Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota v6.
This is an intermittent problem.
When you are stopped at a stop sign or light, it will start to idle rough, and then when you go to take off it backfires threw the throttle body with a loss of power. When you stomp on the gas peddle and let off it will run just like nothing was wrong, also some times you will feel a hesitation when you are cursing 25 to 35 mph. You give it the gas
and it runs smooth. It has been doing this for about 3 years.
It mite do it 1 time a day or 10 times a day or not at all.
I have a friend that is a mechanic and he brought home an O.D.B. meter from work. The O.D.B. Meter said the truck was running perfect until it started missing then it said, miss fire in number 1 cylinder every time. The check engine light doesn’t come on. This is what I changed after the problem started. I changed the spark pugs and wires. I put in a new Throttle Position sensor. I changed the fuel injector in number 1 cylinder. I put in a new distributor and Cap and Rotor.
I am looking for some Ideas.

I would figure that it's the brain. I have had to replace mine 2 times. It backfires and misses and stalls and sometimes runs great. You can also check to see if the conections to the brain are all firmly attached. I guess it is aproblem with this year of dakota and brains ar hard to find.

Have you tried removing the idle speed motor and cleaning it with throttle body cleaner, as well as port it is removed from?
