Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab
Truck keep falling dead running 65 miles per hour and star back after 15 minutes
Dakotas and Durangos are notorious for faulty crankshaft sensors. The symptoms you describe fit. There are other things it could be, but that would be my first inclination.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge ram 2500 diesel
I'm no expert, but I am on my second Dodge. I have a 2004 Ram 2500, 125k miles on it. I traded in my 2001 1500 with 99k on it.
Your problem sounds like one of two things that happened to me. At 110k mi's it was not accelerating properly, particularly between 40 and 50 mph. It turned out my torque converter was going bad and I ignored it for too long and it's disintegrated pieces ruined my transmission. I recommend getting over to Aamco right away or to the dealer if you are still in warranty and have the TC checked out. The diesel is just too much torque for a torque converter on the automatic transmission, but manuals are too much of a pain these days. $2300 at Aamco to have the TC replaced and the tranny rebuilt.
The new problem I have now is when it acted like it was out of fuel and then wouldn't turn over after it died. My fuel lift pump (diesels have two of everything and the expensive one is always what goes) has gone bad and is currently being replaced, $700 part, plus another few hundred in labor.
Hope this helps.

If you are experiencing a "shimmy" that only occurs at a certain speed, I'd suspect a tire balance issue. If it were in the alignment, the problem would manifest itself at all speeds not just at 60 mph. There's a chance that a wheel weight fell off or the tires have uneven wear. If you do have uneven wear on the tires, then you may worn front end parts that need to be dealt with. Incorrect tire pressure can cause uneven wear as well. Hope this helps.

I would start by checking your ignition system, mainly the ignition coil. Sometimes when they get hot they fail and when they cool down they work properly. I would also check to see if the fuel pump may be overheating as well. Connect a fuel pressure guage to the system and watch the fuel pressure after you drive it. When it starts to act up if the fuel pressure goes wild you will have your answer.
