Sounds like a rocker arm is out of adjustment or one of the rocker arms are worn more than the rest. If you find one loose rocker arm and the rest are tight then the entire rocker assembly will need to be removed and the one rocker arm will have to be replaced. Thats on a V6 and V8 models . Now on the four cylinder you have to remove the timing belt cover,unbolt the timing belt and hold tension on it to keep the belt from jumping off the crankshaft gear. Remove the rocker arm cover and you will have to remove the cam to get to the roller rocker arms. There is alot of work to do to get this job done. If you do not have all the tools to do this with, then it would be better to take the truck to a mechanics shop for repairs. Hope this will help you.

I have a 1995 dodge dakota 4 cyl. and standerd trans. I just replaced the head gasket and it starts and runs great when it is cold but after running for a few min. it stumbles and has low power, it will...


have you done a back pressure test on the catalytic convertor? may have become clogged when the headgasket gave up. normally acts up after vehicle warms up and doesn't set an engine code.

Cylinder #3 or #5 Misfiring, basic Tuneup solves nothing


Well, it could be the coil pack. I assume it has one coil for every one or every two cylinders. Sometimes humidity will cause the coils to arc when they otherwise don't. If one coil serves cylinders 3&5, we might be on to something.

Also, agree that it could be an electronic module -- maybe the electonic ignition module.

One way to check the coils is to spray a liitle water (a mist) onto the coils at night with the engine running (in the dark so the arcs will be more easily seen).

My dakota 96, dodge, has developed a stalling problem. when cold it starts up right away, after it warms up it stalls and sometimes will not restart right away.


Remove the air idle control valve located on the side of the throtttle body it will have (2) torx screws and an electricle plug. remove it clean it with carb or brake cleaner and reinstall. you will run smooth again.

Shifting problems


The transmission/computer is designed not to go into overdrive until it reaches a certain temp and I don't remember what the temp is. Mine does same thing and it has 250,000 miles on it. When you start your truck up do you start it and warm up in neutral? The transmission fluid won't flow unless it is. There is know way to force it to shift into overdrive until it warms to the set temp.

Hope this helps
