Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
After riding the truck long enough to get the engine warm it sometimes don't want to idle and it will quit. When you try to start it, you can crank and crank and after a while it will start back.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Some dodge vehicles you can get mil codes, not sure about your year? It won't hurt to try, turn key just till dash lites come on, no further, cycle the key on--off, on--off, on. Then the mil on the dash starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes.
Also, when the problem is ongoing have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure, not only check for correct fuel pressure check that the pressure will hold for a bit, with everything off.
Sometimes with idle issues, I check the idle air system.
