Question about 1990 Dodge Dakota
When you say it stops running I will assume you mean it does restart?
If indeed this is true, I suspect it quits when it gets warmed up.
Crankshaft sensor problems are a very common problem in these trucks.
When heated they would expand and open a circuit in a coil inside them.
When they cooled, it would again make contact and restart.
The V8 318 was the worst but also would happen in the V6.
The sensor is mounted in behind the right side cylinder head down close to where the engine and transmission are bolted together.
They are held in place by a bolt with a 10mm head.
The sensor should be available at your favorite auto supply.
If my assumption is off the mark, let me know with a little more background on the problem and I will try to help you along.
Happy New Year and thank you for using FixYa.
