2002 Dodge Dakota Question: How to fix intermittent stalling?
Truck intermittently shudders/stalls while driving. No check engine light & code "P Done" displays. Replaced camshaft sensor & crank shaft sensor (including connectors for both sensors). Still have same problem. Dodge mechanic believes it's ECM. ECM was replaced a little over a year ago. I'm at the end of my rope with this problem. Can't afford to be "nickled & dimed" to death replacing possible fixes. HELP! - kpauole
ECM is a common problem based on the symptom (no code stall). Sometimes will be temperature related, or vibration related. If you can find the ecm, wiggle the wiring at the pcm connector while truck is running. Also, tap on the computer to see if you can recreate the problem. Dirty throttle bodies are a common problem causing a stall or unstable idle - dale45
