Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like a bad power wire. Wire expands with and contracts with heat and cold. Once it gets warm the wire either expands causing an open in the circuit or could be grounding out against something. You could try to narrow down where the wire is bad by running a wire from the positive terminal of the battery to the coil and see if it will stay running then. Also if you have a voltmeter check the voltage at the coil hot wire cold and then when it won't start

your problem may not be the engine. you may have a bad Torque Control Solenoid. try disconnecting the 4 plug ( square ) on the tranny. then drive it around. if it runs ,then you need to replace that Solenoid. call tranny shop for more

SOURCE: 95 dakota cranks but wont start
Well I'm a chrysler master tech & this is a little odd. There's alot of things not in the question so here are mine. I'm assuming it's a 3.9 no 4wd. When did this happen? When you check for power do you have some one turn the key on while you check? If still no power then make sure all the fuses are good from the one under the hood to the one inside the cab. Next be sure to check the grounds. You'll need to by a manual like a Haynes in order to get a decent wiring diagram. In a worst case senario the main power box under the hood has an issue & the asd relay gets no power,hence no start. Ran into it on a 95 caravan & it took a week to figure it out & no replacement was available & I had to hard wire it so it would run. Hope this helps.
