Asked by Feb 22, 2016 at 04:05 PM about the 1994 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr Sport Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


I'd look for a vacuum leak...one might use a little carburetor cleaner and with the straw point at the intake gasket...sometimes these will whistle on the suction draw~...anyways the air/fuel mix is interrupted possibly by a leaking intake gasket or vacuum line has cracked or fallen off...again causing the computer to cycle~
