    have you checked fuel pressure?

    Have you checked for spark?

    Have you tried starting it on a shot of carb spray?

I have had this problem with the dodge trucks. It usually turns out to be the cam sensor located on the right rear of the engine on the bell housing. it is a tight spot to get to the easiest way would be through the wheel well with the tire off.

1995 dodge Dakota 5.2 v8. Will die for no reason may start and run but not long. I have replaced fuel pump coil new plugs and wires and map sensor? ????

Dakotas are notorious for this issue, and it doesn't seem to matter what engine they have. They have a tendency to have the crankshaft position sensor intermittently fail. This causes the engine to shut off without warning as though you turned the key off. Sometimes they restart immediately, but they often need anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours to work again. They often do not set a Check Engine Code. The sensor is relatively inexpensive and fairly easy to change. It is a better option that "Easter egging" sensor after sensor, only to have no joy.

I have 2002 dodge dakota 3.9 california emissions it has 4 o2 sensors. It has a p0152, p0138, and p0158. How likely is it that all four sensors are bad?

very unlikely. Though it is possible that the engine is burning more fuel than the o2 sensors can measure. This could be caused by a number of things that affect fuel management. Use these codes as a reference to identify the problem.

1998 Dodge Ram 150-0 5.9L V8 error code 1282

sorry this is kind of confusing,. sounds like you had problems that went without repair,

What exaclty is the problem NOW?
You could need to replace the upstream or downstrem o2 sensor, have a short at the fuel pump or along the way = inspect all wiring, especially at the fuel tank (where your fuel pump is located).

after more thoughts:

P0138 has high voltage at the o2 sensor, check relays and inspect all wiring leading to it.

p1282 is excessive injection control pressure - maybe some regulaator in the fuel line which is failing?
I hoipe this helps, if not please separate the issues, in some historical order with paragraph separation (sorry I am a little dislexic and it is hard for me to follow -- and hopefully someone can assist further?
Best regards

Slow start 2004 dodge dakota v8

P0038 typically indicates O2 sensor failure or possible grounding out if the cabling to it has failed. Start with that as it is easier to replace than all the plugs/coils etc. Reset the code and cross your fingers.

Code p0138 for the second time

P0138 is code for o2 sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2. This sensor is the one behind the cat on the side of the engine that contains cylinder No 1.

I'm getting code P0138 on '99 Ram

Could be just the sensor, could be a bad fuse, or could be bad wiring. Change the sensor, check the fuse, and check wiring, or reverse order.
