On my 92 dakota with 3.9..cahanged ecu, coil pick up. crank snsr, cap, rotor, coil, ckd under fuse box, no corrotion ..just turns over, no fire

check that the cam shaft is turning . Back firing is a timing issue as it indicates ignition too early (inlet valve still open ) or valve timing out ( inlet valve opening too soon). Check that the immobiliser is operational.

I have a dodge Dakota 92 LE v8 this problem has gradually gotten worse. it will fire right up the periodically shut down; now it wont start at all, then after replacing coil,crank position, cam position,...

Maybe I can help. I had a Chrysler Lebarron V8 that quit on me randomly and it turned out to be the coil resistor on the firewall. I started carrying a spare since it happened so often.

I have a 92 dodge dakota I chanhed sparkpluge distibutor and rotor it still has rough idle hessitates and back fires on take off

With the engine running try spraying a couple shots of carb spray into the throttle body. If the idle smooths out then your running lean. The next step is to check fuel pressure, vacuum leaks, and try unplugging the upstream oxygen sensor. It could be stuck rich which would make the computer drive fuel trims lean.

Would the ignition switch cause 92 dodge dakota not to fire an no gas

It is possible and the check is to get a test light and check for power at the coils and fuel pump. Have the ignition on and in the engine run position for this test. Remember the fault could be in either a fusible link or in a crank position sensor .
