If ya do need a computer I grabbed one from a wreck a while ago and havent needed it yet. If ya need it, Ill check back in a few days and see. I'm in B.C. canada. Could be alot of things though. Distributor loose, weak pump, timing, air leak in one of many seals. Best o luck, let me know about computer. you can have it super cheap, dont mind helpin out, cause I know how much you were probably quoted, bro in law had to replace his in a 92. Thats why when I saw this one I scooped it up.

Could be several reasons for this. Plz check fuel filter, air filter and general tune-up items ( I. E.) Spark plugs and wires, air cleaner etc.

Transmission problems with a 88 Dodge Dakota Sport 4x4 need to kno what kind of problems they caused or if they were recalled

Recall??? For a worn-out transmission problem? I do not think you understand what a safety recall is.

As far as what kind of problems can happen with a 24-year-old transmission in a pickup truck....there is not enough space on this page to list all of the possibilities.

It sounds to me like it is time for a transmission overhaul or replacement.

1988 Dodge Dakota problem. I have an 88 Dakota with a 2.2 engine. The MPG just dropped in half from 20 down to 10 I had the carb all checked and adjusted. Sill runs well. Any ideas?

you may have a half way plug fuel filter a bad EGR valve or a bad Oxygen sensor give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your truck wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

88 dodge dakota

12 means your battery has been dead or disconnected recently, no need to worry about it. I think it was something like 50 starts before it goes away, if at all.
