Engine quits after 3 or 4 miles of driving

Dodge Dakota pick-up 1994 3.9 V-6. The engine will quit running after 3 or 4 miles of driving. I can let it set for about 2 minutes and it will re-start just fine then the same thing all over again. It just started doing this 2 days ago. AL

I would think either a bad coil, or ignition module,or fuel pump. Sometimes the big relays for these system can cause this symptom so rotate the important ones in the engine compartment. Also if yours has an ASD relay this is your main power one.

1994 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V6 dies occasionally, does not shift to OD occasionally (automatic), frequently stumbles while driving. It sat for several years without driving. I have been driving it for three


Replace the gas filter!

That could even explain the failure to shift into Overdrive, as the engine cannot be running lean for the computer to allow it to shift into Overdrive.

Easy $10 fixya.

Goes 5 miles and dies


Does it start right back up?if it does does it run another five miles. Does the car seem to be too hot? Is the check engine light on with the engine running? If the lights on get the codes read and follow their lead. over heating is in the five mile range as is the fuel tank not getting air in to let the fuel flow out. The exhaust can be stopped up but if it does restart after quitting it'll runn only a short time before it quits again. Driving the car harder will make it quit sooner as will warmer weather.

Engine stalls


sounds like one of a couple things could be causing you problems first would be the fuel pump may be wearing out. these are a mechanical pump and should be producing over 35psi at the injection pump if you have a way to put a gauge on it you could check this under full throttle is when you want to watch it though. fuel gauges are quite inexpensive and are handy to have in the truck anyway. another thing i have seen cause this is the check valve on the discharge of the pump there is a spring and ball in the return line banjo fitting that holds the fuel pressure at a constant 35 psi when that gets weak it allows more fuel to return to the tank which will let it run at lower rpm's but not under full load. hope this helps

1994 dodge shadow when warm spedometer quits battery loses voltag


I would start with the altenator. The repair is very easy.

Rick after you replace the altenator and the system does not get any better. The system has a draw or short . The vehicle has a body control module . This could be the cause or the power distribution box in the engine were all the relays are is starting to go out. I would take the vehicle in to you local mechanic to check it out if the altenator replacement does not work.
