2000 Dodge Dakota Dying in Rain
I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota, V6 Quad Cab- 105,000 miles.
I recently had my catalytic converter replaced and about 3
hours after being out of the shop, I drove through a puddle
and it died.
It's been about 4 months now, I haven't been able to fix it
due to financial issues but now we have a baby on the way
and it needs to be addressed.
My Dakota starts to choke (feels like my tires are stopping
in mid rotation for a quick second for multiple seconds-
repeatedly) when it's raining, and the RPM starts to drop
and it rapidly does a chugging motion when I'm around
other vehicles going the same speed as me. As if the water
flying all over the road is causing my truck to put out. Also
if another car goes through a puddle and splashes my
truck, it will die, same if I go through a puddle myself.. I try
to dodge them as much as I can.
I'm trying to figure out if anyone knows what could possibly
be the problem? I feel like the mechanic who fixed my
catalytic converter didn't put it back together right or left
something out..I don't know. I'm learning as I go.
Thank you in advance!!
