Engine Stalls while dr in bing or idleing

Asked by Guru66XR4 Apr 03, 2020 at 06:58 AM about the 1998 Dodge Dakota SLT Club Cab 4WD

Question type: General

I have a 98 Dodge Dakota Sport with a 3.9 I noticed
that it it lacked power the higher up I went in
elevation which was telling me that O2 sensors
weren't reading properly and my check engine light
would come on so one day I'm driving it and it
backfired really loud sound like a gunshot after the
fourth time that it happened I noticed a rattling
noise coming from underneath the truck right away
I knew my cat was coming apart 2 explosions later
the rattling stop so I decide to cut the cat out and
when I did the honeycomb inside was completely
gone once I got the cat off I grabbed ahold of their
muffler pipe and check it and you can hear all the
bits and pieces of the honeycomb got shot into the
muffler so I stuck a straight pipe and bypass the
cat started the truck up still stalling I pulled the
muffler out put a new one in truck has all sorts of
power no longer stalls at idling or while driving so
there is to fix to the problem believe it or not but
check engine light is no longer on and I don't even
have a catalytic converter in my truck to all you
folks out there with Dakota Problem Like Mine
here's the solution
