1996 Dodge Dakota low idle then dies

10

Asked by Nov 19, 2016 at 10:40 PM about the 1996 Dodge Dakota

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1996 dodge dakota will sometimes start
right up and idles around 1000 to 700 rpm
but will start dying down to 300rpm and shut
off. It's been idling at 300 rpm for awhile
and will randomly shut off while I stop at a
stop sign or redlight or my truck will start
puttering and try dying on me while I'm
driving on the highway. I can't figure out
the problem can someone help?
