There is a nut that you have to loosten on the the shifter below the knob. pull the rubber boot down and you should see it. If not put a rag over the knob before using channel locks

How can I remove the old gear shift knob and install a new one in my 2000 SLS Cadilac


There is either a small 'c' clip on the front/bottom side or it has an iternal snap ring. If it is the 'c' clip you should see a small slot that you can pop the clip out. If it has the internal one, it pulls straight up and off. Warning: Do not twist it, you will break something expensive in the shifter. From the service manual....

Detaching the shift control knob from the shift lever may require a large amount of physical effort.
Do not twist the shift control knob while pulling.
Firmly grasp the shift control knob.
Pull straight up to detach from the shift lever.

Installation Procedure
Align the shift control knob to the shift lever.
Firmly press down on the shift control knob in order to attach to the shift lever. An audible sound will be heard when the internal clip is fully seated.

My 1999 Dodge Dakota 2WD, 3.9 V6, has major hesitation shifting from 2nd to 3rd and also downshifts in and out of OD at about 55 to 60 mph. Above 60, it wants to stay in 3rd only. Took valve body off and...


Is the 1-2 shift high also? When you had the valve body off did you check the screens on the governor solenoid and the 3-4 shift solenoid? These tend to plug up.

99 dodge dakota wont shift from first gear but also fuel light is on i bought from auction and put 5 gal of gas and needle moved a lil would this make the truck not shift?


No the fact that your vehicle is low on gas should have nothing to do with the shifting of the transmission. You are dealing with two separate issues.

Remove the shift knob in a 1999 dodge dakota


The shift knob on a manual trans should twist off. Sometimes it takes a bunch of force. Are you replacing the knob? Then channel locks will work fine.
