There should be a nut in the shaft to hold it in place.

    Sorry, I was thinking of something else, it is a bolt and nut that runs through the split and tightens down on the shaft.

Gauges won't work on a 1987 dodge dakota


Most cars have a voltage regulator behind the dashboard that supplies a stable voltage for the gauges. Have a look, if you follow the wires from the gauges you will probably find one wire from each gauge going to a small regulator box. If you cant get a new one an electronic technician can build one for you.

Light smoke is coming from under the hood can u tell me what i should do and is it safe to drive for now


I don't know which engine you have but if it's a V6 it's very likely the valve cover gaskets - they tend to get brittle and allow oil leakage. If the smoke is from the sides of the engine that's likely the cause. If it's from the rear it's probably a half-moon seal.

I own a 1987 doge dakota and when I was driving it this morning a green triangle poped up under the gas gage what could that mean??


I assume this is a manual transmission dakota? The triangle is suppose to light up indicating to you to shift the transmission to a higher gear. This was in theory a device to help you get the best gas mileage. It is also known as a "dummy" light.

Will 1994 dodge dakota 4x4 rear end match up to my 1995 dodge dakota 4x4. gear ratio wise


There should be a silver tag under one of the bolts on the rear ends. The numbers must match. If no tag is present with one wheel off the ground count the number of rotations and note the clock position of the final position of the drive shaft to make the wheel turn 2 complete revolutions. 3.50 rear end = 3 full turns of the drive shaft plus a half turn (6 o'clock.)

Replacing camshaft position sensor, Sable 2003,Ohv


usually if the magnet in the sensor comes out it destroys the cam position shaft,(it should have a half moon shape when u remove the sensor from the cam pos/oil pump drive. if the half moon is damaged or missing u must replace the cam pos/oil pump drive, and yes it is timed with the engine. wot i have done is try to locate where the half moon was on the drive it usually leave a trace of where it was. now index where the half moon is at remove hold down bolt and remove the driver assy. install the new drive, clock the half moon shaft to match the one u just removed once u get the half moon shaft where u want it and the oil pump rod alines and the whole housing is down install the hold down clamp. now to get rid if that check engine lite youll have to plug a scanner in and look at the live data adjust the cam position till u have plus or minus 2 degrees
