Question about 1989 Dodge Dakota 2WD
First thing i would check before getting in too deep is the fuel filter. If that's not it then check the fuel pump. Main thing is to make sure there is no shortage of gas to the engine. had the same problem out of my 89 dakota a few years back and turned out that the fuel pump had fallen apart in the gas tank and the only reason that the engine was even getting gas was due to the vaccum that the engine was creating.

Unless there are some other underlying issues, they may be there still unless you clear the codes and turn off the check engine light..or else in the distributor itself you will see two long metal pieces at the top..they should be screwed to the distributor housing. there should be two individual pieces..those are your coils..one is your "run pickup coil" and the other is your "start pick up coil" if your run pick up coil is bad then a tune up won't accomplish much..you will need to take that to your mechanic to have it diagnosed properly..if faulty, replace. if not, then perhaps its a fuel issue or bad alternator.
