Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab
You need to unbolt the starter and let it hang if you can and then turn the key on as if you were starting it. See if it turn over without being in against the flywheel. If it does turn over then it may have been bound up against the flywheel and locked up. They make shim packs for shimming the starter out from the flywheel. In other words some starters you purchase need to be shimmed away from the flywheel some. Most of the time they all work without having to do this but sometimes you have to. Also could be that the starter is just bound up. You might have someone try turning the key as if starting and you can tap the starter with a hammer and see if it goes. Just be careful you have a standard pickup that you have it out of gear and parking brake set. When they are trying to start it you tap with a hammer on the starter.
