Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

1997 dodge Dakota pickup truck. it stalls sometimes at idle, and running down the road 70 mph it just cuts out, and dies.

I have replaced the crankshaft sensor,sensor under the distributor, the plugs,the primary ignition coil, the fuel pump,and because thinking the cat was plugged took it off, and it was completely empty. see right through it. so I then replaced the muffler thinking the stuff in the cat ended up in the muffler. put every thing back together test drove, ran 10-15 miles came to the first light after all this and it dies. so now WTF.

Start with the most basic item: check your compression. Low compression gets lower when an engine gets warm.

My 1987 Dodge Dakota pickup guys going down the road when I let off the gas it will go dead I replaced the fuel pump new filters What's wrong


My first guess would be a sticking idle air control valve or idle speed motor.
Can you keep it running by shifting into neutral ?
Is it possible the EGR valve is hanging open causing a vac leak ?

1997 dodge dekota sport,stalls out,wont stsy running


Concerning the 1997 Dakota: I had the same problem. After a little checking and research I believed it to be the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve). I replaced it and it started right up and idled perfectly. It never stalled again. The IAC is located on the backside of the throttle body and is easy to get to and change out. Hope this helps.

1997 DODGE DAKOTA WILL SOMETIMES START OR STALL


To much difference between 04 and 97. To use an 04 ECM, you need the trucks complete wiring harness. Then you would have to change the transmission also. You better get in line to sue him also..

1997 Honda Civic dies while driving but will restart


It sounds like your car needs a good solid tune up. It sounds like the injectors are fighting to get fuel so the slower you go the chances of you stalling is even greater. And the faster you go the fuel system is just getting just enough fuel that the car needs to keep running.....I hate to say this but it sounds like you need a tune up.
