Having problems with your 2001 Dodge Dakota ?

My 2001 Dakota has stopped running

\015 My 2001 Dakota has had rough running issues the last 6months or so. I took it to the repair shop in March. They replaced the cam shaft sensor and crankshaft sensor. Ir ran better but I was told there appeared a wiring issue that they needed to trouble shoot further. They charged me $750 and worked on the car all day. Most of what they did was diagnosis. It also had a exhaust manifold leak which I fixed a month later at a garage by where I work. There they told me the rough running appeared to be fuel injector issues. They suggested getting 4 fuel injectors and trying them out on different cylinders to see if that fixed the issue. Neither of these repair were inspiring confidence. I felt that after $750 it should have been repaired the first time. I read online where someone having similar issues replaced the throttle position sensor. That seemd to be an easy thing to do, so I did that. It improved cruising speed running immensely, but I still had issues with cold starting idling, and acceleration from idle. While I was coming home last night the truck engine stopped running. No sputtering, seizing or any indication. I noticed it when my power steering went off. The started cranks the engine, but the engine will not start. Any ideas?It has a 4.7 L V8, automatic, 4X4 extended cab. The timing chain was replaced about 2 years ago.\015

I have a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville 3.8 non supercharged. It is throwing the codes P0446, P0452, P0453. Yes it is throwing all of them and that is what is confusing me. Just reset the codes, did a start-stop-start-stop and got the 53 twice. Also, the fuel pressure isn't good, you hook up the gauge you get 0, when you turn the key on it jumps to 50 and as soon as the pump shuts off it goes back to 0, and when running it stays at about 47. I would greatly appreciate any help. and no my craftsman

If it shakes, it is normally either a bad motor mount (if the car runs fine) or your car is "missing" on one or more cylinders (misfire). The belt will squeal because they stretch with use. That can be solved by replacing the belt or tightening the b ... 2003 Kia Spectra

Dodge dakota 1995 --occasionally just stops. Can hear that the fuel pump is not running when it kills. I believe that the ASR ( automatic shutdown) relay might be operating.
