Check and make sure o-rings are good inside where fuel injector sits in, if ok check injector pulsation at injector harnness with noid-lite while cranking engine. If both ok more then likely bad fuel injector

My 1991 dodge dakota v6 2 barrel is using way to much gas 150mi per 16 gal tank what is the cause

check for fuel leaks. from the gas tank, to the fuel lines, to the carb. i assume its an electronic throttle body 2 barrel. i have seen those leak internaly from the inside of the carb/throttle body causing exsess fuel to be used. you could also have a very bad fuel/air ratio going on there. could be bad o2 sensors. but i would start with the leaking fuel first.

I have an '89 dakota that misfires when it warms up, i have replaced the distributor, wires, plugs, coil and resistor.... what else could it be?

Have you considered the throtle body injector? If the injector is not spraying a fine mist this will cause plugs to foul out and you will get the symptom you describe. The ERG valve on the back of the motor may be anothe cause during warm up operation. These usually plug up with carbon and do not work when you 100k miles or more.

Make sure you used good quality wires and plugs (not platnium, in these ones).

These are good engines. Even though fuel system has been upadated over the years, the gas mileage was great on these old birds. Not like the 17 mpg on the new generation dakota's today.

2005 dodge dakota idles high especially in park. rpms never go to 0 until truck is turned off. Tried throtle body lube did not help. Also when put truck in drive it takes a sec to engage

Not sure how long you've had the problem, I would check the spark plugs and air filter first, both items that are easy and not too expensive to replace.

Good luck

S10 has very high idle when cold and sticks to the gas when warm

you need to replace the throtle body controll sensor. Also you may want to make sure all your linkage from the pedal to the throtle body is cleaned and lubed correctly. While playing in this direct area. Your throtle body is only 4 bolts away. Why not get some carb cleaner and get to know your truck just a litle more.

If this is a carborator, then you need to turn my warmup idle down. there are 2 sets of idles on carborators. the one to warm up the engine, automatic choke or pin settings. Get a Chilton, find out which idles pin is for what. and play a litle bit.

I think you have a throtle body so I would also check the automatic air intake sensor. It could be going bad. Check your filter and make sure its clean.

hope all this helps.
