Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
I have a 1998 dakota 3.9 3 times this has happened , turn a gentle corner left turn and dies,, change the fuse and it blows,,get it towed and its fine,, happens with 1/2 tank fuel guive or take, I dont let it get under 1/4 for cooling pupose,have had the dash apart at the dealership 3 times, pulled the fuel pump, all connections are clean, screen not ripped ,got a circuit breker in instead of a fuse, dont really want to spend 540 for a pump if that isn`t the problem,, Any help will be appreciated
If you're blowing the fuse to the fuel pump, then you have a short either in the pump itself or in the electrical wiring going to the pump. When you make the left turn, a bare wire could be hitting the frame rail or some other metal surface and causing the short. I would trace the electrical wires from the engine compartment all the way back to the pump to see if that is the case, if it's the pump itself, I'd go buy a new one. You should be able to get a Master brand pump for $100 or less instead of buying a more expensive dodge pump that you don't really need.
