I posted my problem on 8-14-08 under someone else with similiar problems, origianally the truck blew out a lot of black smoke on heavy acceleration. The truck had recent tuneup,fuel injection serviced, 2 oxy sensors replaced, intake manifold gaskets replaced, the fuel pressure is 47, the smoke test indicated no leaks, 2 codes came up 1 was the lean code the other bank 1. The truck runs rough once warmed up and I do not notice any more smoke. The fuel mileage seems to be horrible. So far someone had advised to replace computer.......
BEFORE TO REPLACE THE COMPUTER.
Replace the Engine Temperature sensor. ""
That work with the Computer " Normally 2 wires"
The sensor with a Single wire is for the GACE.
This not afect the engine Performance..
REMEMBER 2 wires Tenperature sensor.
Normally Located BESIDE of the Thermostat.
The same of the Engine water outlet.
After that Let me know .
Don't Replace the Computer until I give you a few TEST after this one. OK....

You're not going to get a satisfactory answer to your problem. In 1996, Dodge (and most manufacturers) went to the ODBII standard to be in compliance with Federal emissions standards. That means that the 1998 engine will have to be an engine only in your 1993 Dakota. No multiport fuel injection with a PCM to regulate injector pulse, ignition, timing, etc. Or anything else that is controlled by the PCM (air conditioning, etc).
Your options are to connect what works from your 1993 engine wiring harness, and replace any items that have no connection. Or you can try to adapt your 1993 truck to the 1998 engine harness, and use all the goodies that came on the 1998 engine. But you are going to need the expertise of someone VERY familiar with both generations of Dakotas. Good luck.
Greg, you may have to transfer everything from donor truck to make the swap work tranny , computers, wire harness, fuse/relay center etc. Check the attached links,forum for Dakota engine swaps,instruction and guides, Good luck

When it does this you need to check if you have voltage ( spark ) going to the end of the spark plug wire, but it sound to me like your pick up coil is going bad, pick up coil sit under the distributor cap under the distributor rotor same size as distributor assembly ( black ) cheap$$, good luck, hope this was very helpful.
Under hood next to master brake cylinder.it dos sound like a clutch / or clutch fluid problem / there will be a black rubber in it that you have to remove to add fluid / it is round / hope this helped Good Day.
take the postive side off the battery for about 3-seconds and put back on if the light comes back on and you have a autozone near you they will check it for free so you know what else you have to do to repair you truck wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

All dodge distributors rotate clockwise.
look at your distributor cap while standing on the driver's side of the vehicle. Start at number 1, which is labelled on the cap, and go clockwise
I had a similiar problem, found the solution there. It was the wiring harnes on the drivers side under the hood, just above the wheel well. there are a cluster of wires in a bundle. I unpacked the bundle carefuly and sure enough the were two or three wires all coroded, had wite powder from corosion. repaired the connections and bingo. I posted details at dodgeforums.com. browse around there. I posted pictures as well. this is a common problem.
