Re: 97 Jetta stalls when hot but restarts after 10...
I don't think so. You really need to get into component testing and see what has failed. I would guess that it is either the engine coolant temp. sensor or the fuel pump relay or fuel pump. Find out if you ECM has any stored codes, this might help put you in the right direction.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Fuel injection relay. It is located under the hood inside the fuse box. It is either red or green in color. It is one of the larger relays. This is classic symptom of these things going bad. The heat causes the relay to swell and not engage properly. They die out every couple of years. Usually the car will start again after it cools down.
Replace hall effect pick up plate in distributor. Remove distributor cap, and rotor. Black round plate under rotor is the pick up. Remove it, unplug wiring, align it same as old one and install new, plug it in, replace rotor and cap. It was a common problem for those.
5 years ago for cap & rotor???? It sounds like it's in dire need of a complete tune up - plugs. wires, cap, rotor, all fluids & filters ESPECIALLY fuel filter. I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. Do your tune ups more frequently like every 30K - not wait 5 years!
then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed
The problem on your dakota is Very Common.
On my 10 year working on Vehicles " On US."
And I Owned a jeep's 93, 97, 2000, 2007,
I recomend Replace the Cam position sensor (hall efect pick-up)
And the Crank position sensor, Located between the Engine and transmission housing.
all times when they come damage, run and stall is the first simptom. but ane day will not run completlly.
Ok.. I hope this help on your problem.
Thank you for use fixya...
