I don't know where to get the color code, but you can get yourself a cheap test light at your local parts house, then attach the wire of it to a good ground. Then turn left turn signal, and push the point of test light into each of the connections and when it lights up, makr left turn signal on a pice of tape and apply it to that waire, and so forth till you have identified each of the four wires. One of these wires will be ground so it won't light you up, The outlet has left turn, right turn, and tail lights. The stop lights come out on the turn signals.

Yes ,regardless of which seal is used as you have to loosen main bearings so the crank can be moved down as the seals are crush type and you wont have the clearance to fit the new one,Split seals (2 piece)are the easiest to fit without moving the crank too much.The one piece seal also means trans removal.As far as removing trans completely you may be able to move it back while its being held up by a trolley jack and only pull it back far enough to give you the clearance needed.Autos are far easier than manuals.If its the rope type seal a special tool is used to fit them and its not a tool that is sold just anywhere as that type of seal kept noahs ark from sinking and havnt been used in engines for many many years.

Do not fill the new fuel filter with fuel before installation, which may bring impurities into the fuel system and cause failure or damage. The replacement of fuel filter shall be carried out in cold condition to avoid the danger of fire caused by fuel splashing on the hot surface.
1. Clean around the fuel filter.
2. Use a suitable filter wrench to remove the filter. Collect the leaked fuel in the oil collection container.
3. Clean the joint surface on the filter base.
4. Coat the sealing ring with diesel oil and install a new fuel filter. Tighten the fuel filter according to the instructions on the filter.
5. If necessary, exhaust the air in the fuel system, see "exhaust of fuel system".
If equipped with a water separator: replace the fuel filter at the same time, and wipe the plastic cup water collector under the filter with a soft cloth.

Do you have an alternator with 2 field connections and one power output connection and a separate regulator?
If you do,with the engine running,remove the connection from the regulator and jump across the 2 connections in the wire harness,this will give you full field and the alt should show a charge,use a voltmeter on the battery and watch for an increase in voltage.If voltage increases,the regulator is bad or the reg ground is bad.(try cleaning the mounting bolt areas before replacing it)If no increase in voltage,remove the 2 field connections from the alt and ground one and apply battery voltage to the other with the engine running.You should see an increase in voltage if the alt is good.I am assuming you have battery voltage at the alt power output connection at all times?

oil pressure switch bad or your oil pump is going or the crank berings going

code p 1491 is a radiator fan control relay circuit
the engine going to full rpm and not going anywhere is a transmission control problem
could be torque converter clutch servo / solenoid , dirty oil , low oil , low oil pump pressure , TR sensor or TCM
you got ti cheap so you can expect problems
best advice is to take it to an accredited specialist automatic transmission professional for a proper diagnosis and quote
any where else will get you a new transmission response with out properly explaining the problems
That fact that it is driving and got you home indicates that it is not a terminal problem , just electronic controls and sensors

Dodge Pickup... | Answered on Aug 15, 2017

the problem is that it is making contact in the solenoid housing before the pinion is engaged in the ring gear
have that measurement checked again as the pinion has to be fully extended before the contacts are closed to spin the starter armature

While under your vehicle, sometimes on the top or your rear end, there is an opening that allows air to enter and exit when pressure builds up. Other models have a hose that connects to some part of the rear end, just follow this hose to its end and make sure its not clogged or pinched.
