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?

my 1999 Dodge Dakota start fine but after running a minute or two will act like its running out of gas, it will backfire, and create a smelly exhaust. This occures for maby 15 seconds then you can drive the truck for hours with no problems unless you shut it off for a few minutes.
Now I have fuel in the oil and in the tailpipe please help

Dec 17, 2009 (5:42 pm)
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.

what i did was put the copper tubing in one side of the plastic line. find a piece of neoprine hose about 6" long id just larger then the plastic hose believe mine was 5/16" slide it on the other side make sure the copper tube and the rubber hose are approx. the same length now slide the coppe tube in the other side, the push the hose back over the copper tube now clamp all three down together make sure you are using strong clamps not the cheap china ones
the copper tube prevents the plastic pipe from crushing the noeprine hose is what makes it leak proof

I have a 94' Dakota, 4x4, auto, V8. Today I lost power to my fuel pump. I changed the pump and swapped the relays. According to the dealer, there are no other switches etc in the fuep circut. Any ideas on what to look for? This is my first major problem since buying the truck.
