That makes sense. The oil pump for the transfer case runs from the driveshaft, and the one for the trans runs from the engine. If you put the trans in neutral, then parts of it may be turning without lubrication.

Other things to watch on those trucks:
The electrical power goes through a splice near the battery and gets corroded.
Transmission lines tend to rust out near the tranny in salt country.

dakota is meant from manufacture to haul max. 5,000 lbs so you have a 1200 lbs camper that leaves you a capacity of tounge weight of 3800 lbs safley and anything over may cause severe damage to your vehicle,or others around you,be safe

SOURCE: steps necessary to flat tow

  • For a 4 wheel drive automatic Dodge Dakota you can in fact tow it.
  • You will put the transfer case in neutral.
  • Keep the truck in park.
  • This makes it so the transmission does not turn but the transfer case does. Now both shafts can "freewheel."
  • Your Dakota can do this because the transfer case (sealed) does not share fluid with the transmission so they don't have any lubricating issues.
  • Now just hook your vehicle up to a tow bar or tow dolly.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Where is radiator drain plug 02 dodge dakota


This is a post on the Dakota forums:
My 2001 Durango and 2002 Dakota they use the same radiator. You'll have the same setup. I have recent and intimate knowledge of draining them. Crawl under the left front of the truck and look up at the bottom of the radiator. At the bottom of the driver side radiator tank (facing toward the fender) is a 3/4" long flat handled plug. Twist your hand (with a pair of pliers) up there from the back side of the bumper fascia. Grip it and give it a 180* counterclockwise twist. It is now opened and draining out the little nipple sticking straight down from the bottom of the side tank. You can stick a 5/16" (or 3/8") hose onto the nipple to drain it into a bottle or pan without making a mess.
