Question about 1987 Dodge Dakota
Wow, to make this short. Had the transmission rebuilt in 2004 and replaced the power train, so this could be transmission issues. It has been driving fine for years and then 2 days ago, without warning, I stepped on the gas as normal to go through a light, and there was NO power, was like I wasn't stepping on the gas at all and then it finally kicked in a drove for about 50 feet and bogged down again. I cannot afford 3000.00 to rebuild the transmission again, we did check the fluids, the transmission fluid was a bit low, but not empty and no apparent leaks.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.
