Check the ignition modules....loose wire harness or damaged module may be the cause..thats "apache territory"..spend a couple of bucks and test by qualified service is better and cheaper
I went through this with my 95 and the problem turned out to be a broken wire just below the main fuse box under the hood. The way we figured this out was to run a light gauge jumper wire across the maxi fuse that controlled the check engine system
Ihave a 95 and i found a broken wire under thewindsheld washer jog in the wire harness.
Yes, a bad O2 sensor would cause a 2002 Dodge Dakota to stall. It would also cause bad fuel mileage and hard idling within the vehicle.
Probably the spark plug or spark plug wires, I would try that first.
I needed one for a 1991 Dodge Dakota. I ended up at the library where they have a whole slew of Chiltons manuals. I found it. You can get the diagram from there.
start with dist cap and rotor
If it is not diesel, you probably have a fouled or disconnected plug.
if it is automatic then this would be caused by shift down is not working in transmission
I would like to Know of any recalls on a 1994 dodge dakota?
It ran out of gas
Check your ignition coil. You can find it by following the CENTER wire on your distributer cap. Replace that first. I would also check lead wires to distributer also they tend to chafe on the intake manifold
Cracked electrical wire caused this to my car once.
MY 1995 DAKOTA got hot because the radiator was rusted out. The fins on the radiator would crumble just by touching it. Replaced radiator, problem solved.
as to fuel, probably a pump or filter as to fire, could be the coil or distributer cap
you probobly just need to change your spark plugs and wires.
Check the wheel bearing.
If they are Automatics it will not shift properly. It would bolt up if they are the same engine.
Check for spark at the plugs. Check for fuel to the engine.
excessive exhaust back pressure, possibly a failed catalytic converter
After about 1995 all Dakota flywheels would have sensor targets on them.
change both filters and be sure both are tight
sounds like an electrnic ignition module I have a dodge 1992 Dakota and it had that same problem, i have tried a lot of thingsthat i thought would work, but then i go a new computer from the junkyard, and it ranperfectly, hope this helps
