My 88 dodge dakota has a leak between the engine and the transmission. What could the problem be and how can I fix it?


If it is motor oil, it should match the oil on the dipstick.
If it is automatic transmission fluid, it should be sort of redish and match your "tranny" fluid on that dipstick.
If it is thicker than motor oil, it should be manual transmission oil.
Motor oil leaks from the "rear main seal".
Transmission fluid or gear oil leak from the front transmission seal.
All 3 of these can look like they are coming from about the same place, where you have said.
All three of these require you separate the motor and transmission to fix them, and that means taking the transmission out of your truck.
Pretty expensive if you pay to have it done.
If you take the " tranny" out, most shops will replace both seals (one front, engine and one rear, tranny)
Depending on how much it is leaking and other things, lots of people let it leak.
If you are using a lot of fluid, perhaps it\'s time to think about repairs.
Be blessed

Im looking at a 95' dakota. what is the most commin repairs in this vehical and maintenace


i have had 2 Dakota's a 4 cyl "LACK OF POWER" but never had a problem.
the other A 318 V8 14mpg but was a beast 4wheel drive the only problem I had with the v8 was when it rained water got on the dash bord,,,never figured out where it came from,
BUT I'd buy a 98 or newer one...
PROBLEMS LISTED BELOW!!

Air conditioner: If the air conditioner gradually stops cooling and/or the airflow from the vents decreases, the computer (PCM) may not be sending a signal to the compressor clutch relay to cycle off, which causes the AC evaporator to freeze up. (1991-95)

Automatic transmission: If the transmission will not engage when first started, chances are the torque converter is draining down. Chrysler will correct the problem by installing a check valve. (1993)

Automatic transmission: If the transmission won't upshift in cool weather, it is probably due to defective cast iron seal rings in the governor drive. (1992-94)

Engine fan noise: In warm weather, the fan makes a roaring sound. Dodge will replace the fan, the fan clutch, and, on max cooling systems, the radiator cap. (All)

Exhaust backfire: Exhaust backfire and/or a popping noise in the exhaust may be caused by a defective Powertrain Control Module. (1994-95)

Oil leak: Rear main seals on 2.5- and 4.0-liter engines are prone to leakage. To prevent future failures, Chrysler has a rubber plug available that goes in a hole above the starter that protects the rear main seal. (1996)

Oil leak: Oil leak at the filter on 3.9-, 5.2-, and 5.9-liter engines is likely due to a warped adapter plate. (1995)

Oil pump: Oil pump gear wear results in bucking and surging when the engine is warm and lack of lubrication when the engine is cold. (1992-93)

Rough idle: Because of a problem with the idle air control motor, the engine idles rough, stalls at low speeds or when decelerating, especially in warm weather. (1992-94)

Suspension noise: Front ball joints wear prematurely forcing relacement of lower control arm as well. Replacement joint with grease fitting is now available. (1990-96)

Transaxle leak: Automatic transmission fluid leaks from the speed sensor in the transmission. (1994)

Water leak: The roof seams leak water that seeps down behind the dashboard onto the floor. (1993-95)

Oil licking for my doge caravan 1998, how do i repaire or replack


The oil doesn't leak from the head gasket, Unless it is broken. The oil is inside the engine, the head gasket seals out the water from the cylinder walls, and keeps the compression in. No oil, It could be coming from the rocker cover gasket just above the heads. They always leak. The engine sits at a slight pitch to get the oil out and down. And it usually leaks at the rear the most. Changing those gaskets is a job, you have to remove everything up top of the engine to get to them, then seal up the spark plugs too if they are in the covers. I did mine a few years back and they are just starting to leak again. It only has 250,000 miles, go figure. Check it out, hope this helps.

Oil leaking from back of motor . changed oil pan gasket-valve cover gasket-rear main seal. cant find where its comeing from


The oil pressure switch is located on top at the
transmission end of the engine.
If the switch is leaking, it could appear to be coming
from the places you mentioned. Hope this helps.
Good luck

Where are you seeing the oil leaking from? Remember that gravity will cause the oil to drop down. The wind will also cause the oil to blow back while you drive. Look for the forward most and top most areas that are covered with oil. Common leak areas are the front oil seal (oil will look like it's coming from the bell-housing. Another common leak is the shifter plate gasket, just below the shift lever. Oil will be found draining from this area. I have also seen shoddy mechanics use the wrong bolts to hold the rear housing onto the main housing of the transmission. If the bolts used are to short, oil will leak between the main housing and the tail-shaft housing. Charlie

Oil geting on flywheel an starter, burning oil like crazy


willie05: sounds to me like you have a leaking rear main oil seal.
If the oil is dripping out at the bottom of the motor and appears to be sourced from where the back of the engine and the front of the transmission mate together, that is your problem. Sometimes if the leak has been going on for a while, the under side of the engine and transmission may be covered with oil because of the wind turbulence caused by the car in motion had been blowing it all over the under side. It may take you washing the under side if the motor off or getting it done, to spot the leak more easily.
A valve cover gasket leak will also cause oil to run dow the back of the motor. However, it usually won't get on the flywheel.
Good Luck. Let me know how things turn out.

Too tight.....the the torque for the 4 banger is 72 in lbs

the 6 cylinder is only 80 in lbs.

Any tighter and you start to squeeze the gaskets to where they will leak.

Leaking valve cover gaskets


The problem is over tightening.

If you over tighten your fastners you will sqeeze your gaskets too much and they WILL leak.

You can use black silicon sealant LIGHTLY but you don't really need it. If you have the V6...the torque on them nuts are only 80 in lbs each
