WOW. You want to put a 3.9 ltr V6 from a 2001 Dakota into a 1998 Dakota with a 2.5 ltr 4 cylinder? And you want to keep the manual trans? Have you considered what you will be using for a fuel and engine managment system? If you have a wrecked truck as a host vehicle then the changover may work. But it will take patience and a lot of work. I don't think the 4 cylinder trans will bolt up but I am not sure - never tried that. However that light duty trans will probably not handle the torque for very long even if it did bolt up. Your local Auto Salvage Yard will have a changeover guide and be able to tell you if that trans will fit either engine. My recommendation is to swap everthing and change that 98 to a 01, auto trans and everything.
Good Luck
Let me know how it goes?

I have a peugeot 206 allure I have clunking noise when changing from 1st to 2nd and from 2nd to 3rd but not when changing to forth or coming down the gear I have had a new gear box clutch and thrust


It could be a loose/failed engine or transmission mount. Look at the tranny rear mount and check the bolts and condition. Also check the bell housing bolts AND the bolts connecting the engine flywheel to the clutch pressure plate.

I pulled all the bellhousing bolts..motor mount bolts...and can't seperate the 4 speed granny transmission from the engine block...what's the problem..everything is lose but won't seperate..


The input shaft (on the front of the trans) is inserted into the clutch plate, so the trans has to move straight backward (or the engine has to move straight forward) about two or three inches to separate the two, before either one can move up or down.

Make sure that you can get them to rotate slightly with respect to each other, to make sure that there is not one more bolt somewhere that is still holding them together.

If you are pulling the engine, make sure that you have already removed the radiator, otherwise when you pull the engine forward, it could go too far and smash the radiator.

I'm trying to drop the transmission out of 1985 Dodge Lancer 2.2 L 4 Cyl. Turbo to install a new clutch kit. There is a lot of connections going into the bell housing and tranny which ones do disconnect?...


my favourite job ,i love clutches like i love ,well think of something ??,anyway you will need to disconnect the clutch ,gear change mechanism ,front suspension off and drive shafts out ,reverse light connection ,now some front wheel drive vehicles you have to lower the subframe as well .iam asuming its front wheel drive as i have never seen one ,now another trick i do to save time is to just open the bell housing about 3 inches then undo one bolt on the clutch at a time and turn flywheel with a big screwdriver ,then work out where the clutch bolts are in relation to the bell housing then drill a hole that i can get my 10mm socket through and in line with the clutch bolts ,then place new clutch in position and finger tighten bolts ,then refit bellhousing with a wiggle and as the clutch is loose it can move and align up .then when i have the bellhousing in place and bolts in and tight ,i can then tighten clutch bolts one at a time by turning ringear with a screwdriver but go round twice and their you are one clutch change ,shouldnt take including teabreak more than 3 hours .

I think my clutch master cillender is going out I loose preasure on my hydrolic clutch pedel. About how much will it cost for another master cillender and how do you change it?


depending on mileage you might be better off getting an entire clutch kit from advanced auto parts ~$350 and you'll have a new clutch, flywheel disc, and master cylinder. i replaced mine, but it is a pain. you have to drop the engine, remove the bell housing from the tranny to engine, then inside the bell housing is the master cylinder and it only has like two bolts that hold it on. once done remember to bleed your clutch.

Whats involved in changing clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing on a 1996 ford mustang


The vehicle must be raised on four jackstands. Disconnect the battery pos(+) terminal.The driveshaft has to be removed . Then remove the three starter mounting bolts, this will allow acess to the main feed wire to the starter, remove the 1/2 inch nut and lock washer and remove the wire.Place the starter to the side. Next you'll need to remove the rear tranny mounting bolt. Then remove the crossmember from the frame. This is where you'll wish you hadn't started this job. You must support the tranny while sliding the crossmember out. This can easily be accomplished by placing a small floorjack centered under the tranny pan with a 1 foot by 1 foot square piece of plywood on the jack lift cradle.Next you'll want to remove and put aside any sensors (back-up, speed, gear position...) if utililized from the tranny. Remove all bell housing bolts. remove the slave unit from the bell housing. Very carefully roll the tranny back a small amount and lower the jack a small amount. Continue this until the tranny is free of the pilot bearing.Lower and remove the tranny. Remove the pressure plate in a rotation motion as not to put too much strain on any one single bolt. Remove the pressure plate being careful not to be hit by the clutch disk which will now be free. Check the condition of the flywheel for cracks and glazing. This will determine if it needs to be turned or replaced. Check the pilot bushing with your finger to make sure it turns smoothly and freely.Then......put it back together with your new parts. Any questions? Good luck, Dana

Bolt torque specs for flywheel, pressure plate, bell housing bolts for 97 Nissan maxima


1.Flywheel - 61 to 69 Foot Pounds
2.Pressure Plate - 25 to 33 Foot Pounds
3.Bell Housing - No specs found. I would say 25 to 35 foot pounds should be sufficient.

Bolts clean on ->flywheel to crank, ->pressure plate to flywheel, and ->bell housing to back of engine, I would use TWO drops of Loctite Red threadlocker, on ALL of these bolts.

Hope you have an alignment tool for your clutch disk when you install it. Auto parts stores sell the plastic one's cheap! Saves a LOT of headaches!

Tighten the pressure plate EVENLY! Snug the bolts down until they just TOUCH, then go in a criss-cross pattern when tightening. Do the tightening in incremental stages! You turn one bolt one thread, you go across to the opposite side, and turn that bolt one thread. Keep criss-crossing so the pressure plate goes down EVENLY. (YES, it's a pain in the keister!)

If NOT, you'll have a warped pressure plate, and it will be junk!
Thanks for letting me say that, I feel better.
