1999 Dodge Dakota Problems

Multiple Coolant Leaks

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.

Exhaust Manifold Bolts May Break

3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8
Exhaust manifold bolts commonly break, exhaust manifold gaskets should be replaced and replace bolts as needed.

Rerouting Ignition Coil/Spark Plug Wires Can Solve Misfire/Surge Problems

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8, rerouting the ignition coil wire and spark plug wires can help solve a misfire and/or surge problem that occurs at approximately 45 mph. A service bulletin was published that outlines the specifics of the repair. It states the rerouting procedure should be performed before other repairs are done for misfires, surging or spark knock.

Chrysler Recalls 1997-2001 Models Because the Air Bag System May Become Disabled

Chrysler is recalling certain 1997-2000 Dodge Dakota, 1998-2000 Dodge Durango, and 1997-2001 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because sound deadening material inside the steering wheel may become dislodged and interfere with the clock spring ribbon, which can cause an open electrical circuit. An open circuit in the clock spring will illuminate the air bag warning light and disable the air bag system. With the air bag system disabled, there is an increased chance of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clock spring to correct this concern.

Chrysler Recalls Certain 1997-2000 Dodge Dakotas for Possible Loss of Braking Efficiency

Vehicles may not have adequate clearance between the left front brake tube and the power steering hose, which can cause the brake tube to wear and a brake fluid leak. Loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the brake tube and power steering hose for wear and replace them if necessary. A power steering bracket will be installed to insure adequate clearance between the brake pipe and power steering hose.

good mid size truck....
I bought this truck (3.9 V-6) with 74,000 miles several months ago and have put 6,000 miles on it and absolutely no problems. It is the best truck I have ever owned and use it just about every day. The previous owner did all the maintenance so I should be able to enjoy it for a long time.
