Why does the check engine light not stay on continuously on a 1992 Dodge Dakota if it is showing a diagnostic code of 27?

hey dude call up advance auto parts and give them the code and they will look the code number up in the book. i know it because i work there and use the book everyday. goodluck Answer

I own an 89 Dodge Dakota and from my experiences and research the reason that the check engine light does not stay on is because it goes into what is called a "limp in mode" which helps get you to a service station. If you have a Haynes manual or can get one, foudn at NAPA and Advacned Auto, you can look up the code fairly easy. I know that on mine the check engine light has never stayed on but the computer stores the code until it is cleared. I hope I have been helpful.

There are two diagnostic connection ports, there is a diagnostic connection port below the dashboard on the drivers side. A second diagnostic port can be found in the engine compartment on the firewall.

It is possible that the engine is running roughly because of a clogged fuel filter. Many times, that will not register a diagnostic code.

There is no difference in a 1995 dodge dakota with a 3.9 v6 engine and a 2000 dodge dakota with a 3.9 v6 engine and you can exchange the newer engine with the older one.

A 1991 Dodge Dakota will have either a V6 or a V8 engine.

The service engine light (spanner) is indicating that the computer has detected a "fault". Use an engine diagnostic scanner to find out what the computer has detected. My guess is, if you repair whatever the computer has detected, the problem will go away.

The engine diagram for a 1989 Dodge Dakota be can be found in the Dakota service manual. The manual is available through most auto parts, or possibly at the public library.

Yes. A 3.9 v6 engine from a 1995 Dodge Dakota will fit into a 2000 Dodge Dakota with a 3.9 v6 engine. You will have to swap the intake and exhaust manifolds along with all sensors and fuel rail though.

Dodge does not have 4.3L engine. A 3.7L was not used in a 2000 Dakota. So no.Dodge does not have 4.3L engine. A 3.7L was not used in a 2000 Dakota. So no.

A Dodge Dakota SLT has a 4.7L V8 flex-fuel engine and has 210 HP stock but some classes of the Dakota have a 3.6L or 3.7L V6 engine. The SLT has a 4.7L V8. The 4.7L in a 2001 Dakota is not flex fuel. The V6 option would be the 3.9L

It is the port, where a diagnostic machine can be hooked up. The diagnostic will read codes from your vehicles computer. For instance if your check engine light comes on, you can plug the diagnostic machine into the data port and it will tell you why the check engine light came on so that you can get it fixed.

A car owner should know the location of the diagnostic port in their car. The diagnostic port in a 1994 Wrangler would be in the engine compartment, near the firewall.

Go to auto zone(free) if its just an engine diagnostic (engine light...etc.) (plug might be behind ashtray/earlier models)

You can run a diagnostic test for the knock sensor, on your 2005 Chevy avalanche, by hooking the engine up to a diagnostic tester.

The Diagnostic port, looking from front of vehicle, is located on the drivers side rear corner of the engine compartment

Diagnostic port is either under steering wheel or near the engine antifreeze line (under the hood).
