Question about 2002 Dodge Dakota Club Cab

1 Answer

Multiple issues 1.Check engine light. there is a problem with the fuel system that i have narrowed down to a sensor that measures vaccum on the fuel cellmaybe pressure. I have found it is the rubber lines that keep cracking seems I will have to replace the entire setup cause I have repaired them twice, and they have cracked again. 2. Interior and exterior lights. The other day I was detoured thru an area; hit a hard bump and all interior lights went out. Upon further inspection found all exterior lights were not working except brake and turn signal which are fine. I checked the fuses. Ohmed the relay coil and contacts in a de-energized position which all apear fine. I even removed the light harness for my trailer lights. 3. Replaced front brake rotors, calipers, pads, and flex lines only to have rotors warp within 100 miles of travel. The truck has a 3.9 ltr, auto trans with 170,000 miles. Its never left me on the side of the road but now is starting to show its age with these little bugs it has aquired.

Don't blame the bump, blame the assholes at Chrysler. Have it checked at dealer, you will get Front Control Module and Power Distribution Module both have internal shorts. Get your money out and slap down about $600 to have them fix it. This is a quite common problem with the Chrysler Vehicles. They are laughing all tghe way to the bank. No more Dodges for me ...............ever!

My 06 saturn ion check engine light is on with codes p0300 p1174 and idle roughly when stopped . Could it be the o2 sensor?


There is a technical service bulletin that states the correct procedure to repair this issue is to replace the injectors with updated units AND reprogram the pcm for the new injectors.

How do i fix a lope in my 1998 chevy malibu


Vaccum test the machine,this will narrow down the problems source....Idle air control(IAC) can and does malfunction without setting fault codes....Hence the old tried and true method of vaccum testing,also a fuel pressure test wouldn't hurt.....You can purchase all these tools from ebay for less than 100.00.....Well worth the initial investment...

I have nissa pathfinder 98 lose powerva check engine light flasting


you need to get the codes read from the computer. those will help to narrow it down. you can buy any obd2 meter and the just plug it in to t.he port by the brake pedal and it will read the codes and tell you. the codes will help narrow down if this is a fuel, electrical, air or sensor problem as loosing power can be from multiple causes. Any shop can read the codes and give you an estimate. even some part places like autozone or pepboys do itbfor free.

No problem with engine, running normal but service engine light on with diagnosis codes 1131 and 1151. What do the codes indicate ?


1131 is a more broad code that says you have a fuel trim issue, and lists many many possible causes. 1151 narrows down the issue and hints towards a lean-mixture picked up by your heated oxygen sensors.
It indicated that the following should be diagnosed: Oxygen sensors Fuel injectors Harness circuits to the injectors, and oxygen sensors. Vacuum systems Powertrain Control Module.
I hope this helps

P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
The misfire detection monitor, a software strategy built into the computer, is designed to detect an engine misfire. The computer can also normally identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. A misfire is nothing more than a lack of combustion, which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. There are other possible, less obvious causes as well, such as uncommanded Exhaust Gas Recirculatin (EGR), flow. When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.
Possible Causes:
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect fuel pressure

EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues

Bogging down


you might have a bad tps (throttle positioing sensor) or maybe a vaccum leak or the idle air control solinoid is bad and be alot of things. if your check engine light came on, you can go to autozone and have them retrieve the code or codes to narrow it down
