Hey guys, i just scooped up a 1990 dodge dakota, 2wd, 3.9l it is in great shape, but doesn't run, it gets fire, and when gas is poured into the "carb" it runs, i checked several things, and figures id make a list so it would stay organized.
THINGS I CHECKED:
-the famous fusible link/splice problems-seems to be fine.
-made sure the gas tank has gas,
-Electrical connections to the gas tank, *i used a test light to check the wires* there is only one hot wire out of the 5 (moves the gas gauge) to the electrical connections to the tank, id think there should be more than one,
and thats about it, the p.o said he tried to jump it off and it would never start, im assuming when he tried to jump it it could have messed something up? on my dads car he went to jump it and screwed the fuel sending unit, so I'm kinda lost, I'm thinking maybe the ecm? or what do you all think? i know you guys know your stuff! thanks in advance!
