Question about 1992 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Initially starts fine, runs fine, then stalls at the first stop.

Initial startup is fine anbd the truck will run fine. If I take a short trip and stop (going to the convenience store, gas, etc) It wont restart without pressure on the gas pedal. Once it's running again, it will stall any time I accelerate and then slow down (like when sitting in slow moving traffic). Kicking it into neutral when slowing down or stopping will usually keep it running. HELP!!!

This is a fuel pump issue. i would replace it and the lines as well.also, a minor tune up wouldn't hurt as well. wires plugs distributor cap points etc...

WONT RESTART AFTER SHORT TRIPS AND ENGINE HEATS TO NORMAL


If you can duplicate the event in your driveway, you can check fuel pressure and spark at the plugs when it won't start to narrow down the possible causes.

On short trips wont start after cut off now going down highway just cutoff and wont restart....?????


Your main power relay is the likely culprit that's bad. Have it checked and replaced if necessary. The no start after short trips was a clear sign of your main relay going bad.

Wont idle but runs fine if giving gas


do this.
Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Won't re-start after stopping for gas/rest during road trip.


This problem sounds like you have a fuel pump over heating and shuts of the relay. When it cools off the relay kicks in and you can restart your vehicle. Replace your fuel pump and the problem will go away.

Sputters on initial startup and again also 15-20 minutes after shutoff and restart


fuel pump, clogged fuel injectors, bad gas.... could also be a timing problem among other things depending on what you mean by sputtering.... my advice find a shop that will diagnose the car for free( like AAMCO). hope this helps :)

Engine over revs at initial start up without touch accelerator. Shut down and restart, sometimes problems goes away.


it all depends on what yr the ford is b/c my grandmas car dose it a lot when you go to shut the car off make sure it is in park and it is in a idle then when you start it it should be fine if not go under the hood and see if it accelator can be lossened a littel bit if so it will save you on gas and the idle wont be as high. if that dose not work then dont worrie about it it wont harm the car any and dont pump the gas pedall while the car is not running
