Question about 1990 Dodge Dakota

1990 Dodge Dakota

Another user posted the problem: why does my 1990 dodge dakota stall when i put it in gear
and was told: 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 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.

    I made sure I asked about the idle speed control valve.

    My Dad went out with me to take a look at it, and he says it looks like a transmission problem. Thanks anyway.

    Could the part you mean be named something else like "Idle bypass motor" that is electricaly controlled and bolted to the throttle body.

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.

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 ?

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.

Do the service below.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If this doesn't improve the problem you have mechanical problems in the engine like a low cylinder die to worn rings or leaking valve seats.
