Check your motor mounts. Broken doesn't always mean "in Pieces". A motor mount is basically a shock absorber made of some type of rubber, held in place by a metal bracket.

SOURCE: 93 dodge dakota shakes at 80 km/hr

first make sure its not in 4x4 and all wheels spin freely. it could be tire, but double ck the u-joints on the rear drive shaft. maybe rotate the tires front to back to see if makes a difference. i would also recommend making sure all running gear fluids are full. (transmission, transfercase, and differential.)

SOURCE: Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.

Blower fan in 92 dodge spirit doesn't work. no power to the fuse controlling the blower motor

Well the power comes from a 30amp fuse which is hot in the run position. So it originates at the key switch.
The key switch may be faulty or it could be in the wiring between the switch and the fuse box.

What causes my car to shut down due to hot outdoor temperatures? 1992 Dodge Spirit ES

Could be several things: if the computer is not receiving enough cooling air, it can shutdown to self protect. Another possibility, is the condition called "Vapor lock", where the engine does not receive liquid fuel because of the heat causing it to vaporize, specially if the fuel regulator has problems. Another could be the ignition coil failing when overly hot. ]without more info, it is impossible to know.

I have a 1992 dodge spirit that the wipers quit working. The fuse was blown and every time I change fuse it blows when I turn on the ignition.

Try unplugging the wiper motor and see if it blows the fuse. If it doesn't, then your motor has an internal short and needs to be replaced.

When you start the car motor shake and when you put into gear the motor moves up and to the right

Your motor mounts are broken, at least one is.


Driving with a broken mount can really mess up other things in the motor and tranny, or worse cause an accident.
