Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota
The truck drives fine until I give it the gas to pass or accelerate hard then it just acts like it is bogging and will not rev above 3500 rpm's and any gear(manual trans). I have also noticed that sometimes it is hard to start in the am have to hit the key 2 or 3 times before it will turn over???
My truck did the same exact thing -- fuel psi looked good --so we mounted the gauge so you could see it while driving . When you hit the throttle the psi dropped to 5. Let off and it came right back up to 45-50 . It was the short rubber hose in the tank that connects the fuel pump to the pickup tube -it came loose and was collapsing -- a new piece of hose and clamps and its been fine ever since --pump was fine .

Check your air intake hose. If there is a hole after the air intake sensor, the engine computer will not recognize the need for more gas, because the inflow of air does not require it. Therefore the engine will be starved for gas. If this is the case, duck tape will solve the problem.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
