2001 Dodge Dakota Question: intermittent engine failure
Answer #1dandd June 21, 2009, 17:53Master
It sounds like an intermittent problem with some thing like your crank sensor. ( common on Dodges ) Have your computer checked for codes. There may be a code in there for a bad crank sensor. It the Check Engine Light ever on?

thanks for your reply. A few weeks back a check engine light was on, I ran a code check and it showed a vacuum leak. I tightened what I thought was a loose gas cap, then disconnected the battery and reconnected it. The check engine light has not reappeared, and if I run t he codes nothing appears.
