To start any flooded engine is to allow full air into the engine while cranking. IE with a carby hold the acceleratot flat to the floor until the excess fuel is removed from the cylinders. (make sure that the choke is not stuck closed) Do not pump the pedal as this only makes the problem worse. With efi it should not flood but if you feel that it is flooding check for faulty injectors then again hold the pedal to the floor while cranking

SOURCE: 1992 Dodge Dakota won't start when Hot

it sounds like it might be a crankshaft position sensor (CKP). when it doesnt start try dumping some cold water on the sensor and see if it starts. I had the same problem with my 94 intrepid. Of course there are other things that might cause this problem but it is something to start with.

Have a 1999 dodge dakota sport 4 wheel drive with a 5.2 liter motor 158,000 miles my problem is every 3 or 4 days when i go to start it it in the morning will not start after about 5 or 6 times cranking...


a vehicles crank shaft sensor sends a signal to computer, as to tell what revolution the crank is on. you may not get a check engine light. check injectors for leaking in to cylinders, it can cause an excess amount of fuel in cylinder. this may be causeing the no starts and flooding smell. if it starts good warm then check the injectors for leaking. good-luck!! you may also have a bad coolant tempurature sensor. symtoms of a bad cts are--poor cold idle, stalling, slow idle speed, cold hesitation or stumble, poor fuel milage. ( will also ****** timing). its hard to say with out being there, so check out above. good- luck!!

Need to know the firing order


For all Dodge V8 truck engines, the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. For all Dodge V6 truck engines, the firing order is 1-6-5-4-3-2. For Dodge inline 6 cylinder engines, the firing order is For all Dodge 4 cylinder engines, the firing order is 1-3-4-2 All dodge distributors rotate clockwise.


look at your distributor cap while standing on the driver's side of the vehicle.
Start at number 1, which is labelled on the cap, and go
clockwise

Good Luck

97 Dakota, complete tune up has been done replaced fuel pump. If I can get it started runs fine. It acts like it is flooding, what controls fuel injectors?


Your computer. If it is getting flooded you might want to check a couple of things, any codes come up on the diagnostic test?

Still cannot start Dodge Dakota;


an engine with lots of miles on them will start using oil and begin to not want to start because the oil fouls the plugs, sometimes even if you clean them doesn't seem to help, but id pull a couple of spark plugs out and look to see if they are very black and oily. if the plugs are not working properly your engine will flood.
check your plugs, if dirty, wirer brush them very good then try again, hopefully it will start, if it almost starts but not quite, then you probably need to replace them.
this may not be your problem, but its where i would start.
hope this helps, let me know
would really appreciate your feedback, please
