Remove the transmission oil pan, it is messy. No drain plug. After that remove the fluid filter. Then you will see the valve body. This is what holds all the solenoids. On one side of the valve body there will be two solenoids that are the same, both close together. The 1-2 shift and the 2-3 shift solenoids. The are held in with clips. Look at it and you will see them. pull the clip and pull the solenoid out. don't lose the clip. Just a note though. If some one told you the codes and didn't diagnose the problem, you could be throwing away $100. It could be the wiring harness in the transmission, or wiring on the out side of the transmission. Or the transmission control module.

SOURCE: how to replace water pump on 1995 dodge dakato 5.2 liter V8

When I do those I find it's easier to get some of the stuff out of the way. Fan shroud, Alternator, AC compressor(don't remove AC hoses just swing it over to the side) and the AC/alternator mount bracket. If you don't have the special hose clamp plyers they are worth buying. (those clamps are difficult with regular plyers) The fan clutch has a special wrench which is thinner. When you start the job break loose the fan clutch before you remove the belt. It keeps tension on the pulley. The nut is normal threading and usually comes loose with a sharp rap of the hammer on the fan clutch wrench.
Here is an illustration of the water pump bolts. I hope this helps you out. let me know how it goes.6f7219e.gif

Bad shift solenoid. Easy t replace but messy, You have to drop the transmission pan. There are 2 shift solenoids. The 2 that look the same. I would replace both of them. Pull them out slowly, there are pistons and springs behind them. You don't want to loose them.

My 1999 Dodge Dakota 2WD, 3.9 V6, has major hesitation shifting from 2nd to 3rd and also downshifts in and out of OD at about 55 to 60 mph. Above 60, it wants to stay in 3rd only. Took valve body off and...


Is the 1-2 shift high also? When you had the valve body off did you check the screens on the governor solenoid and the 3-4 shift solenoid? These tend to plug up.

Where's the oil filter on the 2004 dodge dakota


I am not sure which engine you have, but the oil filter on Dodge products is usually within a few inches of the oil pan, mounted either vertically or horizontally. In 2004, the 3.9 liter V-6 was replaced with a 3.7 liter engine, and the 5.9 liter V-8 was replaced with the 4.7 liter V-8.

I have a 99 dodge dakota w the codes po 753 and po 720


Just ask for the 3,4 shift solenoid, in which case the transmission pan has to be taken off, the filter, and possibly the valve body to get at the solenoid, I don't have my manual right now, so I can't tell you which solenoid it is.
The speed sensor is usually screwed into the side of the tranny near the back end of it, don't confuse it with the back up light switch, that's screwed in somewhere in the center of the tranny. Hope this helped a little. Good Luck.
