I have a '98 Dodge Durango that sounds like it is running out of gas. It spits and sputters and dies. Pushing in the gas pedal to rev the engine does not help. Durango eventually dies. I have had the fuel pump replaced and am leaning now towards maybe the throttle sensor or even the computer module. Any thoughts?

How are the spark plugs, wires rotor and cap ? Have you added an fuel injector cleaner to a full tank of gas ? Is the gas in the tank old, if so replace it with new. Have your battery load tested and check if the alternator is giving out over 14 volts like it should, our Durangos need their battery to be at its best or you can get all sorts of problems Could also be in need of a throttle body clean up. Start with these cheaper things before you go to the more expencive ones.
