Should be a sticker on the driver's door or door jamb, with tire size and recommended pressure. Discount Tire's web site calls for either a 215/75R15 or 235/75R15. This assumes you have the original sized wheels on it. If you basically using it as a car, not carrying loads, towing, or driving on dirt roads, the 215s should be OK, otherwise I'd go with the 235s. What size do you have now?

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota


Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

2001 dakota drivers side rear wheel fell off driving down the street. studs are ruined as well as rim. how do i replace the studs. thanks for any assistance


I don't have a solution, but I thought it was really strange (coincidence?) that you reported this in June of 2010, and here it is September 2010 I just ran into the same problem. Same year truck (2001) and same tire (paasenger side rear). Only I heard a lot of noise coming from what I thought was a flat tire. So I had my brother drive the truck while I got in the bed of the truck and located the sorce of the noise. When he applied the brakes it looked as though the tire was going to come right off and I was like "Holy ****.....stop the truck!"

One lug was actually already broken but the tire was very loose on the hub. I then went to tighten the other lugs and 2 more snapped off (total of 3 broken) trying to tighten them. So the others sustained stress from all the movement which made them weaker. Right now I have 3 (maybe 4 can't remember now?) holding that tire on until I fix it.

Is this a defect in the 2001 Dodge Dakota? (I have a 2001 Dodge Dakota Quad cab with a 4.7 and about 95k miles). I was also hoping I woudn't have to take the who rear axle out. Once I get it up on the lift I'll be able to see it better.

I have dodge 1996 grqnd caravan when i drive fast


Check your tires and wheels. You may have a out of balance tire or a bent wheel. If it's not that type of vibration check your motor mounts because if the mount at the rear of the firewall between the motor and trans is broken your experiencing a cv axle vibration

When place in four wheel steering becomes very hard, and pulling in my driveway front tires locked up. only happens in 4 wheel. 2005 dakota


A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?

If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.

Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.

Severe oil leak form the rear of the engine of a 1996 Dodge Dakota V8


Your rear engine seal is probably shot. I wish I could tell you that it's an easy job to fix. You "could" try some of that engine stop leak stuff which is supposed to repair dried out seals, but I have never had luck with that stuff.

You'll probably need to get the seal replaced, which involves pulling the transmission off. Luckily its a rear wheel drive truck - it's no where near has hard as a front wheel drive!!

Van shakes while driving


I've had several of these vans with this problem, check the transaxle for low fluid. Each of mine would start shaking when the fluid was low.

93 dodge dakota shakes at 80 km/hr


A very common problem is faulty tires or incorrect wheel balance of the front tires. Check for a bulge or a wear on the tires. If all is in fine find a mechanic to check your wheel bearings. Check for a broken strut assembly or shock absorber. Check for tire rod bushings and the balance rod. Check complete front suspension.
