    The truck idles rough and when your driving down the road and give it full gas pedal at low speeds it will almost stall. Plugs, rotor and distrubutor cap are all new thinking that was the problem in the first place.

Did you properly gap the plugs when you changed them? Improper spark will cause really rough idling at low RPM like that.

It sounds like you need a good tune-up, such as spark plugs and/or wires. They will act up when cold and when warmed by engine temperature will let the engine run smoothly again. And possibly a distributor cap/rotor.

92 dodge dakota stalling,running rough,loss of power


Did you replace the fuel filter when you replaced the pump ?
Was it running rough before the pump was replaced.
Did you replace the cap and rotor too ?
"Sucking a ton of air" could be a vac leak, or the sound of the throttle open when the engine is bogging down.
Is the check engine light on when it is running ?
