My Dakota 87 engine stumbles and sometimes stalls. I do have leaks, oil engine and gearbox and when starts to stumble I hear some noise like cracking metal and then loses power. This happens when I try to reach the top of a slope.

Start with a full tune, check for any vacuum leaks and run a scan for any unresolved fault codes, the noise may be oil on the hot exhaust.

Problem fixed with a full tune up. I had an insufficient electric power feed. I replaced ignition coil, spark plug wires set, spark plugs and some replacements in the distributor.
Now, my Dodge Dakota Pick Up truck is running like new. Thanks mhpautos.
