95 dakota, randomly dies, then sometimes wont start. Sometimes might start right after it dies. Dies while driving in gear going down the road. It has spark, its a v8 5.2?


This is a common issue with Dakotas of all engine sizes. I have a 99 Dakota and it did the same thing. The usual culprit is the crankshaft position sensor. They are relatively cheap (as far as parts go), and are easy to replace. I would try that first. The interesting thing about them failing is that they rarely set an Engine Failure Code.

01 dakota 4.7 after few hours it takes couple seconds longer to crank bout 6sec. After that it starts fine. Now its a 3 second delay and a wierd idle then goes away. At a stop sometimes drops 500rpm?


Check engine light on? If so go to any major auto part store and ask them to hookup computer for diagnostics codes. This is a free service. Sounds like a sensor gone bad.

this sounds like a bad connection or a bad VSS sensor... either way it needs replacement/repair.. if the tach sends 0 info to the ECM the car will quit or run in an open loop causing it to run real poor... have someone like Auto Zone??? scan it for free and give you the computer code results.... this will help you unravel the mystery of the stalling.

2001 dodge dakota stalling when coming to a stop


While driving, the Idle air control valve (IAC) fully retracts and you control airflow with the gas pedal. When you come to a stop the computer extends the IAC to let air bypass the throttle plate and maintain idle speed. If the IAC is sticking it sometimes cannot compensate fast enough to avoid a stall. The problem is aggravated by the Air conditioner clutch cycling on while stopping. You don't mention the check engine light so not likely a sensor. If you have a OBDII scanner with live data available you can check the Throttle position sensor easily. You are looking for a smooth change through the range as you press and release the gas pedal. Or use a voltmeter to see the TPS. Measure resistance with engine off or voltage (0 to 5 volts) with ignition on. It should move smoothly through the range.
Another easy test. Park brake on, in gear (if an automatic transmission) at idle, load the engine by turning the steering quickly to the end and see how quickly the IAC recovers. Clean or replace IAC and while in there clean the carbon off of the edges of the throttle plate.

Engine quits after 3 or 4 miles of driving


I would think either a bad coil, or ignition module,or fuel pump. Sometimes the big relays for these system can cause this symptom so rotate the important ones in the engine compartment. Also if yours has an ASD relay this is your main power one.
