2004 Dodge Dakota Q&A

2004 Dodge Dakota Question: How can i fix the water problem in my truck motor?

Truck hit a small cement pole and busted front fender, radiator and waterpump. Everything bought and changed. When waterpump was put in water was going into motor. Need to know if I do a flush and change motor oil will this fix the problem? -
Answer 1
You may have cracked the timing cover, which is where the water pump is mounted. Try flushing out your oil and putting in new oil, but if it reoccurs, then you may have a cracked timing cover. -
