Clutch replacement 2wd 3.9 v6 2000 dodge dakota

If the clutch was worn out, the transmission would not go into reverse or low gear with the engine running.
This clutch is activated by hydraulic pressure like your brakes. The hydraulic part may not be working correctly.
To replace the clutch you have to remove the transmission.

I need to replace the throwout bearing do i pull the hole ****** or go in form the rear of the ******.

Hello James,
I am puzzled as to why you would just want to change the throwout bearing and not the whole clutch assembly. It's the same amount of work.
The answer to your question would be ,you would have to remove the drive shaft, then the transmission, then the throwout bearing ,then the preasure plate and clutch. If you decide to go all the way, you should resurface your flywheel. This is an easier job with rear wheel vehicles then front wheel drive. Please let me know how you made out,GOOD LUCK.

1989 dodge dakota truck, 4cy, manual transmission. transmission has been slipping but failed to work this morning. It was suggested to me that the pressure plate was probably defective. are there checks i...

Well you have to get is a clutch job. This means pull the tranny, pull and replace the clutch disc, the pressure plate, and the throw out bearing. Also have the flywheel resurfaced. It makes no sense to take it completely apart and replace just one part, when all of them are worn out. Get a repair manual for a few bucks on ebay and see how involved it is before you start.

I have a 1994 dodge dakota 4cyl 2wd and sometimes my gears wont go into first or reverse have to pump the clutch then goes in gear what could be wrong

it could be a couple of things. Your throw-out bearing, which does the actual shifting when you shift the gears. the other is the clutch is worn not allowing the throwout bearing to fully engage. When you replace one it is best to replace both because the transmission has to be removed to replace either.
check the fluid level in the transmission and check underneath for any leaks as well.

The fan blade is loose & wobbles on the shaft on my dodge dakota

Fix it now or forever pick up the pieces...You have one of two problems possibly both...The fan clutch that the fan is bolted to has a bad bearing. replace it Or, the bearing in the water pump has failed. again...replace it. If fan clutch failed carefully check pump ...shaft bearing can be damaged by wobbling assembly. Seriously...don't ignore this if fan gets loose,it will damage far more than the problem you now have!!!
good luck!!

Clutch makes a squealing noise

The throw out bearing is going oout. The reason you hear the squeal when you push in the clutch is that is when the throw out bearing spins up. Rest of the time it does not spin.It is irratating, You should replace the entire clutch assembly when you replace the throw out bearing. Hope this helps, rate me high.

1998 Dodge dakota 4 cyl. manual trans.

You may want to try adjusting the clutch. I think Dodge have adjustment options. it seems that the throw out bearing is too close to the clutch and does not "throw out' as it should.
