How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? If engine issue and not tranny, I'd check for a blockage of some kind, fuel--air--exhaust. Something of that nature. Check throttle position sensor.

Which End Of Of Fuel Filter Connects To Manuel Pump On 1987 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl 3.9 ?

The filter should have three hoses. There should be an arrow painted on the filter showing the direction of fuel flow.
And you should be able to blow in one end and the air come out the other if direction is correct.
The line to the pump should be on the end without the extra hose.

Where is the fuel filter for a 1987 Dodge dakota and the fuel pump.

The fuel filter is under the hood, center, upper engine area, above intake assembly, mounted in fuel line.

The fuel pump should be in the tank or on top of the tank. Trace your fuel line back once you find your filter and you will find it.

Fuel pump location on 87 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V-6

Should be throttle body injected,if so in the gas tank. If it's carburated it's on the passenger side of the engine about mid-way down the front on the block,under the alternator.
