Could be an idle air control valve, that's the device that controls fuel-injected vehicles like your 95 dodge dakota to regulate the idle speed of your engine. It's controlled by the engine's computer, it's a bit complicated so can consult this for more info, hope it helps. In any case, i'd have a trusted mechanic do the work to be sure. Good luck.

Before anything, I would go down to autozone and have them pull the codes for you. This will help point you in the right direction.

As I have found with my Honda, A lot of times a gunked up throttle body can cause erratic running and throw false codes, so I would start by cleaning everything up
