    When driving at a constant speed on the highway, the RPM's well rev really high. When I let off the gas, the RPM's decrease back to normal.

    Is the miss-fire monitor turning on the check engine light? If not the problem may fell like a misfire but iws another isuue like lean fuel, check your codes, any Kragen or chain parts store does this for free. Get back to me with the codes if any.

Poor gas milage?


Thinking you are getting poor gas milage,Your engine is running smooth,no misses,Engine runs smooth while accelerating up a hill, Still poor gas milage, Check your tire pressure. I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 4.3 Ltr. Auto, loaded. I have just over 154000 miles on it,I change my fluids every 5000 miles. Summer driving milage got real bad. I drive a Blazer hard. I tow a 16ft trailor usally loaded to the top with wood. Tires get hot in the summer, while in the winter, they stay mostly cool. Always check your air pressure.Most vehicals are equipted with radials now days, So if you think a tire looks low, check it, Usally they low. Usally in the winter months, nobody checks tire pressure. It really does make a difference. I went from 17.2 MPG to 19.5 MPG, while pulling the same trailor loaded with wood. I cut my own wood then stack it in my trailor to sell. I have Good Year Wranglers size: P235/75R/15 I just replace these with new ones. The old ones are going on my trailor. Counted milage on tires are 65000 Miles. Tires were rated at 40000 miles, Under normal use.

My 1995 dodge v10 just quit while running driving it. It started up but would barley run. t would not move. seemed to be starving for fuel. Then quit . The next day the truck started right up and I was...


I once had a 302 ford van that ran really bad going up a hill and I thought the transmission was dying. Turned out that my catylitic converter had broken apart and clogged so the truck wasn't exhausting at all. This will make a vehicle hard start and run bad, so make sure you feel the exhaust for pressure. Seems silly, I know but I've been there.

I can't get the driver side rear seat in my 2009 dodge dakota to fold down. It has worked fine for a year but it seems to be locked up. I can't find a release latch etc. I note another user had the same...


The seats are equipped with an "inertia lock mechanizm" Under normal conditions it is not necessary to "unlock" or "release" anything to tilt the seat back forward. The seat is designed to lock only during hevy braking or other condition like parked on a steep hill, where the gravitational pull will cause the inertia mechanism to lock. Sometimes this mechanism gets stuck and must be released manually. There should be a lever on the seat back to do this. (See Picture)
This is covered in your Owner's Manual. If you do not have an Owner's Manual for your truck, you can get one HERE.

Dodge 2500 it seems backfire and misses.


Some of the things that I would consider are a plugged PCV valve, a vacuum leak, a cracked distributor cap, or a faulty voltage regulator. I would also check the condition of the ignition coil. And even though the check engine light is not on, I would have the vehicle scanned to see if any fault code(s) are stored in the computer. (Never trust a light to not be out)Hope this helped and good luck.
