Message:
Can anyone help this rookie Dakota guy? I've owned my 1995 3.9L V6 Dakota with 57,000 miles since March of this year. Whenever I start out in drive with minimal but steady accelerator pedal, 75% of the time, the engine starts to die. There's a long hesitation and then it finally 'catches' and then runs normal. It happens mostly on left turns from a standstill position. Has anyone had this problem? Also, the shifting pattern is weird. It shifts from low to second to drive at very low RPM's. Hardly enough time to get up and running. I've put several cans of injector cleaner through the truck. I installed a new EGR valve and there are no Diagnostic Trouble Codes showing. Any info. would be appreciated. A new PCM? More intake air?

You may want to look into the TPS (throttle position sensor) A repair manual will help you check the voltages for your year truck.

If the TPS checks OK there is a Mod to help throttle response go to :

Then scroll down to :
