Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab

1 Answer

How do I disconnect the rear drive shaft of my 2000 Dodge Dakota (quad cab) 4x4 V8 5.9? I took the 4 bolts off, but everything remains solid. The front half looks like it should slide out, so do I need to pop the cross & bearings apart in the back in order to remove the shaft? Will it ruin something if I drive it without the rear drive shaft connected? Thanks! Linford W.

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.)

2000 Dodge Dakota 4 wheel drive hub wont budge


These can REALLY stick solidly in place. I usually get them off with one of two methods: A big slide hammer attached to the wheel studs using a hub adapter or by pushing against one of the hub mounting bolts using my biggest air hammer with a flat hammer bit in it. You will wreck the head of the bolt doing this so you need to have another one on hand if it comes to that. I turn the bolt nearly all the way back in so there is just an 1/8" of room between the head of the bolt and the steering knuckle [to provide the maximum thread surface on which the force will be applied] and then rattle on it with the air hammer unit it moves a bit. You may need to move this bolt around to the other holes to work the hub free. Clean the corrosion and rust out of the bore that the hub mounts in before installing the new hub so it will go back in properly. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

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!!
