96 dodge diesel was idLing at 1000 rpms set idle at 780 now engine won't start unless you step on fuel slightly

Automatic transmissions need to have a higher idle speed on the motor because of the load put on them by the transmission. You may have set it too low. 780 might be the idle speed with the transmission in D and the brake set.

I have a 05 Dakota 4.7 v8 6 speed. I get a gascap code and when driving the rpms stay up between shifts and when slowing down they stay up until stopped, then they will drop to 800 rpms at idle. Are these...

They are seperate issues, The gas cap code usaly means the vehical was fueled while running, Or cap is defective, The idle concern could be a vacume leak, Or a faulty idle air controll motor

The engine knocks at higher rpm, only at high rpms

First no matter what check the oil level and then if it's a high rev tapping you need to allow the oil to flow through the engine block to try to coat and settle your valves.

But if it's really " knocking " sounds like your lifters and rocker arms are allowing your piston rods to clatter and that needs to be looked into fast.

95 Dakota has problems idling in the cold.

If its a throttle body, try cleaning the Idle Air Controller (IAC). This is for a carborated engine but its not much different for a throttle body .They get gummed up and wont thet the truck idle properly. The other thing that could be a problem is the MAP sensor. I would start by checking the IAC, its cheap (cost you a bottle of throttle body cleaner) and easy. I read somewhere you can pull the harness off the MAP and if that fixes the problem, then the sensor is bad, but who knows if that is really the problem. When you clean the IAC clean the whole throttle body just to be sure that isnt the problem. Hope that helps.

No Heat in 99 Taurus

Just finished fixing my daughters 1999 taurus heat. It would blow warm only when running down the road. At idle it blew cold. I started with replacing thermostat, and water pump because they are the easier fix. Still did not help. Then I replaced the heater core. A daunting job but not that hard to move the dash slighly out of the way to replace. There is a good write up at After that, heat was better but at idle, it would still blow cool sometimes. Researched and found answer. Park car on the steepest hill you can find with front of car up. Start car and take off reservoir cap. Let car warm up and keep rpms about 1500. After a while the fluid will come running out of the car and all over the place but it will bring air bubbles with it. Reduce rpm, add more fluid and repeat about 3 times. It will make a mess but after that, the heater works perfectly. We get heat long before the temp gage indicates any and it never blows cold unless you lower the temp.

1998 dodge dakota v8 magnum

Sounds like you have idle air contol problem,sounds like you need your intake cleaned .Go to your local parts store and see if they have 3 step intake cleaning kit. 3M makes a kit and so does valvoline. It should contain a can of Throttle body cleaner a bottle of intake cleaner and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner that you will have to add to your fuel tank. Or you can go to your local valvoline express lube and they can perform this service for around $50.
