    I just changed the clutch on my 1995 dodge dakota 2wd. Now the truck wont start. It was a perfect starting machine up to this point. Is there a shut off switch. No fuel no spark. truck turns over but no spark

Chek pick up coil in distibutor for a/c signal with a voltmeter . you should have voltage signal when cranking . this is very common problem for dodge.if no signal output replace distributor . if o.k. check the main shot off relay . check for 12 v at ignition coil while cranking if no 12v change relay.good luck

    shut off relay is the relay that controls the ingectors, coil ,and PCM power . it is on driver side inner fender under hood. but first use a test light and check to see if you have power to coil with ignition switch on.thank you.

1997 Dodge Dakota Sport, V6. Truck died while driving and won't start.


You need to know if it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel pressure before you start replacing parts.
It could be as simple as the ASD relay.

1997 dodge dakota want start in morng finly get it to crank ran fine till shut it off now next morning want start


First check to see if you have spark at the sparkplug then if you have spark check your fuel pressure it should be between 44-54 psi with key on engine off also ,check fuel filter for restriction.If pressure is below 39 psi then replace fuel pump.But if you don't have spark at the plug then there is a ignition problem.
