The temp sensor is not where it should be where would it be?

I looked in the manual for engine check light problem. went to the section that covered the problem and where the temp sensor should be is a factory plug. looked all over the cooling system and could not locate the sensor.

It sounds like you have a wire or wire bundle pinched somewhere causing an open or a short. As you just replaced the valve cover gaskets, check very closely in all areas that you worked on for the routing and proper security of wires and bundles.
Not that it makes any difference in your issue, but didn't the Dakota go to a 3.7L V6 in 2004 (as opposed to the 'old' 3.9L)?

Sounds like a short to ground on the temp sensor circuit. What happens if you leave the sensor unplugged ? It should set a code in the engine computer.

Engine light on, code p0704 what does it mean

The check engine light is an early warning system to protect your engine from malfunction. There are several sensors within your engine that trigger this light. If you have your owners manual there will be a section in it that tell you what to check. The basics are ;
engine oil level
coolant level
blocked air filter
but the list can go on so look at the manual.

Pontiac 2000 rough idle engine light

Depending on what year and model, you may be able to check the ECM for trouble codes yourself. Either way you need to know what the codes are.
My guess would be they disconnected the air temp sensor in the air filter box. Look for a sensor in the air filter or the hose going out to the front of the engine compartment that is missing a plug.

Check the connectors at the PCM or ECU; lose ones could cause this problem. Something else to consider is to get the sensor from the dealership; many of these sensors are very sensitive and aftermarket ones tend to not be calibrated correctly.

1995 ford exploere check engine light is on/loss of power

P0327 - Knock Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
P0332 - Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Low Input (Bank 2)

Have you had the engine worked on? this looks like maybe the spark knock sensor is either disconnected or has been overtightened in the block, to check this locate the knock sensor at the base of the cylinder block just above where the oil pan bolts to the block, it is round (with a wire connector going to it) with a large hex nut configuration to pull it out, it is in the water jacket so if you do pull it drain the cooling system and the engine block, if you replace it DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN IT! tighten to suggested torque setting in factory service manual.
