96 continental oil leak around air conditioner pump


There is a chemical which can be put into the A/C fill port to glow when hit with an ultraviolet pen. Autozone, Advance, and Orielys carry these kits.

By using this kit, you can find out whether this is a leak from your A/C system or the engine or Power steering.

Lift kit removal, chasey to body


before u do this look at the radiator hoses and the fan,the gas filler hose for the gas tank,the steering linkage,tranny linkage and the exhaust manifold,and the brake lines,tires might be over sized too.Because all of these had to be modified when the body was lifted, after u have looked at this an disconnected the necessary ones then and only then u can remove the lift kit,you will need a floor jack and a couple blocks of wood,start by find all your bolts for this you should find depending on the lift kit,neoprene spacers between your body a frame,u will have to go to the dealer to purchase rubber grommets and shorter bolts to replace the spacers,and bolts,u will be taking out , after u have done this start loosening the bolts have your jack ready so u can lift up the body just enough so u can get the spacer out,depending on size of truck u will have 6 to 8 bolts,if your lift kit is higher than 3 in u might want to get two jacks one on the front end and one on the back so u don't bend the body and put unnecessary stress on it and put your truck body down evenly,after u have removed the lift kit and put all your grommets and the new shorter bolts in then u get to reconnect all the things u had to undo at first,ie radiator hoses and the fan,the gas filler hose for the gas tank,the steering linkage,tranny linkage and the exhaust manifold, and the brake lines,tires might be over sized..hope this helps and good luck

I have a 1989 jeep cherokee with 32 inch tires and a 6 or more inch lift i just put on a sway bar and a steering shock but the steering is still all over the road what could it be


First of all, lets look at the obvious. When installing a tire that large the tendency of the tire is to follow every crack and crevice in the road. By raising it up you totally change the steering geometry. This being said, it may still not be the problem. I have run tall tire with lift kits for years.
Take a look at the steering box where it mounts to the frame. Larger tires have a tendency to put more pressure on the steering gear box. It can range from causing the mounting bolts to loosen to causing small cracks in the frame. If the steering gear box moves even in the slightest it will be practically impossible to hold in the road.
Another possibility is worn piston seals inside the steering gear box. When they leak, or bypass, the gear box becomes sluggish and you will find yourself chasing it all over the place.

I just purchased a 99 dakota it came with i believe a 3 inch lift in it. A week after driving it the passenger side hub bearing assembly exploded and water pump went out. Im concerned because i think...


The Dakota's have alway had weak steering boxes and even some problems with the steering shaft. Look up Dodge Dakota websites. You need to find a good garage to inspect and repair your truck. There's so many problems with Dakota's and Durango's. The control arm bushings are probably bad too. Lift kits increase the strain on the suspension and steering. I would just sell it.

Lift kit for a '95 2wd dodge dakota


I am pretty sure that there is a lift kit available for a 95 dakota. There are a few ways to lift the body of the vehicle. I know a few people who have done it with hockey pucks. Drill holes through the center of the hockey pucks and place them in the body mounts. However, if you want buy a real lift kit, there are several sites that sell lift kits. I recently put a 9" suspension lift on a 1977 F-150. Most companys that make the kits offer more for newer vehicles.
I am not sure if I am allowed to post other websites, however, I did search for a lift for a 95 dakota and found one right away. There are three types of lifts that you can do. One is very limited but you can get the truck taller by putting bigger tires on it. Doing this will give you less clearance between the top of the tire and the fender well. There are also body lifts and suspension lifts. Body lifts are less expensive as there are less components to install. Suspension lifts are much more expensive but it is what I would reccomend for a larger lift. For a couple inches I would go with the body lift. For anything over 2 to 3 inches I would reccomend a suspension lift. If you can find a body lift kit for a 95 dakota 4x4, then you can use it on a 2 wheel drive as well.

Sounds like you have idle air contol problem,sounds like you need your intake cleaned .Go to your local parts store and see if they have 3 step intake cleaning kit. 3M makes a kit and so does valvoline. It should contain a can of Throttle body cleaner a bottle of intake cleaner and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner that you will have to add to your fuel tank. Or you can go to your local valvoline express lube and they can perform this service for around $50.
