Question about 1996 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

My 1996 Dakota starts, but wont run. Fuel pump pressure holds 40psi. If I hold the gas pedal down it runs, but as soon as I let up it stalls.

    Fuel filter was our first thought. The only filter is the "sock" on the fuel pump itself. Was looking for some more input before dropping the tank, etc.

    It was the Idle Air Controller.

MY truck is fuel injected what would make it so i have to hold down gas pedal to finally get it to start then die


Sounds like you have some injector problems or the fuel pressure regulator. If the check engine light is not on, I would look for something allowing extra fuel into the engine.

I am having a fuel system issue, 1988 Dodge Dakota, 3.9l, 5spd manual


may not be a fuel issue. maybe senor problem. first check the map sensor and make sure you have good engine vacuum going to the map sensor.if the map test good , check the tps voltage.

Fuel system.....all of a sudden nothing , won't start. not getting fuel. Fuel pump is making noise....will start, then stalls, no smell of fuel. Holding gas pedal down, nothing, no smell of fuel.....fuel...


I once worked on a Buick that did this. Try spraying starting fluild in the throttle body. If it starts and runs until it burns the fluid off, replace the fuel filter. If it still doesn't run after this, remove the ignition control module (found under the coil where all your spark plug wires come from, or under the cover on the 4-cylinder model) and have it tested at Auto Zone. If the 'lamp' circuit in the module doesn't work, the fuel injectors won't fire. The PCM uses the reference signal from this module to pulse the fuel injectors in the correct order.

1996 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 L it will stall


it looks like your engine is having an over rich fuel mixture maybe, thatswhy when you press the pedal to the floor it starts becouse you allow lots of air to help clean the mixture while cranking, also you should have black smoke in the tailpipe until it cleans up and runs fine, i think youre having a leak in one our more injectors you should check them first for proper seal under pressure these is done in an injector test machine, second it may be a defective map sensor these trucks some times have a bad map and dont give a MIL (malfunction indacator lamp) and last but more rare to be is a blocked fuel pressure regulator chek fuel pressure it should be between 38 and 45 psi and it shoul hold these pressure when you turn off the engine if pressure drops fast its injector seal problems or fuel pump check

Initially starts fine, runs fine, then stalls at the first stop.


This is a fuel pump issue. i would replace it and the lines as well.also, a minor tune up wouldn't hurt as well. wires plugs distributor cap points etc...

Stalling in idle


check for a vacuum leak and make sure ur o2 sensor is plugged in. the fuel filter is easy to check its on the passenger side in front end under the alternator. mine has 3 hoses contected to it. disconnect hoses and pull out the filter. blow air into the filter if its clogged u wont be able to blow air through or whatever has it clogged will come out. its like $3.99 for a new one. it could also be the fuel regulator sensor if it feels like it wants to stall out when you push on the gas to start going.
