Crank sensor

A faulty crank sensor will cause the engine to immediately shut off (or not start). There is no signal being sent to the ECM to tell it when to fire the spark plugs.

1998 dodge dakota(318 eng will run until warm or hot and if you turn off motor. will not crank back up . motor spins just wont crank ...bottom crank pulley eats up belts also------where is the crank...

The crank position sensor is behind the pass side head, just above the bellhousing, just about were the trans dipstick is located but I would get a compression check at a reputable mechanic shop. It may be due to low compression. The crank sensor should show a code.

98 dakota died at stop sign, will not start ,no spark. Any suggestions?

Two of the most common problems for a no spark condition on your truck are a bad coil, or a bad crank sensor. However, you will need a lab scope to accurately diagnose the crank sensor. The PCM could also be at fault, but is very unlikely.

Where is the crank shaft sensor locate on a 1998 dodge dakota 2.5

Should be bolted right before the transmission (it has a wire connected to the harness) on the upper side of the engine (near the interior). See Chilton manual 20404.

95 dodge dakota - cranks, runs 4 times, 5th don't wanna run

You will need to check the fuel pressure, if it is on the minimum pressure side or lower then you will need to change the fuel pump.

98 Dodge Dakota "pick up coil" cam position sensor repeat failure

Honestly? Cruddy parts.

I have a Dodge Stratus....97....same thing here. Unfortunately, shoddy parts, even from the dealership. I think the best thing is to keep a fresh one on hand. I know that the wiring is garbage too due to how the harness curls up to the sensor. Not much to tell you on this one.
