Just bought this truck in Nov..has 44,000 miles currently. When I shift from 2nd to 3rd (automatic) it hesitates. When I put some gas on it going up a hill almost stopped and made a sueeling noise. Is it the transmission? Really pissed!

i can be driving and truck just cuts off,low idle also,and pull over and it fires back up.and sometimes check engine light comes on .no codes.if it gets up to 3000 rpm ,it cuts off,,help?

headlights seem to re- aim themselves

this happens when truck is off or on.

been finding alot of water n driverside floor only dont know where its comming from

starting problem no spark at coil where do i look next

After truck starts it will run and restart even after temp drops again. But let it sit and get cold it wont start. i have changed cap, coil, plugs, wires, What sensor am i missing?

When the truck sits long enough to let the engine to cool down the engine is hard to get started.

mileage has gone down, I have 46000 miles and have done everything I can think of to make it better except the PCV.

After warming up sometimes idles at 600rpms and is ok, then sometimes drops down to 500rpms. only seems to do this in drive, 1st and 2nd. In reverse and neutral idles ok. Also when I'm coming to a stop at about 7-8 mph the engine rpms rev about 200. does this everytime i come to a stop no matter how fast or slow i'm going. Have replaced tps, iac, pcv and taken throttle body off and cleaned.

has people always complaining about the brakes
last week i loaned my truck to a neighbor an she said i took her a couple stops to get use to the non power brakes.it says i paid fo power brakes but i had one of my kids say almost the same thing.so they don,t have them or they are just crummy brakes?

can I drop the oil pan in the truck to do the rods & main bearings & oil pump with out removing the motor? is there a way to do that? did I say it is a 4x4? I looked under the truck, it looks realy tight. so can it be done?



My 2006 Dakota began to sound like the battery needed to be replaced a few days before when I first started it now all I hear is a clicking noise when I turn the key. There is still lots of juice going to the dashboard and headlights so it is not the battery. Is it really the starter or solenoid?

2000 dakota 4.7L. When first started after sitting sounds like no oil in top motor. Sounds like valves chattering. Only last for about a second. Then starts up fine as long as it doesn't sit for awhile. Also inside filler tube is milky oil (water). Check dipstick and oil is fine. Is only in filler tube. Clean filler tube and drive, milky oils starts building up again.

1997 Dodge Dakota pickup standard transmission has intermitent starting problem. Doesn't seem to make any difference if in nuetral, cluths pushed in, foot on brake or emergencyy brake on or any combination. Thanks

does not idle high no matter how cold it is. starts up and idles at around 700. then after driving a little idle drops to 500 rpms. put in park idles fine. turn on defrost and idles fine. also when started after sitting, sounds like valves chattering or no oil in top of engine. only last about a second then sounds fine. after that starts up fine unless it sits for awhile.

I got stuck in a snow bank earlier this week, and as i was trying to get out of it, I was turning my steering wheel from side to side as I would back up and drive forward. Then my steering wheel became very stiff and hard to turn, not gradually, very suddenly. I ended up out of the ditch, and now it seems that my power steering isn't working at all. The fluid is full, no leaks, and the fan is tight with all pulleys turning. There are no whining sounds when I turn the wheel either. When the wheel is straight, there is a small area that it turns with no resistance, but as soon as I turn past that, I have to use both arms to turn at all. When the truck's tires are off the ground, they turn fine. I appreciate any help you can give me, and if you need more info, let me know.

I don't have a problem I just want to upgrade the Dodge Dakota exhaust/muffler to make it sound and look better. Where does a person go to have this done?

Also, can you add side running boards to this year vehicle if the dealer says they aren't available for this model year?

I have a 1990 Dodge Dakota with a 3.9 engine what do i set the Timing on it with a Timing light what Degree?

Truck stalls when I'm backing up. It doesn't stall when going straight back but if I'm turning in reverse it will stall. It starts right back up and drives in all other gears just fine. Transmission is automatic and the check engine light does not stay on. I have replaced the Throttle Position Sensor because I seen that as a possible cause in another forum but it did not fix the problem. Anyone have any thoughts?

When the truck is first started in the mornings, the rpm's initially go up to 2000 rpm's then slowly decreases.
Also, sometimes when I stop for a red light, the engine rpm's increase to approx. 1200 and then decreases slowly.

tire leans outward creating pull to the left and excessive tire wear

the oil pressure guage started fluxulating from 0 to 40-50 then the motor stalled out got hot pulled oil dipstick out no water in the oil but dipstick wont go back in the tube & truck wont start

when driving at 35 and 45 mph. and you come to a hill theres a strong vibration and the rpm. drops to around 1500 and lower this just started why?

How much should it cost to change/replace the spark plugs? Is their placement so difficult, that lots of effort is put into getting to their location?

Rear seat belt latch caught in the door breaking the plastic cover,is there anyway to repair so to stop it from falling to the bottom of the belt every time
