SOURCE: 1995 Dodge Dakota Pick up

go to Didgeforums.com.

I had a similiar problem, found the solution there. It was the wiring harnes on the drivers side under the hood, just above the wheel well. there are a cluster of wires in a bundle. I unpacked the bundle carefuly and sure enough the were two or three wires all coroded, had wite powder from corosion. repaired the connections and bingo. I posted details at dodgeforums.com. browse around there. I posted pictures as well. this is a common problem.

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Caravan Transmission not upshifting

Hello,
I also was concerned about my tranny in my 1998 dodge caravan. I replaced the fluid & filter and it worked for a while. I finally had to bring it to AAMCO Transmission and they gave me a free evaluation of it & an estimate for the job. I had the option of ignoring their evaluation results and bring it home or just bite the bullet and have it repaired. I thought I could get a lot more miles out of it so I had it fixed for $1400 with no regrets.

Perhaps if you can find a similar place with free evaluation & estimate then that would be the thing to do as you seemed to have covered all the other bases.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: location of spark plugs in 2005 dodge dakota

To change the sparks on a 2005 4.7L Dodge Dakota you will need the following:

  • Spark plug socket
  • Ratchet
  • Torque wrench
  • Extension
  • Flat-tip screwdriver
  • Make sure the truck is cold!!!

Note you will have to remove the air intake located at the top of the engine, and will have to move some of the coolant lines out of the way.

At the top of the engine there are 4 sparks on each side. The coils are held in place with a 10mm bolt. Undo the 10mm bolt and unclip the coil. Next pull out the coil.

Insert the socket, with extension into the spark plug hole.

Remove spark plug.

Check the gap on new spark plug, it should match stock.

tighten to approximately 25ft.lbs. (check spark-plug packaging for exact torque requirements).

repeat this process with all other sparks.

be sure that no dirt gets into the spark plug holes.

2005 dodge dakota tanny wont shift right after engine warm up what should i check


If you have the 3.7L V6 or 4.7L V8, your transmission is fully electronically controlled by a transmission control module (TCM). This module stores codes just like the PCM does for engine problems. Find a mechanic or a code reader that can read codes from the TCM to see if it has any codes stored, and what the codes indicate as the problem. If there are no codes, you may want to try just changing the fluid and filters (there are two) in the transmission.

Where the hell is the turn signal flasher located on a dodge Dakota 2005


Does not have one. It uses the instrument cluster and the integrated power module to run signals and generate indicator noise.

2005 Dakota 4wd sounds like it's engaging while engine is off.


IF I UNDERSTAND YOU CORRECTLY THEN YOU THE TRANSFER CASE SHIFT MOTOR ACTIVATING, THEN THERE ARE OTHER THINGS TO CHECK BUT A REAL QUICK CHECK WOULD BE TO DISCONNECT THE CTM USING APPROVED METHOD AND THEN SEE IF YOU HEAR THE SHIFT MOTOR NOW. IF YOU DON'T THEN AMONG THE CULPRITS YOU MAY NEED TO LOOK AT THAT PESKY TIMER MODULE, HOWEVER ALSO THOUGH YOU SHOULD CHECK ALL THAT RELATE TO 4WD CONTROL. THE REASON I MENTION THE TIMER EARLIER MODELS '00-'02'S HAD A HUGE ISSUES WITH THE TIMER MODULE, BUT IN YOUR YEAR THESE ISSUES WERE WORKED OUT SO KIND OF A CIRCULAR ANSWER BUT THE BEST I CAN OFFER WITH INFORMATION PREVIDED. IF YOUR ALSO HAVING ISSUES WITH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING AS WELL: WIPERS ,HEADLIGHTS ,REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY. THEN A HARD LOOK SHOULD BE TAKEN AT THAT TIMER MODULE.

2005 dodge dakota code p0430 p0700


Well code 430 is for a problem with the catalytic converter not being up to standard efficiency. Causes could be the cat, or one of the O2 sensors, or something with the fuel system.
Code 700 is a problem with the transmission control module or the link between the module and the computer. The module would need to be checked out.
You may want to clear the codes and drive the truck to see if they come back again.

A 2wd transmission on a 4wd truck?


It should drop right in with a new drive shaft for the 2wd. The frame should have extra holes drilled for the 2wd crossmember location.
