Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
This appears to be an ignition problem and will require testing with a volt meter at the least. It could be the ignition coil due to the fact that the vehicle was most likely @ running temperature when you experienced the engine shut down. When coils are defective, they will leak voltage when hot, therefor they will not supply spark the the plugs. Since the vehicle flooded...I'm assuming you smelled fuel, which is an indication that fuel pressure is not an issue. Make a visual inspection or have someone check the ignition coil, having a vehicle shut down while driving cause's you to loose power steering and power brakes and is not something that should be taken lightly.
