SOURCE: 1988 Dodge Dakota brake line size question

they should be 3/16" but if you want to be sure, take a quarter inch wrench and put the open end over the line if it is sloppy on the line it is 3/16" , if it fits nicely, it is 1/4" . that is the only two sizes they could of used.

This is a test of the sensor only. A complete test of the circuit requires the DRBII scan tool, or equivalent.
Unplug the wiring harness connector from the intake manifold temperature sensor.

  1. Using an input impedance volt-ohmmeter, measure across the terminals to test the resistance. The resistance should be less than 1340 ohms with the engine warm. Replace the sensor if not within specifications.
  2. Test the resistance of the wire harness. Do this between the engine controller wire harness connector terminal 21 and the connector terminal. Also check between terminal 4 to the sensor connector terminal. Repair the wire harness as necessary if the resistance is greater than 1 ohm.


code 32 is related to the EGR circuit. Remove the EGR valve from the intake and check for a clogged port(s). If ports are ok, replace the EGR. Check for vacuum leaks on all hoses and connections as well as the air intake tube. Sometimes the air intake tubes crack in between the ribs on on the ends where the clamps are, causing vacuum leaks.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Dakota V8 4.7L,

  1. The Fuel Level Sending Unit, or Fuel Level Sensor, is located in your gas tank with the Fuel Pump Module. The fuel gauge sending unit (fuel level sensor) is attached to the side of the fuel pump module. The sending unit consists of a float, an arm, and a variable resistor track (card).
  2. The Fuel Pressure Regulator is located within fuel pump module. The fuel pressure regulator controls fuel system pressure. The PCM cannot detect a clogged fuel pump inlet filter, clogged in-line fuel filter, or a pinched fuel supply or return line. However, these could result in a rich or lean condition causing the PCM to store an oxygen sensor or fuel system diagnostic trouble code.
Both of these sensors are connected with the Fuel Pump Module. Here is a diagram:

SOURCE: re: 1993 Dodge Dakota, where might I find the fuel

  • You have an Automatic Shut Down Relay or "ASD Relay" not so much a "switch." The ASD relay inside the power distribution center which is under the hood on the left corner of the engine compartment. Under the lid is a legend that will pinpoint it's location in said box. I would look at this if your having problems with the fuel pump. Should you need to replace the pump the tank must be dropped for this vehicle.


  • Hope this helps.

Wheel hub assembly diagram

Go to you tube and ask for "How to replace Dodge Dakota front hub", you will find 2 or 3 good videos about it, I follow these videos and change mine in about 3 hours, note that I never did it in any car or truck. Another tip is that all videos I found was about 4x4 Dakotas and mine is 4x2, the only difference is the hub center fix, 28 mm screw on 4x2 and 32 mm nut on 4x4.

Most vehicles are equipped with what is called a fuel power inertia switch. It is a basic component that shuts down the fuel system during an accident to prevent fuel from being an factor during sensitive times. You may have to find and flip or replace this switch. I do not know the location of it on this particular model off hand, but if you consult your service manual you should be able to locate it quickly.

NOTE: on most vehicle it is located under the dash near the glove box. On some near the fuse box. On cars it is commonly in the trunk.

Thanks for using FixYa, if this solution does not work please feel free to come back and try again.
