Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota
Trans not staying locked in while in overdrive after driving at hwy speeds for about half an hour. Took a long trip and after a couple of hours, engine light came on, rpms fluctuated by a 1000, cruise was dropped, although light was still on. Reset cruise and didn't have anymore trouble with lock up or fluctuation in rpms for the rest of the trip out or back, and the engine light went off an hour before I got to destination. Once I got back home the problem returned. So, do I have a trans problem or an electrical one?

Since you have a Laredo this should be where it is going in and out of overdrive. The reason is because 60mph is right at the end of the power range before going into overdrive. The other reason on your idle fluctuation is due to the cooling fan kicking on and off. Higher RPM's occur as the engine is trying to cool back down after reaching optimal temp. I due have a partial solution if you want better performance out of your jeep and will help MPG. You can replace the spark plugs and air filter for both mpg and performance. Local auto store should be able to recommend platnium or iridium plugs for your jeep. But K and N is the best air filter to replace it with. It will cost around 50 dollars but it has a lifetime warranty and is cleanable. If you decide on new plugs make sure to spend a few extra bucks and get some with a 3 to 5 year warranty. Just replace them before the warranty is up. Stephen
