What fault codes do you have? to check for fault codes using the check engine light blink method do the following, turn the key to run and then off, then to run and then off, then to run and watch the check engine light, count the blinks, there will be a pause and then more blinks, that is the code(s) So lets say it blinks 2 times and then 5 times, that is code 25. Google the code or codes under the heading: "Dodge OBD1 fault codes"

SOURCE: changed water pump on 1994 dodge dakota sport

I have a 94 dodge dakota sport 5spd. I had that same problem recently. Thought it was the pickup coil, so I changed it and my truck would still not start. And the rotor and there was still nothing. Then I changed the Crank Sensor and THAT was why it wouldn't turn over.

SOURCE: 1997 dodge dakota v6 engine wont start replaced

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.

SOURCE: 1997 DODGE RAM 1500 360 VERY LOW IDLE

I think you have ruled out the engine with all the parts you have replace. The transmission torque convertor is in lock up mode all the time. The engine is having to hard of a time to stay at the normal idle. The over drive clutches and soleniod are most likely damaged in the transmission.
I think you should take the vehicle to a trasnmission shop , The can check the torque convetror soleniods and pressure control soleniod.

The oil light coming on bothers me. I know you have the rebuilt engine in the vehicle but I think the oil pump in the engine is starting to go out or could be weak. The lower bearings connected to the crank shaft might be starting to leak. Have the oil pressure checked .

SOURCE: 96 Dodge Intrepid ES, engine stalls

Find your firewall electrical junction block (where all the wires enter the cabin on the passenger side) and with a zip tie pull up the wire bundle so it does not ride on the upper tie rods and, fasten the zip tie to anything that is solid in the engine compartment and, let me know what happens

2004 dodge dakota p/u is overheating after a 10 mile ride. new water pump, new upper radiator hose with 13 psi cap. radiator removed and checked at shop. said it has good flew. will replace lower...


Have you checked the thermostat?

Once the engine is up to operating temp both the upper and lower hoses should feel about the same temp and the radiator should be hot all the way across. If the hoses are two different temps and the radiator never gets hot than there is a flow issue. Most likely the thermostat is stuck or partially stuck closed.

The other possibility is you have not burped all the air out of the system after you made the repairs. It is important to let the vehicle warm at at idle with the radiator cap removed to help remove the air in the system. Once the engine is up to operating temp raise the RPM a little and continue to add coolant as necessary. Once the coolant level remains steady replace the radiator cap and test drive.

Hope that helps. If you have any more questions I'll be happy to answer them.

2001 dodge dakota sport 4.7. i flushed the radiator, now it won't take all of the antifreeze that is required for refill. help


You have an air bubble. Look for plug on top of the intake manifold next to the thermostat housing, Remove that and fill until coolant starts to run out. Put plug back in loosely and continue filling until no more goes in. Tighten plug and replace your radiator cap. Fill overflow bottle and start engine.

98 dodge dakota slt 318. no heat, low operating temp


First thing first, turn off the engine wait for 15 - 20 mints, open the radiator cap and fill it up to the top then start the engine and see if it needs more water adn add as needed, then wait till you ca see the water circulating in the radiator now instead of corculating if it starts boiling out shut the engine replace the thermostat and do the whole thing again.

unless there is water in the engine the gauge will not be able to show the actual temp of the engine, so always malke sure you have water / antifreeze
