I have a couple of strange questions/problems with my 3.9 Dakota 2001
Starting-It seems to take 4-7 seconds of cranking to start,I have a ranger
that starts within 2-3 seconds of turning the key.Is this just the norm with
the 3.9 engine? I am just used to things turning over quicker.I changed the
plugs and wires yesterday,which were quite worn hoping it would fix the
problem but its still the same,I really dont know if its a problem or if I
am just impatient and used to other vehicles.
Another thing,in reverse,when backing up slowly,the engine seems to run
rough and even has stalled a few times.Doesnt happen in forward,only in
reverse,like the idle isnt high enough to keep the engine running.
Any ideas or comments?
