1993 Dodge Dakota Problems
On 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8 engines the camshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A failed camshaft position sensor will require replacement.
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.
Engine overheating can result from coolant leaks which are commonly found at the thermostat housing gasket, water pump, heater return tube O-ring at the water pump, intake manifold gasket, and timing cover gasket. Our technicians recommend a complete inspection of the cooling system after any repairs are made to be sure there are no other leaks.

I have had to do the little things, serpentine belt, plugs & wires, cap & rotor, nothing big. I am certainly no mechanic, but have had no problem working on this truck. The engi...
I freakin love this truck. Bought it off my grandpa for $500 summer 07, 116k miles. Now spring '11, almost 150k and engine still running strong- 180hp V6 beats my boyfriend's 410hp supercharged V8 2001 Tundra off the line but he's got me on top speed.

For a truck three months older than me it's taken a lot of abuse and has a ridiculous amount of dents to prove it. The paint has a lot of sun damage as well and it's almost all dull (It used to be a dark green/blue), but it's no surprise as we live in a desert. We to...
