I bought a 1987 Dodge Dakota V6 2 months ago. Had a stalling problem since the get go. Changed the fuel filter, seemed to fix it for a month. Then it started again so we changed it again. Now the problem is it still stalls out as soon as you throw it into drive,
Since we bought it we have changed a lot. To try to fix the problem we have changed
Fuel Filter 2 times
Still having the problem. You can drive the car in reverse no problem. Will sit an idle beautiful. Will REV RPMS fine. As soon as you throw it in drive it stalls.
Had a mechanic friend come out and look at it. Claims its a ignition coil ballast resistor. We pulled the part, pictures included. CAN NOT locate the part. NO ONE sells it. HELP! Do we have the right name? Is it really this part? Where can I find this part?
Truck is beautiful. No rust, paint is good. Engine/Tranny are great. Only 120 thousand miles on it! Do not want to but at the point of scrapping the truck. Help
