Question about Dodge Dakota
I have been doing this for 35 years and what u are describing is an EGR problem, remove the valve and use a piece of aluminum can to block the flow and reinstall valve, if problem goes away then the EGR system is malfunctioning, the code is there for a reason, which by the way u should posted or a complete and more accurate diagnosis. also replace the fuel filter and clean the idle air control valve passages by doing the following.
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
