Question about 1992 Dodge Dakota
At cold start truck runs rough and backfires through exhaust for about 5 to 10 minutes and then smooths and runs great
Posted by Anonymous on
Backfire is usually caused by a timing problem or maybe a fuel problem.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like you need a good tune-up, such as spark plugs and/or wires. They will act up when cold and when warmed by engine temperature will let the engine run smoothly again. And possibly a distributor cap/rotor.

Sounds like the alternator isn't running good, have you tested this? Perhaps it isn't sparking cosistently and the loss of power would be explained if it isn't kicking out enough power.

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.

if the code said it was running rich then your fuel injectors could be dripping fuel into one of the cylinders. try cleaning your injectors. if that dont work then it could be one of your EGR valves, check for that. and check for fuel filter. One of those has to be the problem. most likely its one of your EGR valves. check it out!
