Check and replace the O2 sensor for that bank.
Check and replace any separate manifold air pressure sensor for that bank if present.

SOURCE: need diagram for 2000 dodge dakota serpentine belt

On the 1999 Dakota with the 3.9liter, the fan shroud absolutely DOES NOT have to be removed. Very simple job. Simply use a breaker bar with a 15mm socket on the belt tesioner pulley nut. Using the breaker bar push (as though tightening) the pulley nut...the reaction will be that the tensioner removes tension from the pulley and the entire belt can be removed by easily slipping it toward the front of the vehicle...comes right off. The new belt can go back on in exactly the same manner. By the way the belt routing diagram IS CONVIENENTLY LOCATED between the hood latch and the radiator mounting for simple and quick refernce...one person job, I did removal and installation four times in less than 10 minutes. (why four times? The auto parts store was selling replacement belts that were too long and did not allow the belt tensioner to provide suffiecient tension...I had to try four different manufacturers before the tensioner was adequately tight with room to grow as the belt naturally stretches from use.). I found no stringing around the fan is required because of the way the belt is routed (it doglegs around the main engine pulley which is centered below the fanhousing and then the belt runs from there to the left side of the fan housing...avoiding the fan/fanhousing all-together (sure you can try to go past the fan/fan housing if you so desire...but you dont have to...and besides the space between the pulleys and the fan is ample to allow the belt to pass between with minimal interference or a simple rotation of the fan as you attempt this method. One hint that made my installs easy as pie...the last pulley you put it over should not be a bezeled and ridged pulley or you will needlessly make life difficult for yourself...the last pulley should be the water pump pulley which is a smooth bore and non-ridged pulley (makes you wonder how the belt even stays on it!)...making it easy as pie to slip it right over...as your last act of defiance to that mean old serpentine belt!

SOURCE: I need to know where the thermostat is in a 2004 DODGE DAKOTA 3.7

follow the upper radiator hose to the engine, drain about 1/2 gallon of coolant and then pull upper hose off at the engine, look inside the metal large nipple, that is the thermostat.

SOURCE: how to replace/remove both catalytic converters

Below are the steps needed to remove the catalytic converters. You may be able to first remove the band clamp from between the converter and the exhaust manifold, then loosen the rest of the system and to get enough clearance to slide the converter towards the front of the vehicle but you will need to first remove the clamp that holds the converter to the rest of the exhaust. Hope this helps
_______________________
Both Catalytic Convertors

First you need to raise the vehicle.

Next, you need to pry the insulators from the support brackets and support the muffler and tailpipe with jackstands.

Then, loosen the the catalytic converter down pipe-to-front resonator clamps and separate the front resonator from the converter down-pipes. Carefully lay the free laying exhaust on the ground.

______________________
Right Catalytic Converter

Then, remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut, loosen the clamp and separate the extension pipe from the converter.

Next lower the vehicle and remove the air filter and intake ducts. Disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment. You may need to replace these clamps after removal because you need to pry it apart and they will leak when you reinstall.

_____________________
Left Catalytic Converter

Now disconnect the wiring harness for the O2 sensor and the remove the sensor.

Next remove the down-pipe-to-transaxle bracket nut

Finally loosen the band clamp at the exhaust manifold and remove the converter from the engine compartment.

2000 dodge dakota 4.7 both banks running lean tps replaced runs fine at idle & light pedal. Medium or heavy throttle rpms jump then fall and truck wont accelerate


Sounds like a failed transmission, if the tach flairs

When you say lean both banks, you would need a scan tool
to know that & then the common thing to both, would be the
MAF Sensor.

You find almost 50% of the time Ignition Issues cause a
lot of problems.

The things you don't test or rule out because they lack

1996 dodge dakota black smoke, engine running horrible getting P0171 code?


It sounds like your engine is running very rich yet the computer thinks it's lean. P0171 is a lean code for bank 1 (the side of the engine with cylinder #1) Pretty much the only causes could be a large exhaust leak, bad o2 sensor or bad computer. Is the p0171 the only code?

It sounds like you have injector problems. You can get a free diagnostic at participating Auto Zone, Pep Boys, Kragen, etc (national auto parts stores) to isolate the problem. This may not be a fix it yourself problem.

It means that your engine is running lean - not getting enough fuel for the amount of air that the engine is receiving. Because your maxima is equipped with a V-6 engine, whatever the problem, it is affecting only bank #1. Bank #1 is always the side of the engine where cylinder #1 is located, or in your case, the left side of the engine as it is viewed while facing the crankshaft end of the engine.
(on a 4 cylinder engine, there is only one bank and it is always referred to as Bank #1)
There are several things that can cause a lean condition including vacuum leaks, a malfunctioning Evaporative Emissions system, a misfiring cylinder (due to bad plugs, bad injectors, or an intake or head gasket leak.), a malfunctioning Mass Airflow sensor (MAF) or Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor (MAP) or even a bad Oxygen sensor (O2s) (Nissan sometimes calls an O2s an "Air-Fuel Ratio Sensor") It is even possible for a leaking vacuum brake booster to cause a lean code.
If there are any other malfunction codes present, it may help to pinpiont the cause of the lean code. (Like a P0301 "cylinder#1 misfire detected", in which case, you would address the misfire code first.)
Certain problems, like a leaking brake booster or a bad MAF will usually set lean codes for BOTH banks.
If the P0171 is the ONLY code present, the most likely cause is a bad O2s, but I recommend some diagnostic testing to prove it before spending the mega-bucks that Nissan gets for their O2 sensors.

Losing gas mileage, left bank running lean


There are 3 oxygen sensors on your van. Left bank would be the front left. Try replacing it and see if that helps but remember to reset the computer. Where I work the sensor costs a little over $100.00.

Oxygen Sensor


Bank 1 is the side that has # 1 cylinder in it, the sensor is located in the exhaust head pipe before the Cat Converter, one note of caution: an O2 code does not always indicate an O2 sensor problem, it depends if the code is a lean code or a rich code, lean may may be a sensor, rich is never a sensor, lean codes can be caused by all kinds of issues, a bad MAF, a vacuum leak from hoses or a leaking intake gasket, an injector problem and so on. Good luck hope it is the sensor.

You need to take it to a shop or dodge dealer. If the 02 isn't functioning, that will cause the lean condition. This would also cause the ignition curicuit malfunction because your computer is trying to adjust the timing to compensate for the lean running condition. You could save some money by going to www.craigslist.org and looking for a mobile mechanic in your area who will come to you to fix your truck. Generally it will save you money for the same quality service because they have little to no overhead to charge for compaired to a shop or car dealer.
