Question about 1993 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Wondering what else we need to try: Our truck runs very rough-cuts out and cannot go very fast (maybe 25- tops). We have had a few different people work on it and they have put on new parts. We have put on a new pick-up assembly, new spark plugs & wires (whole tune-up kit), replaced gas lines, changed oil, and most recently replaced coil and wiring to the coil. They also checked the timing, and compression, and adjusted dist. pickup syn. sensor. We have also tried "Heet" in the gas tank. After this last time in the shop, the fellow assured me that it would run "a good long time." It ran well for maybe 5-8 miles. Any advice for us?

Check the catalytic converter on the exhaust. They are bad about getting clogged up on a dodge. If they clog it will make your engine run poorly and have no power due to little or no exhaust flow. Its a pretty common problem.

At speeds of 40mph starts chugging a bit wondering if it could be air filter or coil pack


first thing to try is the fuel filter, if its partly blocked some fuel will pass allowing for some speed, but after more fuel is needed it cant pass fast enough so your car will chug or act like its cutting out, my 94 explorer would run fine up to 35mph, but after that it acted like it didnt have power and even died a few times i changed the fuel filter and the issue went away AGCO Automotive Repair Service Baton Rouge LA Detailed Auto Topics What...

Exceleration issue


Please get a second opinion, I find dealers tend to play dumb, when the know the problem. Ask around, do some looking at recall notices, maybe find a neighborhood independent mechanic. I would go for a tranny service , change filter and add new fluid at oil change store before spending $150, and then pay more for putting it all back.

no, the cat has nothing to do with idle, even if it failed it will only give problems if it fell apart and clogged the system and in that case you wouldnt have any top end power.
As far as why its running rough or getting hot fast someone will need to look at *** to make sure you didnt mess up but the hot issue shouldnt have anything to do with maybe having the timing off.

Sounds like needs a tune up, New spark plugs-wires, could be running on 5 cil. put a new fuel filter on, this helps sometimes. Buy gas treatment at Autozone, you may have water in your gas, run all the gas out and buy gas at a different place than before. Try and get 91 oct. better fuel may help.

2000 LeSabre starts but runs very rough and stalls. After


Sounds like the plugs are not firing hot enough on initial start-up. Try a quick spark plug change, and clean throttle body. The gas being injected, isn't being burned fast enough by the plugs, which causes the car to have a hard start-up. You may try a higher octane gas or Lucas injector cleaner with your usual octane rating. Lucas comes in a very small bottle, and works very well in my opinion.

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
