Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a '98 dodge Dakota 3.9L v-6 2wd that has had an intermittent stalling problem. I've replaced the primary ignition coil, distributor cap and rotor, ASD relay. Fixed 2 vacuum leaks, replaced the brake booster check valve and the gromets. The PCM is still fully communicating, there's no trouble codes present. I checked the 5v references at the TPS, MAP, Crankshaft Position Sensor, and the camshaft position sensor/distributor. with the truck running the distributor sensor was reading 4.6 MilliVolts, don't ask me how it was even running. the connector is loose where the wires connect to it, it I jiggle it the connection reads good then if I jiggle it again it loses voltage....is it the connector, or do I need to trace the power wire back to the splice and see if its there or between the splice and the connector?? I'm kinda lost on this I've been chasing my tail with this problem for almost a month now, any help would be wonderful!

Id say fix the loose connection. Electrical problems are funny actors, they in most cases make you think its something else.

WOW!!! The only thing I could think of is the timing chain jumped time, or the engine is out of time. Do all the timing marks line up? Please let me know what you find!!!!

1997 dodge Dakota pickup truck. it stalls sometimes at idle, and running down the road 70 mph it just cuts out, and dies.


Start with the most basic item: check your compression. Low compression gets lower when an engine gets warm.

My 92 toyota truck won't start 22R-E.


it is electronic
could be a faulty coil /wiring
not the chain or it would not be running at all
I would be looking at an incorrect coil or igniter in the distributor
coils come in 2 types
12 volts start and 7.5 v run or straight 12 volts
if you run a 7.5 volt coil without the resistance wire or resistance block , it will overheat the coil and it will break down , missing or hard to start or no start at all

1991 dakota intermittently stalls or will not start after being run for 30 minutes or more of running.


When it does this you need to check if you have voltage ( spark ) going to the end of the spark plug wire, but it sound to me like your pick up coil is going bad, pick up coil sit under the distributor cap under the distributor rotor same size as distributor assembly ( black ) cheap$$, good luck, hope this was very helpful.

Died while driving


while engine is running grab the wire harness that leads into the distributor housing with a pair of needle nose pliers and wiggle the wires!!
if the engine stumbles or stalls that is your prob!!!
go to parts store and get a magnetic pickup assembly!!
i think they call it something else but its the same concept, just different because it's a dodge thing!!!
