I hve been having the same issue since acquiring my Dakota. I also have replaced the same things as you and narrowed it down to the O2 sensor or the PCM but was not willing to pursue it because of $$$. I found that I could replicate the problem at will which usually indicates you found the problem. If you go to your PCM while the truck is running jiggle the center connection going to the PCM. I your vehicle dies then this is the issue. Make sure the connection is clean and plugged in more securely. I have put a cable tie around the connection and have not run into this problem again. The MIL kept flashing and coding p0351(ignition coil). Bottom line, check the connection before investing anymore money.

#2 cylinder misfiring why?


Usually if you know which cylinder, you check spark--fuel--compression on that cylinder.
You could do cylinder balance test, engine idling, kill each cylinder, one at a time. If you kill a cylinder that has no effect on rpms, that cylinder is dead for some reason, spark--fuel--compression?
I usually kill spark and do it quickly.

1993 Dodge Dakota 5.2 318 4x4, turns over, but no spark. Cat converter shot, removed. Plugs, cap, rotor replaced. MAP sensor recently replaced...will start and run once in a great while.


Try switching the ASD Relay for another relay in the Fuse Box in the Engine Compartment. If the ASD Relay fails it cancels the power to the Hall Effect & Fuel Pump.
If that doesn't change anything, check the wiring harness that travels down the left wheelwell for damage, It actually goes outside of the engine compartment, into the wheelwell where it can be damaged by rocks, road debris or a tire (if you've flexed the suspension, or had the truck off road). If the wiring there checks out, it leaves one other thing.
The Hall Effect Sensor inside the Distributor.

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.
