 says crankshaft position (ckp) sensor is intermittent.. go to auto zone .com and type in your vechile info and then look for a ckp sensor buy and replace.your pressure is off because of a bad sensor. disconect the neg on your battery, add new sensor, replace neg terminal back on battery.. then erase the two codes with a obd 2 code reader after installing new sensor. if you dont have a code reader pick one up at auto zone as well. its the best tool u can have.. no one will rip you off at the shop when you walk in their knowing what the problem is.. and you cant put a price on knowlage.. oh wait you can $ 49.99

Wont start


Well I was originally thinking maybe the mega-fuse in the engine compartment since you have so many things not working.  Then considered the computer.  You may want to consider checking these out.
I went to MSN auto for your vehicle and under reliability, you can see that one of the engine problems is the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) and it notes that failure of the sensor will keep the vehicle from starting.  This shouldn't affect your gauges, but you might have the sensor checked out.  Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 dodge durango, I have a code P0320.


above me is right it's a faulty crankshaft position sensor. Hard to get this out so it may be cheap enough to have them change it at the shop. Only a $32 part

2000 Dakota 3.9 V6 wont start just cranks, has plenty of fuel


I agree that it's probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS).  Without the pulse from this sensor, you vehicle will never start.  Sometimes water from a leaking water pump will run down onto this sensor and cause it to fail.  
You can go to MSN Auto for your vehicle and under the "Reliability" tab  you will see the same thing regarding the CPS (listed under Engine issues).
