1996 Dodge Dakota Q&A

1996 Dodge Dakota Question: knock low rpms 226k has has noise since i bought truck at 179k.

crank pulley wobbles a little. Can timing chain make noise like rod knsock, also does this engine have timing chain slap issues. On a standard trans is crank pulley a hamonic balancer or just pulley? Thanks for any useful information. -
Answer 1
We cant hear it but a mechanic needs to listen to it. With that many miles on it any moving componets are suspect! The harmonic balancer is also a crank pulley or vice versa! -
