When is th elast time you had a complete tune-up? If it has been a while, this may be your problem. It could be a sensor, "Yes sensors can be going bad and not set off the check engine light too". It could be many things, have you looked at you oil lately? If you have and have been paying attention to it, is there any oil consumption? If it is consuming oil, then it could be your plenum gasket leaking which I have heard this is a known problem with the Dakota 5.2 liter engine. Check the simple things first or you may be going to great lengths to spend too much time and oney on things that are not the actual culprit.
