This sounds like a bad (probably cracked) ignition coil.

First, the coil gets hot when operating, and this is normal.

If it is cracked, it gets hot to the point where its resistance gets so much higher that it cannot provide enough voltage for spark.

When it cools back down it starts working fine again.

SOURCE: 1995 Dodge Dakota Pick up

go to Didgeforums.com.

I had a similiar problem, found the solution there. It was the wiring harnes on the drivers side under the hood, just above the wheel well. there are a cluster of wires in a bundle. I unpacked the bundle carefuly and sure enough the were two or three wires all coroded, had wite powder from corosion. repaired the connections and bingo. I posted details at dodgeforums.com. browse around there. I posted pictures as well. this is a common problem.

SOURCE: 98 Dodge Dakota "pick up coil" cam position sensor repeat failure

Honestly? Cruddy parts.

I have a Dodge Stratus....97....same thing here. Unfortunately, shoddy parts, even from the dealership. I think the best thing is to keep a fresh one on hand. I know that the wiring is garbage too due to how the harness curls up to the sensor. Not much to tell you on this one.

SOURCE: how to test a crankshaft on a 1993 Dodge Dakota

check your catalytic converter for clogged up.
disconnect the exhaust pipe before the cat and run the engine to see if it still cut off.
if it run better, then that's the problem

Engine stalls on highway starts after 15 min


Sounds like the same problem I have been having with my 2002 Sedona for
the past 6 or 8 months. It would run OK for several days, weeks, or months,
then just quit. If I let it set for 10 to 20 minutes, it would restart and run fine
for at least the rest of that day. About 2 weeks ago, I was fortunate that it happened when someone was with me, so I was able to determine that it
was not getting any spark. Since then the problem has gotten worse and
more frequent - it was happening almost every day and would take over
1/2 an hour before it would start again. This morning was the last straw.
I drove for about 4 miles and it quit. Took 1 hour and 10 minutes before it
would restart. Drove another 2 miles and did it again. This time it took
1 hour 35 minutes before restart. After 1 more mile, it quit again. Took 2
hours, this time. Made it another mile and BAM! - did it again.
My bro towed me home. I determined that it is most likely NOT the crankshaft position sensor, because 99% of the time they either work,
or they don't. Very rarely does it cause in intermittant problem. The most
likely suspect is the engine computer. That was always a likely culpret
when I worked on GM cars. Today I installed a $50 junk yard engine control computer. I am crossing my fingers!
I will know on Thursday, as I have a 50 mile trip to make.
I will post again on Thursday, to let you all know.

I have a 1992 dodge dakota 3.9l v6 when im driving the motor will just cut out. sometimes it will start right back up and sometimes it will take like 15 to 20 min before it starts back up. no check engine...


One way to confirm if it's a spark problem or fuel delivery problem is, when it quits and won't start, remove air intake hose at throttle body opening and spray some WD-40 ( 2-3 sec. ) into throttle body, then try to start. If it fires up momentarily then stalls again, have fuel pressure tested. The WD-40 acts like quick start and if that fires the engine over, then you have spark, but not enough or any fuel.
If that doesn't help, no start at all even with WD-40 sprayed in throttle body, then I'd think real serious about changing the hall effect pick-up ( pick-up coil) in distributor, if you have that style distributor. It is located under distributor cap below rotor, it looks like a round black plate in shape with wiring and connector at end of it. Remove cap, remove rotor, and lift it out, unplug from connector. Replace it in same position, then re-install rotor, then cap. They were a pretty common problem in earlier years. Engine would just quit anytime after it was warmed up, then sit for 15-20 minutes, then restart and go for a while and do it again.

It keeps shuting down i have replaced fuel pump, plugs,coil, when driving it will just shut down if let it set for a few min it will start back up now it will not start...


You need to figure out which one you are losing. You are either losing fuel, or spark. When the engine quits, immediately open the hood, and check for spark. Let us know what you find. Good luck!
