When driving my 99 dodge dakota 5.2 sometimes when between speeds of 45-55 it will begin to feel as though it is struggling. it makes a lound popping sound from the engine area. then yesterday i went to take it out and got to the end of the block and it just stopped working. tried to restart, would get it turned over but wouldn't stay started. started just fine this morning.

im not 100% but i think that truck has a hydraulic clutch. if it does for sure then check the fluid level if its a cable or linkage type then it may be out of adjustment. Ether way (low on fluid or out of adjustment) the clutch may not be fully disengaged while your trying to shift. Start there before getting to far into it.
This could be a number of things but my 99 ES had a bad speed sensor that caused similar problems. Your best to have a mechanic check and replace if needed.
Don't drive it too much before getting this fixed.
The problem could be in your differential. If the ABS traction ring has any defects in the teeth, the rear wheel speed sensor will stop registering and disable your ABS.
This may not resolve your transmission concern, but it may answer your ABS/Brake light problem.
