Runs like a champ!

Vehicle: 1991 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I am the second owner of this vehicle, but it has been in the family since new. The truck was lightly driven for the first 13 years, and then I've put on more regular miles (approx. 15k a year) since 2004. This truck is a rock and maintenance wise fairly inexpensive to own. The major work I've had done on it since I've owned it is a new drive shaft, new transfer case, and a new power control module.

What's New for 1991

Base four-cylinder engine gets more horsepower. Club Cab can be ordered with four-wheel drive. Slow-selling convertible model is dropped from lineup. Front styling is freshened with composite headlamps (LE and Sport), new bumper, new grille, and extended sheetmetal to better accommodate the optional V8 engine. Exterior door handles are now metal instead of plastic. Front disc brake calipers are larger. Ignition and lock keys are double-sided.

1991 Dodge Dakota, 4 cylinder, manual transmission. I was driving down the highway and there was a sharp jerk. The engine cut out and I coasted onto an exit ramp. It won't restart unless I hold down t...
