1991 Dodge Dakota Problems

If the threads strip where the front brake caliper mounts to the steering knuckle, a steering knuckle repair kit is available. A new steering knuckle is not normally necessary.

The distributor pickup plate commonly fails causing intermittent stalling, or the engine may not start (usually when the engine is hot).

Various drivability problems can be caused by vacuum leaks. This engine has plastic tubes that become brittle and crack over time. These tubes can be replaced by normal vacuum hose but be careful when changing the Tee fittings or hose connectors because some have built in restrictor orifices (usually color coded). If the restrictions are missing, drivability problems will most likely result.

I have a 1991 Dodge Dakota Sport 5.2 which has been amazing. I bought it as a demo with 5K miles on it. Local auto parts counter guys laughed at me when they seen me driving it to their business. They said they beat the hell out of it, and did break torque starts with it. I did bring it back to the dealer several times in 91-92 for ticking noises and I found it was just dirty oil in a lift...
