Have you relapced the fuel pump and filter? Take it to a garage and have the fuel pump pressure checked. It very common for fuel pumps or a clog in the line to cause this.

1997 Dodge Dakota Sport, V6. Truck died while driving and won't start.


You need to know if it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel pressure before you start replacing parts.
It could be as simple as the ASD relay.

Check with AZ Parts and see if they don't have a machine they can check that for you. That's the simplest way to find it. Your could spend months and never find it yourself. That diagnostics machine will find it right away.

1997 dodge dakota dies periodically


Check for any stored codes, on 97 models you may have to turn on the key without starting the engine, do this 5 times in rapid order then stop with the key in the on position without starting the car.

The service engine soon light will blink

Count the number of blinks

This will be the begining of the code test and the actual code numbers and finally a code number stating the test is over.

Look up the codes in the haynes repair manual and it will lead you in the right direction for any parts that have thrown an error code.

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.
