A common problem with these engines is a leaky intake gasket which sucks in outside air spray carb cleaner around intake base see if engine idle increases .most likely this is your problem

95 dodge dakota back fires above 2000 rpm


A tune-up is always a good idea. Is the system running rich or lean? Any applicable trouble codes? Is it back firing out the exhaust? If so, I got two thoughts, either an exhaust system problem or exhaust valves?

1992 dodge dakota starting problem


The first thing you need is to have the unit scanned. Check things like the baro sensor,map sensor,coolant temp. and the TP sensor.Also check your fuel pressure,volume and injector spray pattern. I think you will have found your problem,but if not hit me back with engine size and any codes,Good Luck.
