I have a 94 Dodge Dakota. It runs fine for about 5 miles, then runs like it has bad gas for about 6 miles then it runs fine. Any ideas?

Overfull of engine oil?

Ok, I replaced the egr valve and sensor. There is no change, any other ideas?

And it is good on oil.

When it runs bad is it under a load? (like up hill or accelerating). Or just out of the blue. How long has it been doing this. Is it boggey or choppy when the engine runs badly?
