They do not have a inline fuel filter. The stranier on the fuel pump is the only filter I know of.

Where is the fuel filter on 1996 dodge dakota

Its in the tank with the pump.
This is a common practice now with cars built since 2006.
Back in the mid 1990s Dodge and Chrysler Corp were one of the first companies to do it.

1996 dodge dakota slt strats runs for a minute dies takes a minute runs again dies and so on so

It sounds like you a clogged fuel filter, or a weak fuel pump. Change your fuel filter if you haven't in a while.

If you have a timing belt instead of a chain, you will want to check the timing belt as well. If the timing is off even a degree, as the truck warms up the timing will advance and the truck will die.

If you have a check engine light on, have the codes scanned.

Does the 1998 dodge dakota have a replacable fuel filter?

If it's like my 2000 dodge ram the answer is no. I asked the same question and I got yes and no from people all over. Finally, I just went to the parts counter at the dodge dealership and asked for a replacement fuel filter and after they looked up the schematic they said dodge never put one on there. Now, that isn't to say you can't put an inline one in if you really wanted to, but according to dodge they don't need one.

Replacing fuel filter

Unfortunatly most dakotas have an inline fuel filter, its located in the gas tank because there not supposed to need regular maintenance or changing. Basically you have to drop your gas tank to get the fuel filter out.

A final addendum to the 1996 dodge dakota...

Here's the procedure for checking the fuel pump. I would 1st change the fuel filter, 2nd would be to scan for engine codes (free service at most parts stores), then check pressure (on a cool day, below 70 degrees) Good luck, let me know what u find. Curt

Vent the fuel tank vapors by loosening the fuel cap and unplug the injector wiring harness from the main engine wiring harness. The next step is to attach an electrical jumper between a solid ground and the fuel injector terminal pin number 1. Next, connect an electrical jumper between the battery positive post and injector terminal pin number 2 for a period of time not to exceed 4 seconds. This serves to bleed down pressure from the fuel system. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail service test port and energize the fuel pump. This will bring the system to a stabilized fuel pressure that can be visually verified on the gauge.
