Customer Question
2006 dodge Dakota. Intermittent check...
2006 dodge Dakota. Intermittent check engine light. When it's on truck runs but has little power and poor acceleration. Seems like a cat or o2 sensor to me. Always happens when I start the truck and nothing happens. Turn the key to the off position and turn on again and the truck starts right up but the check engine light comes on and the poor performance starts. Park the truck and come back later it starts and runs fine. Never know when it will happen

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Can you use a scan tool and tell me the codes that are stored?

No I don't have a scan tool and napa and o'rilys won't scan it here in hawaii
Customer reply replied 10 days ago
Sorry can't call
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 days ago

Without knowing the codes, the best anyone can do is guess.

Do you have a friend that may have a scan tool?

No, doesn't look like you can help me then. I was trying to avoid a trip to the dealership but guess that will be needed
Dodge Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 10 days ago

Unfortunately, with the info I have, I would have to guess and that would be a poor answer for you to pay for.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
