I have a 96 Dakota V6, my problem with my truck is it tends to just shut down. I've notice it happens in the afternoon when it's warmer, in the morning on my way to work it's great no problem no indication that it has any issues. When I get off of work and am trying to get home, that's when the stalling starts. Here lately it has left me stranded at work, when I finally get a hold of someone to pick me up, the truck starts and will idle fine, it's when I pop it into gear (reverse) and start backing up then it takes a while to start up again. Now if I am lucky enough to get it going if I slow down there's a chance it will just turn off or if I slow down to make a turn it will shut off. If I stop at an intersection it will shut off, but if I put it in park and press on the gas a couple of times I should be ok providing I press both the brake and gas (as I put it in drive) at the same time and release the brake slowly. At times it will sputter, shake, cough etc., as it is attempting to keep idling or if I am at an intersection. Any help would be great......I have had a tune-up done, they replaced spark plugs wires cap. When the problem continued they replaced crankshaft position sensor because I have an oil leak and oil had gotten all over it, they did replace the starter a coil of some sort. But I still continue to have problems, any help / advice / suggestions would be welcomed.
