Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Dodge Dakota that I need to remove the A/C accumulator from. I bought the tools that are required for removal of the internal spring clamp. The problem is, the tool will go into the top half of the fotting, but the gap is too narrow to go into the bottom at the same time. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: front drivers side axle removal

There's not any special tools. You need a socket to fit the nut on the end of the axle and a wrench to take the nut and bolt off the bottom ball joint that slides through the control arm. Take a bar, pry down on lower control arm, pulling ball joint out, then pull the upper part out by hand, away from the car, slide axle out of the bearing assembly. Take a pry bar, put between trans and axle, give it a swift, quick ****. The axle should come out. Remember to always put jack stands under the car and be safe. Phil

SOURCE: remove and install struts on 04 mazda 3

In the rear you DO NOT need a spring conpressor to remove struts. However in the front If your struts have the springs around them, then yes you definatly need a spring compressor. They sell and rent automatic spring compressors but they cost  a couple hundred bucks, but if I was you I would go to an auto parts store and get manually spring compressors they are $30-$50 and you hook them up to the springs and tighten them down with a drill or air gun. If you dont have a drill or air gun you could use a wrench of rachet but that will take forever.

Trans slips when in the 30-45 mph range whether in Overdrive or not. There is no problems with slippage from the start and or exceleration on the Hwy.


That would indicate that the 3rd gear is slipping. You need to take the vehicle to a transmission specialist to have it diagnosed and repaired

1995 Dodge Dakota> Removing door panel. Can't remove Window knob.. have to replace locks(both sides)....easiest steps to replacing the locks??


Their are two options on removing the door crank-one the base of the crank top comes off where it is connected to the panel and if you pry slight with a thin tool it will expose where you can remove with either a torx or a nut driver-second option you must slip in door panel clip removal tool to relase the spring clip-these fly if you don't keep be careful. clip tools are at most auto parts store-by slighty spreading the door crank look down and you will see spring clip.Note it's either nut removal or spring removal.

I have a 2003 dodge durango and the transmission


are there any DTC's if there is It is likely the selonoid valve assembly if not then it is likely in the valve body and easy to fix.

had the same problem it was a broken OD accumulator piston spring in the valve body. Just buy a transco SK 45RFE shift kit it comes with all the accumulator piston seals an updated and much thicker and stronger accumulator retainer plate AND the kit includes a "spare" set of accumulator springs (1 large & 1 small) in case the spring(s) are broken ,which they do from timt to time. It is only 6 bolts to remove the valve body (carefully) and 7 screws to remove the accumulator plate to access the accumulator pistons and springs. The instructions included in the kit are excellent and very straight forword, you won't need all of the parts but save them they may come in handy some day later.

How do i remove the window crank from a 1999 dakota door?


Go down to your local parts store and buy a window handle removal tool. It slides between the crank and the door panel. There is a spring clip that is in the handle that holds it onto the mechanisms post.
Take the tool and slide it around till you find the clip, push and the handle will come off.

Have fun

They do require a special tool to remove the two lines. This tool can be purchased from NAPA, O'Reilly's, Carquest, or one of the other major parts stores.
