Engine Mechanical problem
1987 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 142000 miles
I have a 87 dakota with a carburated 3.9L. Its starts and idles good when cold but if I let run only a few minutes when it is cold out it will die(like you turned the key off) within a couple hundred feet, normally it will turn over like there is no spark for about a minute then it starts perfect. Start driving again and about a 1/2 to 1 mile later and it dies again. Then it seems to have to sit for about 10 mintues and will start perfect. If you start it when it is cold out and let it warm up for 15-20 minutes it runs and drives great.
have the same problem?
