Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 140K+ miles
Could someone please give me a hand, bought a 98 dakota a few months back and now I am having mechanical problems with it. V6 stnd and in a ll gears it will lose power and backfire when it wants, just tuned it up plugs/wires.
Took it to AutoZone and had "check engine light" scanned and it came up with code P0443 which almost everywhere online says P0443 EVAP Canister Purge Control Solenoid.
I bought a purge control solenoid from AutoZone and installed it myself, but still having same problem and the check engine light stayed on. Placed a little soap and water on 2 rubber hoses that connect to solenoid as far down as I could, but could not detect any leaks.
have the same problem?
