Having problems with your 1995 Dodge Dakota ?
I have just changed the coil,plugs,wires cap and rotor on a 95 dakota 3.9. still the more throttle I give it the more it misses and backfires.It has a bad muffler I need to change. Is there a sensor that can be causing this or can it be in the fuel system?
If it is backfiring it can be caused by the EGR valve stuck open, or you could have burnt exhaust valves.
Dakota 3.9 engine backfire, codes indicated one bank misfire, like p0301 p0303 p0305 , this is bank one, or the po302 p0304 p0306 this is bank 2, replace top oxygen sensor to that bank, sensor is shot out and engine is starving for fuel, you can also test the brown and violet wire to ground , it should have 0 volt, also the ten and white wire, reads 0 on open loop or 5 volts in close loop from pcm. just replace it, less than a tune up for sure no more than $54.00 but do not forget to say tank you..
