Question about 1995 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

1995 Dodge Dakota PU, 3.9 V6,no spark. Checked power to 40a fuse & fuse, all good. Replaced coil, still no spark. Looked in distributor cap, no apparent problems. Is there a fuse link I'm missing?

No spark. Checked coil wire to body, none. Checked power to fuse, good, fuse, good. replaced coil, still nothing. No power to coil (12 v) when key is on, but power is going thru the fuse. Does power to coil go thru computer 1'st, or constant when key is on? thinking brain it may be bad.

SOURCE: 1995 Dodge Dakota Pick up

go to Didgeforums.com.

I had a similiar problem, found the solution there. It was the wiring harnes on the drivers side under the hood, just above the wheel well. there are a cluster of wires in a bundle. I unpacked the bundle carefuly and sure enough the were two or three wires all coroded, had wite powder from corosion. repaired the connections and bingo. I posted details at dodgeforums.com. browse around there. I posted pictures as well. this is a common problem.

SOURCE: 1995 dodge dakota 2wd 3.9 no spark to plugs,or coil,orfuelpump

First of all let's explain how the spark gets to the plugs. There is a crankshaft position sensor and a cam sensor. They are what determines when to fire the coils and injectors. The crank sensor is located on the passenger side on top of the bellhousing, the cam sensor is the pickup plate in the distributor. As the engin turns the send refernece pulses to the computer which grounds and ungrounds the ignition coil causing it to discharge and send voltager from the secondary coil wire to the center tower in the distributor cap. The rotor button recieves the voltage and distributes it to the 6 towers (1 for each cylinder) If you say you're getting spark from the rotor that tells me the primary side of the ignition system is working, and the secondary side is working into the distributor cap. I'd check for spark out of the plug wires at the plugs. Pull a wire and insert a #2 phillips screwdriver into it, hol the shaft of the screwdriver aprox 1/8"(no more) from the exaust manifold and observe the spark as someone turns over the engine. You should see a nice blue spark. If theres spark, spray a little gum cutter in the throttle body an crank it, if it fires you have a fuel problem. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve on the fuel rail and observe it as you crank it. If theres no fuel pressure maks sure there's fuel in the tank, if so climb underneath and beat on the bottom of the tank with a rubber hammer, the pump may be going bad, sometimes you can jar them and make them run.

SOURCE: 97 dodge ram no spark

then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

My 91 Dodge Dakota will not start just turns over and over.


1991 without an ECM unit is strange unless you have an older version of the engine installed
you say it has a mass air flow sensor but no CPS( crank position sensor )so that indicates that the spark timing is generated in the pick up in the distributor body amplified by the coil and then distributed out to the plugs
no spark at the plugs will necessitate checking the rotor button is turning, the distributor cap has not track marks to ground the spark out or that the coil is in effect operational
check for 12 volts at the coil terminal while trying to start and 7.5 volts at the coil when the key is in the run position
you could have a problem ignition switch or blown fuse for the ignition circuit

Getting gas no spark. coil and power into the coil good. 1990 dodge dakota with a 3.9.


The coil, injectors, and fuel pump get power from the ASD relay. If you have power to the coil but no spark from the coil, have you checked the pickup in the distributor ?
The pickup sends a signal to the engine computer and the computer fires the coil.

Truck is not firing on 3 cylinders yet it runs.. Runs really rough, back fires, under powered.. Plugs are Wet, Firing order is correct. New Spark plug cables. Don't know that is wrong! Please Help


Check for spark at the plug ( may have coil problem).
If spark is good then do a compression check. Pressure shouldn't be less than 75% of known good cylinders.

1995 dodge dakota v6 will not start began to run rough spit sputter. replaced cam sensor no change .tried changing ign coil no change. checked pwr to coil at plugin no pwr used a voltage meter checked...


If you have no power to the coil with key on, it might be the crank sensor. The spit and sputter ckould be a fuel problem, but if you have no spark now, check the crank sensor.

88 dodge dakota v6 only sparks on 135 cylinders at first now no spark at all it is carbureted. have changed cap, rotor, wires, plugs, coil. sometimes you can crank engine several turns and you will finally...


Remove the distributor cap and look to see that the rotor button is turning,and not stopping,the truck,may have jumped time.The timing chain may hve broke.If not,replace the pick up coil in the distributor.

1994 dodge dakota ran rough then died.


have you checked the distributor? When checking for the spark do you pull out one end of the high tension wire (the one connected to the spark plug )and watch (be careful with this one) if there are sparks coming of the end of the high tension wire? If there are none there check out the distributor it may have gone bad or wiring, specifically the ground connector if they are loose or had been disconnected.

If there are sparks in the high tension check the fast idle control valve and the PCV if they need cleaning and the vacuum tubes if there are leaks
