It may be the plastic/rubber fill tube, this attached from the top of the tank to the fill with a hose clamp at each end. If you climb under the side where you fill up from and look up you will see it, as it resembles a radiator hose. Good Luck Tim

My 1994 dodge dakota v8 magnum appears to be leaking what I think is tranny fluid around the front of the engine. Does anyone know what my cause this?


The tranny fluid could be leaking from a line or cooler if coming from the front of the engine. The fluid is usually cooled by the radiator if an automatic transmission and is cooled in the radiator tanks. It may also have an external cooler attached to the front of the radiator area that can also leak

My 1991 dodge dakota v6 2 barrel is using way to much gas 150mi per 16 gal tank what is the cause


check for fuel leaks. from the gas tank, to the fuel lines, to the carb. i assume its an electronic throttle body 2 barrel. i have seen those leak internaly from the inside of the carb/throttle body causing exsess fuel to be used. you could also have a very bad fuel/air ratio going on there. could be bad o2 sensors. but i would start with the leaking fuel first.

Have wet drivers floor, believe heater core leak


1st make sure it's the heater core. Usually it's the passenger side that is wet. To confirm it's the heater core, 1. do you smell antifreeze? It has a sweet smell, and should be easy to notice it if leaking. 2. Do have a problem with the windows fogging up, and turning on the defroster doesn't help or makes it worse? If the core is leaking, the moisture from the leak will fog up the windows, and the defrost mode struggles to clear the glass, as moisture is blown up the vents onto the glass. If 1 and 2 don't exist, the water on the drivers side is most likely a leak from rain along the door gasket, or windshield, or firewall.

Fuel pump location on 87 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V-6


Should be throttle body injected,if so in the gas tank. If it's carburated it's on the passenger side of the engine about mid-way down the front on the block,under the alternator.

1995 dodge dakota antifreeze leak


Check out your freeze plugs. They are thin metal cups that press fit into the side of the block. Use a mirror and a light to inspect while the engine is running.

99 dodge dakota has gas smell in cab when heater or ac is on


sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!
