#19 of 39 1994 Dodge Dakota 4WD 318c.i. (5.2L) engine 5 speed Man. trans. no fuel
Jun 14, 2009 (11:41 am)
I have 1994 Dakota SLT 4wd w/ 5-speed Manual trans., that i cannot seem to get fuel to engine. Shut it off one day now nothing. have replaced fuel pump, check fuel pump relay, but fuel pump will not activate when ignition is turned on. If I shoot ether into air filter truck will start. I am getting no codes from computer even with self diagnostic. Does anyone have any suggestions or help? I don't know how to check if Computer is bad, but i can,t believe it would only lose ability for fuel pump and nothing else. I have 405,000 miles on this bad girl ( yes i didn't stutter), and have never had anything more major than alternator, water or fuel pump issues in all that time. I do ALL maintenance on this vehicle but am at my wits end please help!!!

It will be located in the gas tank, and to save you the effort, the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump assembly! Taking the drivers rear tire off will greatly help with dropping the tank and doing the proceedure!

OK i found the problem myself! so to help others that might run into this here is what went down! I started checking the wire harness from the Power Distribution Center located by the battery on the drivers side wheel well. It was about 3 to 4 inches towards the fire wall i found the culprit. A connection that had corroded and rotted in-two. Spliced it together and now she is running as strong as ever!! I should warn you that I had to unwrap the wiring harness, so extreme caution should be taken not to damage any of the wires. 405,000 miles and she still runs like a striped Ape!! Long live the MOPAR 318!!!!!! Still the best small block EVER built!!! I am so looking forward to slapping a cool million on the old girl!! Good luck folks!

Have a 1997 Dodge Dakota 4x4. About a month ago my pick up would only run for about 3 seconds and die. Was told it was the fuel pump so i put another fuel pump in and it ran for a couple of weeks and now it is doing the same thing, starts up and runs for 3 seconds and dies out. I Can hear that the fuel pump is running. Can anyone help?

I have a 92 dakota 5.2 MFI..... Will not start or run...... Good compression, good spark, to much fuel. So much fuel that there is gas in the crankcase. I have replaced the computer with no luck. If you hold the pedal to the floor the truck will fire but then will instantly flood.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
