Question about 1998 Dodge Dakota
Hello, Originally the truck was blowing out black smoke under high accelaration, it ran rough not stalling, engine light was on. The truck had recent tune up and i changed the plugs, the 2 oxy sensors were replaced and the intake manifold gaskets. The service engine light came on with 2 codes, lean and bank 1,,,, Once the truck is warmed up it starts to run rough, the exhaust has a strong rich/lean odor. One suggestion that i was givin is to replace the computer. the fuel pump pressure is 47, and the smoke test showed no signs of vacuum leak and i do not see the black smoke, it seems to lack power, not a very smooth acceleration and is poor on gas mileage. I have this posted on fix ya with another 98 dakota with a similiar problem.
Replace the ECT sensor.
And letme know. If you feel any diference. ok.
