Hi! The fuel filter may be clogged by dirt and rust causing failure of fuel supply to the engine. Try replacing the fuel filter and it may resolve the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    I have tested the fuel line pressure and it is at 45 to 50lbs.

    Alright, how bout the MAF (mass air flow) sensor? The MAF sensor may be faulty and may need replacement. It has big contribution on engine performance specially the idling.

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.

Probably some sensor is failing. Have your engine codes scanned. many auto part stores will scan your vehicle codes.

My mother ran my 1997 Dodge Dakota Sport 3.9 liter V6 without the serpentine belt. After putting new belt on it, now it won't start. It's getting fuel and the engine is turning over, just not...


Assuming nothing more than what you say here, I would first check compression on the cylinders. The serp belt alone will not cause the no start condtion you describe. If the vehicle ran before the belt was replaced, it should still run afterwards. Most likely, the "three minutes" you describe may in fact have been a few more than that, and the result could be cracked or warped heads. If you have fuel and spark, the only things you still require are air and compression. As air is most always readily available, compression is the last vestige to be checked. If the compression is bad, you have your answer. Good luck!

Can anyone show me wht a fuel pump looks like on a 1997 dodge dakota sports


The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank. There is a fuel filter along the frame near the cab and box area. On top the back side of the engine is the fuel pressure sensor on injection rail assembly. There is a fuel pressure fitting to check pressure. I hope this helps.

Interior light stay on intermitant


Check for moisture under the interior carpeting.
I have see it cause this when the wiring gets wet on the connections from the door switches. Other wise you are going to have to get a meter and check all the wiring to each door and the lamp switch.
