    I have the same problem, and took the advice listed here. The problem is, I know very little about engines, so I stopped at AutoZone to buy some carb cleaner and ask where the part is. They called it up on the computer, and all their listings said that the 1990 Dodge Dakota didn't have an idle speed control valve. Every part they called up that would be similar came up as "N/R" (not required) for my vehicle. I knew that the idle speed could be adjusted, so I asked were that was done, and was told to follow the hose from the air filter to the throttle-body. I got back to the truck, followed the hose, and found that it led to the grill. Now I'm really lost.

Most likely the idle speed control valve is either not working or has sludge in it, clean it with carb spray and retest.

I have a 90 dakota has ran great butthe carb is dumping to much fuel when the gas is pressed and at idle. Will start and idle but put in gear and try to take off and it stalls out any ideas


To clarify, you have fuel injection instead of a carb.
The problem could be a leaking injector, or a problem with the fuel trim including the engine computer.
Is the check engine light on ?

I have a 1993 dodge dakota that will not run when I put it in gear. If I let it set for awhile (2-3 hours) it will start right up and idle for as long as I want without missing but as soon as I put it into...


Check fuel filter, relay, fuel pump, sometimes the pump will run, but still too weak to run an engine at speed or underload. If fuel pressure checks out to be fine, look for a clogged catalytic converter.

The hose you are talking about sound like the intake tube it is the right one but you went the wrong way.Its not a vehicle im familiar with but follow that hose/tube back toward engine and find the throttle body that has the accelerator cable /which is long and thin/attached to it.Can you see the part that moves if you stand on the gas pedal.The part you see moving is the throttle shaftand throttle body.
