    Had a recent tune-up with both of the 0xy sensors replaced, the intake manifold gaskets were also done, the service light comes on and when its warmed up it feels like it has a miss and it runs rough. I have a lean code and bank one code. The exhaust has a strong rich/lean smell. The fuel pump pressure is 47. The smoke test showed no vacuum leaks.

You need to take it to a shop or dodge dealer. If the 02 isn't functioning, that will cause the lean condition. This would also cause the ignition curicuit malfunction because your computer is trying to adjust the timing to compensate for the lean running condition. You could save some money by going to www.craigslist.org and looking for a mobile mechanic in your area who will come to you to fix your truck. Generally it will save you money for the same quality service because they have little to no overhead to charge for compaired to a shop or car dealer.

1995 dodge dakota, 4 cil. Fuel ind. Light no longer works. Can't find the right fuse. Not 13, 14 or 15. Fuel gauge doesn't work either. Now what? Gas math is 4 miles per dollar.


fuel gauge not working probably because the sending unit in the tank is not sending- next to go will be the fuel pump-fuel pump and sending unit are one thingy in your gas tank-cheers Denny

I Own 98 dodge Dakota check Engine light, code PO 442 Evap Emission Control System Leak (small). Gas fill pipe is rusted, Should flapper hold back air with gas cap removed?


No the flap inside the fuel filler pipe is just an anti theft device to make it more difficult to siphon fuel out of the tank. The most likely cause for the code it the fuel cap itself. If you don't get the gas cap tight after you fuel up, it can set a computer code and turn on the Check Engine Light. After you check to make sure the cap is on tight, clear the engine code and see if it comes back on. If it does then have the fuel cap tested to make sure that it doesn't have a vaccuum leak.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO ASK YOUR DEALERSHIP IF THERE IS A COMPUTER FLASH AVAILABLE; BUT IT IS TRUE THAT THE MOTOR IN YOUR TRUCK IS NOT GOOD ON GAS, ADDED IT IS A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE. IT DOES SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE A LEGITIMATE TRANSMISSION PROBLEM.
