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.
Low coolant? Cooling system airbound? Low coolant? Cooling system airbound?
In the cooling system it transfers heat out through the radiator. If mixed with the gasoline, it can cause rough running or no start. If pulled in through the air filter it can cause a catastrophic failure.

Possibly a clogged or restricted radiator Low coolant Cooling fan not working Thermostat not opening fully

Leaking injector is the most common cause.
The radiator cooling fan is most likely not working.

There are a few things that can cause a 1999 Dodge Dakota to sputter. For example, the battery may be malfunctioning or the park plugs can be going bad.
Failed radiator transmission cooler.
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.
