SOURCE: 2001 dodge durango v8 4.7

It is acually called the vehicle speed sensor I do believe. It should should be located on the top of your transmission with a wiring harness attached to it. It should also have 1 bolt holding it in also. Whatever you do, do not rotate the gear when you remove it. Try to mark the exact way it came out when you replace the sensor. When you pull the sensor out it will have this gear attached to it which will need to be placed into the new sensor and put back into the vehicle in the same way it came out or you will throw a code and it will not be pretty. Good luck, hopefully I didn't scare you it can be a simple repair just mind your P's and Q's.

2001 Durango 4.7l. No compression on all 4 cylinders on ONE side. Decent compression on all 4 other side. Ideas?

That is an overhead cam engine - a separate cam on each cylinder head. Remove the valve cover on the side with no compression and see if the cam is turning.

What is the order of opperation for removing the rear wheel bearing on a 2001 dodge durango? and also reassembly!

You must first drain the rear end differential. Then remove the large cirular cover at the rear/center of the differential. I forgot to mention that the rear of the vehicle should be on jackstands about halfway in 1 1/2 feet from each wheel. You may need to pry the cover of with a small flatbar or a thin chisel. Inside is the diferential carrier. If you spin one wheel you'll see a 5/16 of an inch bolt on the right as you face it from the rear. This is the pin that holds the axlesin place. After removing the wheel on the failed bearing side, remove the brake drum if it has one or if it is disk brakes stop there. Remove the 5/16 pin with a long 6 point box wrench. Then rotate the carriage until you can slide out the large chrome shaft from the center. After doing this DO NOT ROTATE either wheel again. Push in the axle about 3/4 of an inch and a large "c" clip will show up and it can be removed easily. Then just slide out the axle and your bearing is right there in the axle outer housing. You may pry it out with a large crow bar or a similar tool. Install the new one with the seal lip facing in and the flat side of the seal facing out. A small piece or 2X4 works well to install the seal. make sure at all times the seal is concentrically aligned. That's it. Put her back together and let me know.
