Question about 1999 Dodge Dakota
I can get in the truck and drive about 10 miles and it nomally runs fine with no problems. When I get back in the truck it starts fine, no problems. As soon as I give it gas to pull out into traffic is starts back firing and missing. I put the truck in neutral floor it a few times and it's good to go. Sometimes I have to just press the gas pedal to the floor and hold it until it stops. Then it will pick up and go. I've had it in the shop three times and it's still not fixed. I've has two fuel pumps, gas taken taken off and cleaned, new plugs and wire, and distributor cap replaced.
Service engine light must be present with that description!!!!! if so time to stop the GUE$$ work and invest in a OBD 2 scan tool retrieve fault codes and repair it rite first time around.I would also be interested to see how that ignition coil behaves when it warms up get that tested!!!!if you haven't a OBD tool or spark tester invest save large.John
