Dakota Shutting Off While Driving

Asked by Samantha Apr 05, 2011 at 07:47 PM about the 1994 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr SLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Dodge will shut off while driving.  I will be driving along at speeds under 80km/h and she will lose acceleration and shut off.

I have changed the plugs and wires. Checked the coils, changed the distributor and rotor button.  Even swapped computers with an identical truck to see if that was the problem.  

Once she shuts off she will not start.  After letting her sit for a while she will eventually start.

There also seems to be no fire on the plugs after she does this.  

I am not sure what could be the problem.  I am at my end with this truck.

Every sensor was changed on the truck. She is throwing codes like crazy. She ran great til the weather warmed up. Looking for a wiring harness now. Will start with that and work our way back.
