Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 90,000 miles


Warm weather causes 98 Dodge Dakota 3.9 engine to stall at any speed, anytime. Engine completely dies and takes 20 to 30 min for engine to cool while off. Then able to restart, but problem persists within 5 to 15 minutes after cooling. Consequences are I have paid to have PCM replaced, as well as fuel pump. Could cause death on freeway when everything dies at 70 mph. Almost caused wreck today. No known fix, have spoke with Chrysler and dealership on many occasions with no answer.
