Your sensor is located on the front of your engine, it's mounted at the
HARMONIC BALANCER which is on the very frount of the crank shaft.

SOURCE: Passenger window only works from drivers switch

If you have already replaced the passenger side switch and it still doesnt work its a good chance that there is a pinched wire in the door itself. However usually it wont work from the drivers side either. But I still suggest looking there first.

SOURCE: passenger window wont go down but can hear motor working

You need to replace the regulator inside the door. It's the little pulley system that will pull your window up and down when you push the button.
Takes about 20 minutes to fix, so you're looking at about 100.00 at the garage.

SOURCE: how to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8

When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif

SOURCE: Noise in front wheels of 97 dodge dakota

You have a wheel hub assembly with bad needle bearings. Make sure by getting the vehicle up to operating speed and cruise a curvy road. A quieting down on a right hand turn will indicate a left wheel bearing assembly,(and vice versa) and you have to put some force into the turn in order to notice the changes in the sound. You'll find one turn will be quieter than the other. I had this problem with a similar vehicle and purchased the wheel hub assembly through Rock Auto (google them. You'll be glad you did). Thirty percent cheaper than the local parts house, and they shipped the part quite quickly. Make sure, by the way, to clean out the pocket where the assembly goes in. Simply pull the wheel off, drop the caliper, and you'll see three bolts holding the assembly. Take the nut off the end of the axle shaft and be prepared to beat the old assembly off with a heavy hammer. You will not have to drop either ball joint, although you should inspect them for wear at that time. Slip the replacement assembly onto the shaft and line up the splines before trying to mount the assembly. The whole job should take you maybe about an hour, and you may not break all that much of a sweat while you're at it. Good luck and be confident. You can do this!

Im trying to locate my crankshaft sensor on my 1995 dodge dakota v8 does anyone have a diagram or can tell me exactly where it is .. do you have to remove anything to get to it ..is it easier to get to...


It's almost certainly going to be beside the crankshaft pulley. Try looking from underneath the car and search for the unit, or the wires, leading from it.

Cannot remove starter from 1995 dodge dakota 5.2 all bolts off, will not disengage from transmission.?


Some of these also have a metal bracket at the back of the starter, if not you need a soft faced hammer and give it a solid whack near the back of the starter to loosen it from the bellhousing.

Looking to find a diagram for a dodge 1995 dakota 4wd with 318 v8 for the crankshaf position sensor


Hi hope I can help.
You will find the crankshaft position sensor on the passenger side of your truck.
You will have to look by the firewall.
Where the bell-housing meets the block. It looks like it is sandwiched between the too of them.
It is mounted with two bolts.
hope this helps FixYa

No spark


Check your Hall Effect Sensor and Crankshaft Sensor. It's located on the Bellhousing. Without a lift, you may not be able to get to it, I can't.
