01 Dakota POS

Asked by Jun 01, 2017 at 12:47 AM about the 2001 Dodge Dakota 4 Dr SLT 4WD Crew Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 01 Dakota didn't want to start like normal one
day. Took a few extra turns then normal. Drive 40
minutes to work, went on break about 3 hrs later
and would not start. Thought it might be the fuel
pump. It sat for a day or 2 n I figured maybe it was
the fuel pump relay. Switched with another and
presto, it started. Got me home, parked it went to
store few hrs later ran fine. Tried to go to work the
next day, would not start. Truck has been parked
for close to a year and does the same thing,
sometimes it runs,sometimes it don't.
ECM??? Or fuel pump???
