Where can I find information on which transfer case my 1998 Durango 5.2 has, the NV 231 or 242?


look at the transfer case shifter knob, if it has 2h, 4h, 4pt, n, 4l, you have a 242.

Cant find thermostate


If you have the 4.7 motor, your T stat is at the engine end of the lower radiator hose. If you have the 5.9 motor, your t stat is at the engine end of the upper hose.

In either case, be careful removing/installing the bolts for the housings as they are really easy to strip or break.

Transfer case removal


first remove both front and rear driveshafts. Then remove skid plate underneath transfer case. Remember to unplug the electric motor wiring harness for explorers with electronic four wheel drive switching. Remove vacuum line on the top of transfer case. Unbolt Speedometer cable mount from top/rear of transfer case. Remove five bolts connecting the transfer case to the transmission, this step will cause some transmission fluid to leak from the shaft housing (approx. half a litre) so place a drain pan underneath. Remember to either place a jack or wood blocking under transfer case before removing the last bolt connecting the transfer case as it is heavy (approx. 80-90 lbs.).

How do you put a 2001 dodge durango in neutral to dolly tow it. I know to put the transfer case in neutral but can't seem to shift the transfer case into neutral, 4h and 4L and awd shift


If your going to put the front wheels on a dolly then it won't matter whether or not the front end is in neutral,if the rear is going to be lifted then it is a good idea to remove the drive shaft,this will keep the transmission from turning.

99 Durango 5.2L - Had minor vibration while driving for less then a month. Two days ago all the ATF was left on the side of the highway. Service tech said the bolt on OD between the transmission and...


If it's just the bolt that is cracked, replace the bolt, if the transmission housing is cracked. You may have to replace the transmission housing if not the transfer-case housing. If the crack is not to bad you can call around who can weld aluminum and have them weld a bead over the cracked housing, at worst your going to have to replace the transmission since it's cheaper then taking your transmission apart to replace the housing or the transfer-case. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad answer any question you may have.

98 Dodge Durango parking lights don't work!


sounds like you could have a loose connection somewhere in the wiring at the parking lights.. check the blub housing to make sure all the tabs to hold the bulb are there,,, wiggle the wires a little and see if they are broken loose... also check the grounds... see if any are loose or broken..

Removing '99 Durango starter


Make sure you have all of the bolts off. Sometimes they hide one really well. Then just tap lightly on the starter case to free it up.
