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

There have been several proposed fixes for this, but nothing works for every case. You can check that the ground wires are properly grounded (pins 31 and 32 on connector #1, black wires with tan tracer). Or you may need to replace the PCM. See the link from YouTube.

2001 dodge dakota wont crank


Check the plugs to see if you all cylinders are burning clean. Multiple fouled plugs can cause the same problem. Wet plugs indicate they aren't firing at all, which means the coil pack isn't working. Check the air filter, it could be choking the motor if it's too dirty. Check the fuel filter to see if it's clogged from dirty gas.

Stalling out at normal operating temp!


it sounds like the fuel pump is quitting once it gets warm. I've seen this plenty of times. When you turn the key to on, not all the way to start you should hear the fuel pump humm for a second or 2. When it quits on you try this to see if you get that humming. I bet the pump is dying, specially since everything else is new. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. I would look at the timing belt/chain. Have you ruled out the fuel pump, fuel system? May be the computer.

I have a 1996 dodge dakota pickup has trouble starting .....


Not knowing your truck, I'm not sure what Dodge calls it but there is a device that monitors the ambient temperature and sets the fuel-air ratio accordingly.
The "Idle air control" can be used for this in some makes. If this or some part of it has failed, the mix is probably not getting enriched enough to ensure reliable cold starting.

2000 Dakota 3.9 V6 wont start just cranks, has plenty of fuel


I agree that it's probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS).  Without the pulse from this sensor, you vehicle will never start.  Sometimes water from a leaking water pump will run down onto this sensor and cause it to fail.  
You can go to MSN Auto for your vehicle and under the "Reliability" tab  you will see the same thing regarding the CPS (listed under Engine issues).
