Happens each year after below 0 or much worse cold weather in Minnesota replaced and reflashed. 1 year had to replace twice. Truck starts and drives fine but check engine dash light comes on and code points to the cam and crank sensors. One instance the light went out but then came on days later. Reflashed and was fine rest of Winter. Never seems to happen during above 10 degree or higher weather.
Dodge Dakota 4.7 V8 4 wheel drive with just under 115000 miles. Both these sensors have been replace twice before now.
it goes into all other gears asides reverse
driving with cruise on, I turned it off. I made an adjustment to my mirrors. Turned cruise back on after a few min. neither the cruise or mirrors would work
selector switch for awd/4h/4l flashes when going from awd to 4H but never goes into 4wd - light returns to awd position after short time flashing - could it be as simple as the switch on dash being bad ???
selector switch blinks when switching from awd to 4h then returns to awd after a short time - does not go into 4wd and dont hear any noise like its trying to ????
i have parts but would like a manual to repair
my brother and I recently removed the heads from a 3.7l had them sent to a well known machinist on the island and put them back on. after I started the engine it ran for about 15 seconds then died. Im not sure if it was missing because I was only checking it before I proceeded to install the exhaust and it was louder then normal. when I tried to restart it sounds like its starving for fuel like it wants to start an the engine light is blinking. I told my brother we need to disassemble it and check timing. he says its on the marks exactly how he took it apart and brought the cylinder to TDC and its aligned. Oh yah I forgot to mention that he distorted the cam sensor sprocket on the passenger side and we replaced it with a new one. Still not running on Maui
the engine cranks fine has spark down to each plug,firing order correct,plug gap 0.40,cap and rotor correct,but no start.it ran before ,no pinched wires at the distributor,hummm"
i need serious help!! I am driving across country with the v6 magnum engine in a 93 dakota. rwd just bought it used and i dont know anything about this truck. I think the engine was rebuilt because there is only 15000 miles on it. it seems to run well but the brake system doesnt seem too sturdy. Its 4speed (OD in 5th speed) manual and it sounds great. sometimes doesnt start up right away. would you trust it to get you from west coast to east coast towing a 3600 lb camper in winter? would you trust it to get you down steep hills with a camper? would it be safe? i need help! ahh!
Strpped I am not mechanically inclined but should be able to do this advice technique and tool recommendations will be greatly appreciated
