Engine Dieing

I have a 1992 dodge dakota v6 .The engine just cuts off when I am driving.the check engine light does not come on so I can't get a code from the computor.I have tuned up the engine.I have replaced two sensors.When it dies it is hard to crank,but if I let it sit for awhile it will crank.It doesn't happen at certain times.It is as random as going down the freeway at 70 to backing out of the driveway.I have narrowed it down to be electrical,but I don't know what else to check.HELP!!!

When it dies, does it spin freely or is the crank just extended (long time before it will start)?

During this time, do you have spark/fuel? Check the links in my signature file for some ideas when it happens again.

YES IT DOES SPIN FREELY.I HAVE PUT GAS IN THE CARB. AND STARTER FLUID AND IT WOULD NOT START.

Again, check the posts in my signature file for some ideas.

It does not have a carburetor. It is TBI fuel injected .

That being said, all the fuel in the world does no good without good spark.

Let us know what you find.
