2000 dodge dakota 3.9 dies and doesnt hold rpms ?

Asked by Mar 15, 2018 at 05:12 PM about the 2000 Dodge Dakota

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck isnt holding the rpms, and after about 45
seconds it dies, but if i put it into reverse it just dies
immediately. I’ve replaced the fuel pump, the tps, the IAC,
the spark plugs and wires, distributor cap, rotar button,
and just today the MAP sensor, and it still isnt fixed. Any
suggestions on what the problem is ?
