truck running rough in town

Asked by Aug 25, 2014 at 09:12 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2003 Dodge Dakota 6cyl runs good on the highway but acts like it has water in the gas when starting and stopping in town.  If I put it in neutral it runs fine but when I put it back in drive it still runs bad.  Some times its so bad I can't tell if it's even running.  I tried dry gas and that didn't work.  i also found a spit vacuum line and fixed that.  seemed to help some but after about 20 miles i'm back where i started.

Look for more vaccum leaks. Replace the old vaccum hoses.
