This could be anything. Usually when a check engine light comes on it means there is a problem detected by one of the sensors. If the light comes on and goes off it should have stored a problem code in the computer. Take it to your local Autozone and have them scan it and see if there is code showing. If there is no code showing it could be a short in the wiring to the light.

95 dodge dakota back fires above 2000 rpm


A tune-up is always a good idea. Is the system running rich or lean? Any applicable trouble codes? Is it back firing out the exhaust? If so, I got two thoughts, either an exhaust system problem or exhaust valves?

it sounds like you should check the wire harness for the injectors and the glow plugs they are molded into your valve cover gaskets and over time the little tab that holds them together breaks and you get a loose connection you will have to pull the valve covers to check
