I've got a 2010 Dodge Dakota, just over 129K miles, V8 (4.7L).

Twice now, now that it's gotten colder, the engine has died just after backing out of my parking space when I shift to drive. This only happens within the first 5 minutes of the car being on; I let the vehicle warm up for about 5 minutes before backing it out of the parking space.

Any reason to why this could be happening? The only code it's throwing is the P2096 code. Also, I also have another issue that's giving me issues (2010 Dodge Dakota Big-horn: Engine sputters when accelerating from stop); could they be related?

Thanks everyone!

  • P2096 says bank 1 is lean. If you have a lean state (showing as true), it could be what's causing the issue. You'd need to see if the O2 is acting up or whether it really has a lean state. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Nov 2 '19 at 0:09
