Engine Performance problem
1991 Dodge Dakota V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 61000 miles
I have a 91 Dodge Dakota LE, 5.2 L that is stalling intermittently. Sometimes it will go several days without stalling. It will stall 3 to 5 times in the first few miles. I can be traveling 35mph or just parked, it does not matter. It’s just as if I turned the key off. Sometimes it will start right back up when I crank it and sometimes it will not. If it does not start, I can wait 45 seconds and then it will start right away. I hooked up a dwell meter to the coil and found that when it will not start the meter is just like the key was off but as soon as the meter jumps the engine will start within 2 seconds. Plugs and wires look fine, replaced the rotor, battery connections have been cleaned and are tight.
Any ideas? Thanks.
