well first take off the door panel it shouldnt be hard remove plastic cover off door.Make sure your window is all the ways up before you remove the motor.you can hold it up with duct tape or anything similar.Then remove the screw that go to the regulator sometimes it has rivets wich have to be drilled off.The new regulator should come with screws if it has rivets if not u use the same old screws.Also unplug the harness of it . Install new one,screw it on and reverse the procedure.Any problems keep me posted

How to set the timing on a 1993 dodge dakota 2.5 motor


Hi Linda, curious if you installed a new timing chain and are trying to reset your distributor. If so I would like to ask you if you have set to piston number one to Top Dead Center. Now if all of this is done and you have set the distributor to it original place then the timing should be set at 12 degrees when the engine is running. Good luck.

Check with AZ Parts and see if they don't have a machine they can check that for you. That's the simplest way to find it. Your could spend months and never find it yourself. That diagnostics machine will find it right away.

I have a 1987 Dodge dakota and can't get any spark?


You need to see if you have voltage at the coil with the key on.
Make sure the check engine light comes on when you turn the key on.
If not, check the ASD relay in the engine compartment.
You will need a book and a meter to test the other components.

Have 5.2 1994 Dodge Dakota. I replaced the distributor, Timing is way off, Please Help! How do I correct it!


#1 cylinder is at top dead center twice during a normal combustion cycle - once at the top of the compression stroke and once at the top of the exhaust stroke. To make sure you're coming up on the compression stroke, remove the #1 spark plug and hold your finger over the hole as you rotate the crankshaft. If you feel pressure, it's the right stroke. If you don't, continue for another complete revolution of the crankshaft.
Once you'e at TDC on the compression stroke, then insert your distributor with the rotor pointing at the #1 position (you may need to adjust the distributor drive shaft - lift it to disengage from the cam gear - to get the rotor pointing as close as possible to #1).

I have a 1992 dodge dakota 3.9l v6 when im driving the motor will just cut out. sometimes it will start right back up and sometimes it will take like 15 to 20 min before it starts back up. no check engine...


One way to confirm if it's a spark problem or fuel delivery problem is, when it quits and won't start, remove air intake hose at throttle body opening and spray some WD-40 ( 2-3 sec. ) into throttle body, then try to start. If it fires up momentarily then stalls again, have fuel pressure tested. The WD-40 acts like quick start and if that fires the engine over, then you have spark, but not enough or any fuel.
If that doesn't help, no start at all even with WD-40 sprayed in throttle body, then I'd think real serious about changing the hall effect pick-up ( pick-up coil) in distributor, if you have that style distributor. It is located under distributor cap below rotor, it looks like a round black plate in shape with wiring and connector at end of it. Remove cap, remove rotor, and lift it out, unplug from connector. Replace it in same position, then re-install rotor, then cap. They were a pretty common problem in earlier years. Engine would just quit anytime after it was warmed up, then sit for 15-20 minutes, then restart and go for a while and do it again.

1993 Dodge Dakota 5.2 318 4x4, turns over, but no spark. Cat converter shot, removed. Plugs, cap, rotor replaced. MAP sensor recently replaced...will start and run once in a great while.


Try switching the ASD Relay for another relay in the Fuse Box in the Engine Compartment. If the ASD Relay fails it cancels the power to the Hall Effect & Fuel Pump.
If that doesn't change anything, check the wiring harness that travels down the left wheelwell for damage, It actually goes outside of the engine compartment, into the wheelwell where it can be damaged by rocks, road debris or a tire (if you've flexed the suspension, or had the truck off road). If the wiring there checks out, it leaves one other thing.
The Hall Effect Sensor inside the Distributor.

Where is the fuel filter location on a 1988 Dodge Dakota?


Locate the gas tank under the bed of the truck (drivers side) and follow the line. You'll see the fuel filter just a little way up from the tank. Mine says "fuel filter" right on it:) If yours doesn't have it printed on there, it'll be a cylindrical part about 3 1/2 to 4 inches long.
