Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Missing, rough idle

Well...we have an 88 Dakota, 3.9. She's a little rusty but when it runs it runs like a champ. Getting it to run is the hard part. We recently replaced the fuel lines and had it running good there for a while, now its back to stalling at every stop again and idles terrible. idk what else to do im runnin gout of ideas. keep in mind all these things have been replaced: The fuel pump & filter, throttle position sensor, idle speed control valve, distributor cap, rotor button, fuel lines.

My 91 Dakota starts hard and runs rough for a while and the check engine light stays on (no one around here has an analyzer for this year). After running a few miles you can shut it off and start it back...


Probably you have a lean fuel mixture for cold start up and running, but performs normal when the engine has reached operating temperature. So check all items responsible for fuel mixture such as fuel pressure and flow, air leaks ( use a smoke machine for this) choke system ( if carburetted) , engine coolant temp sensor.

Hard to start and rough idle


Best thing is to get the truck scanned for any DTC, Auto Zone scans for free and can help you pin point the cause of your miss fire. It could be running lean due to dirty injectors, so injector cleaner in the gas tank may help after a few days of running the cleaner through the system. It may just be time for a tune up, spark plugs and wire change ect. Could even be a dirty Air mass flow sensor that could be causing the miss fire. 
Have it scanned to save you some time and money and most garage now will scan for around $15.00 now. Always call around for the best price when getting you car or truck scanned, most places have the scanner and would want you business if you decide to have them work on it.
Good luck and hope this helps.

88 dodge dakota has rough idle and stalls at slow down.


Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.

Locate you computer (right front kick panel) and tap on it with a pen while the car idles... Also flex it back and forth with your hands to see if the car runs rough or quits... You may need a new one.
