Are you replying to me? I'm not the one that changed the cam sensor.
BTW..who told you that you need to reprogram the PCM after changing
the cam (or crank) sensor?????

#460 of 467 2010 Dodge Dakota 4.7LV8 engine racing issue
Aug 18, 2012 (7:57 am)
Pulled up to a stop about 20 seconds after starting car. Car stopped very jerkily; required a lot of pressure on brake. At first I thought my trailer brakes installed 6 weeks ago weren't set right but then I realized the engine was racing. When I released brake, truck jumped forward squealing tire. No more issues while I was out. Taking it in Monday for a look/see. Any ideas or known issues that may help me out? Thanks in advance. Side note. I sometimes, but infrequently, have engine idle fast at startup. This was definitely different than that.

How many miles do you have on truck? Sounds like it could be fuel pump starting to fail. I had a 92 dakota that started to loose power and it ended up being the fuel pump. The first time it acted up I started the engine and when I put it in gear it stalled. Started up again and later stalled again.

If you wanted to be sure it is the fuel pump you coould take it to your regular service facility and have them check the pressure output on the pump. That wouldn't take long for them to do. I believe there is a connection near the engine that they can hook to and read the pressure.

HELP!! Truck was running fine one day and then went to start it up the next day and it would crank and then cut right off. I changed the fuel filter, rebuilt and cleaned the carb. changed vacuum hoses, replaced the pcv valve, spark plugs, wires, rotor and dis cap, and replaced MAP sensor (because the truck would run and drive without it plugged in) but then when i replaced it with a new one it did the same starting and then cutting off routine. So now I'm lost. I have no idea what else it could be. Right now I'm driving it without the MAP sensor plugged in, which is causing me to burn fuel like crazy. Anyone having the same problem or have any solutions? PLEASE!!!
