So sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. It's been a nightmare for the last several months. I don't have a complete list of everything that has been done or replaced on the Dakota. I finally got it back from the mechanic (took longer than I would have liked, but with limited funds, had to wait). It finally passed the stupid "emissions test" we have to endure here.
Anyway, the problem I'm having with it is, when I try to accelerate quickly, it cuts out. Recently, I took it for about 20 miles on the freeway. When I got near 60 MPH, it started cutting out, and the tach read 3800. When I backed off, and stayed around 55-58, it ran good. After it sat for about 5 hours, I did the 20 miles again. That time, it did 60 without cutting out, and the tach read 2400-2700. The computer was one of the things that was replaced.
What is your thought about what else we can try, to get it straightened out? My friend replaced the fuel hose (the larger one) behind the throttle body, but it still cuts out.
Sorry this is so long. I would really appreciate your help. I'm a senior citizen on a really limited income, and I've spent all my savings on this truck.
Thank you very much.
