Put everything on my 1992 Dakota, except computer on the fender. finally put this computer it plugs in on fender and fixed it. The first computer I put on was no good, bought from O'reillys for $200., but the second one fixed it. Easy to install, just unplug and plug in new one

Sounds to me like your over fueling. Are you sure you have the map connected correctly. Make sure with the engine running you have vacuum. A plugged vacuum line can cause your problems. Make sure no pins are bent in the connector. Listen with the engine running for a large vacuum leaks.

Depending on youre mechanical ability you can spend 20 bucks for a rebuild kit on your carburator.

There tends to be many different potential issues with youre description of the problem. My best advice for you at this time, would be get the carburator re-built and check youre fuel pump/fuel filter.

But you can always go to youre local shop and get a free estimate.

Started having hard starts a shaking in reverse gear loosing power wanting to stall on hills it smooths out and will run fine for a little bit she acts like she's not getting enough gas?


My Buick did that and I changed the spark plugs and plug wires and it corrected the problem. Hope this works for you. I had a couple of wires that shorted out when you were under power going up a hill. If you change the wires yourself only take one wire off at a time and replace with a new one and you will not get upset because you get the wires in the wrong plugs. Its hard to correct once you take them all off at once.

.Engine stalls, won't idle, bucks at 3700rpm


Sounds like mass airflow sensor to me or your timing jumped. Probably high miles too, eh? Could possibly be voltage regulator but I highly doubt it.

1996 Pathfinder stalls when momentum or gravity forces gas to front of tank.


Technically it shouldn't happen.
The sock filter for the pump is about a quarter inch off the bottom of the tank. As long as there is a couple of gallons of gas in the tank it should not matter what the truck is doing.
Its possible the filter is damaged or not in the right place, or the sending unit is off and you have less gas than you think.
I should also tell you running the truck with less than a quarter tank of fuel is tough on the pump and will shorten the life of it. The pump uses gasoline for lubrication and to keep it cool.

97 dakota 3.9 no pulling power


When you say going up a hill are you wide open throttle? Does the bucking occurs at 5300 RPM? If you are you have reached the fuel shut off limits before the transmission can shift,This happen if there is a high demand on the alternator, The solution for this is a redesign of the govenor pressure sensor on the transmission.But before you even decide this is a solution make sure the throttle valve cable is properly adjusted,(this is the downshift cable)

1987 Dodge Raider started cutting out going up hill. At first it would just pull back and buck back and forth. It never had a problem on the flat. Now it has a problem on the flat too and completely stalls...


Fuel pressure from the fuel pump needs to be checked,it needs to be 4 to 7 pounds psi,also check the fuel filter,and the carburetor.Has the engine been tuned up,new plugs and plug wires ,and cap,and rotor?Check the vacuum advance ,or spark advance if it has this option.
