Whats wrong when a 98 dodge neon auto trans jerks when take off and jerks when you let off and when it shifts but does not slip like its racing what is wrong with it and what can you do?
\n. \nI agree with the fluid and filter change. I just changed the fluid and filter in my 98 and it made a big difference. When I first start my car and put it in reverse, the transmission just idles for a few seconds then slams into gear. Changed the fluid and filter, now she shifts smooth. Make s…ure you use the correct fluid, ATF+3 or ATF+4.\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nHave the transmission serviced with a complete fluid and filter change.\n. \ncheck trans moter mount if it still jerk after changing fluid or try putting stop slip made \nlucas oil product about $10.00 ( Full Answer )
I tried trouble shooting my 1993 dodge dynasty when the fuel pump went intermittent. We looked for the accident fuel shut off relay everywhere thinking it was an active thing rather than a passive relay near the air filter. As I remember it, the computer (in mine) shuts of the relay or rather doesn…'t turn it on and let it run--no power to the relay. I had a schematic of the Internet that showed two relays were involved-- That's all I can remember now--it's been months and "experts" gave me all sort of stupid and wrong information--trying to trouble shoot the pump in the tank--sensor wires and what not they were easy to see under the car. They had cross-over pumps on some Internet site for about $50 ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Answer \n. \nWhile standing in front your truck with the hood open, the tension pully you're looking for is the pulley at the far left of the engine. It's about 2-1/2" in diameter and is spring loaded. At least that's where it's located on a 96, V6, Dakota 4x4 Sport.\n. \nHope this he…lps. Good Luck!!\n. \n Answer \n. \nmore info to supplement the above, as you may not be able to discern a spring loaded pulley. On the top left side of the engine is the alternator and alternator pulley, top slight right of center of the engine is the air conditoner compressor/clutch pulley (very eloborate looking pulley...as it has a clutch assembley in its center)...now between and below those two pulleys are two more pulleys (one is the belt tensioner (idler) pulley) the other is the water pump pulley. The water pump pulley is the larger of the two...and it is smooth bore with no ridges or belt grooves on it at all. Now by process of elimination that leaves the idler (belt tensioner) pulley. But so as to be complete...I will describe it...it is ridged and grooved just like the alternator and air conditioner clutch pulleys are. It is larger than the alternator pulley but smaller than the air conditioner pulley. Now if you look what the idler pulley is attached to behind the pulley ...its on a short two to three inch arm that reaches down to a circular shaped device that mounts onto a bracket attached to the engine block...that my friend is the spring loaded belt tensioner...you might even have to change that one day...and boy is that fun..but I'll save that for another post!

It will *fit* because they offered that Dakota chassis with a V8. the 5.9 is a heavy engine. It might cause issues with the front end. A diesel Dakota is a cool idea though... This engine will fit but there are other issues that will arise if you are planning on the swap the pcm for the 5.9 will …be required for optimal performance and a tourque converter for a 5.9 is required due to the 5.9 being externally ballanced and the 5.2/3.9 being internally ballanced. depending on the year model of the donor the wiring harness does differ from year to year the injector plugs are different ect. good luck with the swap ( Full Answer )
Not a good idea. I have done this and Over Drive does not work nor does cruise control. The speedometer also reads off by the exact difference in the ratios of these tranys (3.06 vs 2.84) According to several forums I have checked, the 4T60E transmission in the 1994 Bonneville should only be replace…d by an exact match - meaning a 1994 vintage fw2 4T60E transmission. Swapping with other years is further complicated by the ODB1 vs ODB2 computer differences. ( Full Answer )

What fuse controls the brake lights on a 90 Dodge Dakota. All lights and turn signals work except no brake lights when brake pedal is pushed?
Answer . \nAfter further research I am answering my own question. It is fuse number 6 on the fuse block located under the dash and is a 10 amp fuse.
This might be hard but if you felt like you've done everything you could think of and nothing works is that a good time to just give up?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nMaybe, or you could try one more time just to make sure. There might be something you hadn't thought of yet.\n. \n. \nHOPEFULLY IT WILL PASS. \n. \nI AT TIMES WANTED TO DO THING THE WAY I THOUGHT WAS THE BEST. IT WAS ONLY WHEN I REALIZED THAT I CANNOT MAKE MY OWN HAPPIN…ESS, BUT ALLOW GOD TO HAVE TOTAL CONTROLL OVER MY LIFE THAT THINGS REALLY STARTED TO TURN AROUND. ( Full Answer )
1990 Honda accord What would cause the trans not to engage. Will engage in all gears for about 30 scds then nothing. its like it wants to work but wont.?
Answer . IF YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE TRANSMISSION , ITS SLIPPING AND IT SOUND LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE NOT BEEN PUTTING TRANSMISSION FLUID IN THE CAR ON A REGULAR BASIS OR YOU HAVE MESSED UP THE TRANSMISSION ALL TOGETHER YOU NEED TO TAKE TO A TRAMISSION SHOP AND LET THEM DO A DIAGNOSTIC CHECK ON THE C…AR, MORE AND LIKELY YOU NEED A TRANSMISSION REPLACEMENT. OR A COMPONENT REPLACE ON THE TRANS. ( Full Answer )
most common problem is the blower resistor In the firewall on the passenger side of the truck is the blower motor speed resister coils, they burn out alot. I could not find one for my Dakota so I got one from a dodge caravan and I changed the wirring, that is the most likely problem
My 1989 dodge Dakota 6 cylinder headlights just stopped working and the antilock light comes on when I depress the brakes?
These are 2 totally different problems with no relation to each other. The headlights not working can be a blown fuse, blown headlight bulb, or loose or corroded wiring.. The ABS light comes on because there is a problem with the ABS. Check the fluid level, and if it is fine, this problem should be… repaired by a professional. ( Full Answer )
Yes it will as long as the ECU is from the same drive train (E.g. 4x4, 4x2 automatic, manual.)
1. First check and make sure that you have freon in the system. 2. Check and make sure that you have both power and ground going to the a/c clutch. 3. Then check the low pressure switch that is located on the accumulator...............
the flywheel in an auto is called a flex plate. yes it can be installed backwards, but it will cause problems. the ring gear for the starter will not be at the correct distance for starter to engage.. the torque converter for the transmission bolts onto the flex plate. the flexplate has balancing… weights on it. these weights will be in the way of properly mounting the torque converter ( Full Answer )
Either the gauge is faulty, there is a broken or shorted wire between the gauge and the sending unit or the sending unit is faulty. Hopefully, it's not the sending unit; That's integrated with the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank and to replace it means replacing the entire fuel pump module. No…t a fun chore, and requires the removal of either the fuel tank or the truck box (take your pick, one method is about as much work as the other). ( Full Answer )
1997 dodge ram 1500 4wd 318 auto trans trans does not shift when it should takes to long to downshift and upshift any suggestions?
My 2000 D250 turbo diesel hesitates and all the gauges go crazy when it is shifting in to gear at around 60kms and 80kms. I had it in and they thought it maybe the air filter. It wasn't still going it.
What if your 2001 Chevrolet silv. auto trans in drive will not shift out but two levels then increases in RPMs in 1st two shifts in 2nd two shifts and 3rd nothing like neutral.?
It may be low on fluid. If not then the bands inside the transmission are bad or gone.
The neutral safety switch on the 1998 dodge neon is a nonadjustable switch. You can adjust the shifting arms, if the shifteris far enough off, then the neutral may not work properly.
The resistor just helps in the different speeds, and isn't used at all during hi speed, Access it under the passenger side of the dash.The resistor, and the blower motor are both easy to get to
First check to see if the front drive shaft turns. If it turns then check for 4wd light. If no light then your vacuum shift motor is not working. On the top of your axle there is box bolted on the axle with an eletrical conector and two vacuum tubes. There are three reasons why it doesn't work. 1. T…here is no vacuum to the motor, check for vacuum pressure at the motor. 2. the solenoid (part where vacuum hoses connects) put about 15hg vacuum on outside vacuum port and block off inside port. With vacuum on jack up front end and try to tun drivers side tire. If drive shaft turns when you turn the wheel then problem is related to vacuum. if not then either solenoid is bad or the guide bushing inside is bad. Unbolt the shift motor and try to slide the spline conector back and forth. You should be able to push the connector over fairly easy, you might have to turn the tire a little. If it does not slide over the other axle then the bushing is bad and you'll need to pull the axle and replace. If it slides over the other axle then the solenoid is bad. ( Full Answer )
Do you have to remove engine to replace the oil pan gasket in a 1995 Dodge Dakota 4x4 with 5.2L and auto trans. Timing chain cover is already removed. If replaceable in truck what are the steps?
I have the manual, and in it it just says to remove the front axle then drop the pan to remove it :( lol. Those are the steps, you have to remove the entire front axle assembly to remove the oil pan.
If the blower doesn't work on any speed the fuse may be blown. There should be a small pop out panel covering the fuse box on the left side of the dash between the door and the dash (only accessible with the door open). The appropriate fuse should be marked on either the cover or on the fuse box its…elf.. If the blower only works on one speed, then the most likely cause is a faulty blower motor resistor (very common). A new one from Dodge dealer usually costs about $20. Very easy to fix yourself. From the passenger side, under the dash, below and slightly left of the glovebox, look for a set of 5 wires going to a small connection (about 1" by 2.5") held in place by 2 small screws or bolts. Disconnect the wire harness and remove the two fasteners, pull out the resistor and replace with the new one. Reinstall the fasteners and the wire harness and test the blower on all speeds. Done.. Before purchasing the new blower motor resistor, it may be worthwhile to remove the old resistor as described above. Very often, but not always, a faulty resistor will be very obviously scorched.

I have a 97 but yours may be the same. There is a blower motor resistor. Remove cowl & & wiper arms & it is under there on pass side up toward fire wall. Have you checked the fuses?
i believe that the radio is controlled by more than one fuse. The fuse marked radio may be good but the radio runs through other circuits as well. Check all fuses and quite possibly look for a shorted light( ie. under the hood, engine light) That was causing the problem on mine. It had shorted out a…nd kept blowing the fuse everytime it was replaced. Fixed the short, replace the fuse and radio works fine now. Get a wiring schematic and follow the paths that connect to the radio, then check those components for shorts. ( Full Answer )
first check if you have power to motor. Key on & switch on.Check if you have power at connecter at motor. If power at the motor-replace motor. No power then check the resistor, The resistor has to have power to it & out of it to motor motor at all 3 speeds. Don't forget to check you fuses first. I h…ave a fuse in my truck in fuse box under the dash & another one in fuse box under the hood ( Full Answer )
The main cooler is the passenger side radiator side tank. The optional cooler is an air cooler in front of the radiator.
what will make the brake light not work on a 1996 dodge dakota? fuses are good and bulbs are good
Should be 'slip on' type retained only by wheelnuts and the brake caliper. Jack up the front end and support safely on blocks or stands. Then remove the wheels. Now remove the brake calipers (usually 2 7mm hex key bolts per caliper) and hang them up with wire. Do not let calipers hang by the brake… hose! Also do not allow the brakes to be applied without the rotor between the brake pads! Now the rotor should slide right off the hub. Installation is same steps in reverse. ( Full Answer )
Trust me, it works. Your problem is the fuel level sensing unit connected to your fuel pump. Change your fuel pump and your problems will be solved.
First check the fuses. Then check the blower motor resistor (If you still have one speed left that works, it's a sure sign of a bad resistor). The resistor is located under the passenger side dash. You'll see a 5 wire harness leading to it, and it will be held in by two screws. Remove the screws, pu…ll out the resistor and inspect it, if it looks crispy, replace it. They're about $20-$30 at your Dodge dealer. Also inspect the wiring harness near the connection for any signs of overheating and repair if necessary.. ( Full Answer )
It is plugged into the side of the transmission on the Driver's side. It is a connector with one tan wire and one Black/violet wire.
No. That transmission has a computer controlled electronic governor. If it is not shifting properly you need to start by checking PCM codes.
Will sometimes do nothing when you turn the key on but lights on the dash come on 2001 dodge Dakota?
be more specific, you mean lighs in dash come on but starter doesn't crank? do you hear a click, could be your starter solenioid is going , in a 01 truck i would replace whole starter, if not clicking could be ignition switch going bad, loose wire somewhere
Any vehicle comes from the factory with an alternator that is big enough for it. If you have added things to the vehicle that draw more current and it will fit, it will not hurt anything. Cost would be the only other factor.
Could be torque converter going bad or cylinoid in a certain gear is burning up and going bad.

When this happened on my 98 Dakota, it was a loose wire in the steering column. $4 part, $160 labor to find it. Good luck.
Can a dodge Dakota 4wd with auto trans be safely towed behind a motor home with all wheels on the ground?
Not unless you remove both front and rear driveshafts. Failure to do so WILL damage your transmission and possibly also your 4x4 transfer case.
Start off and watch the tachometer. You start off in 1st gear so it you see if shift 3 times you have a 4 speed, and if it shifts 4 times you have a 5 speed. The RPMs will drop at every shift point. But you may have a 4 speed with overdrive. If so you will have a button to turn the overdrive off.
Nothing, really. The 4wd indicator light may or may not light up, but in a 2wd truck, it has no function. It's just a part of the "mass production" manufacturing process. 2wd and 4wd trucks use most of the same parts, especially their bodies and chassis, so, in many cases, the manufacturer uses a s…ingle part (in this case, a dash panel) which will be functional in either model of truck. This way, they can save costs by just having one particular part to manufacture and store, and they can have just one assembly line for truck bodies instead of two. This also allows manufacturers to more easily and cheaply react to consumer demand. ( Full Answer )
If you really want a 4 wheel drive Dakota, you are better off buying it that way.
Your Neon is front-wheel drive and doesn't have a transmission, it makes use of a transaxle mated to a transverse-mounted (sideways) engine. A Dakota is rear or four wheel drive and uses a conventional transmission mated to a conventionally mounted engine. Totally incompatible.
That depends on exactly what linkage and joint you are referring to. Some joints can be replaced alone and some can't. You'll have to ask a more specific question.
Sounds like an antenna or coaxial cable problem, especially if you're still getting some AM frequencies. AM receivers can often pick up stations even with the lack of antenna input, but FM receivers are pretty unforgiving. Check that the coaxial cable is plugged properly into the back of the radio, …then check, if necessary, the connection at the base of the antenna, assuming the antenna is still there. Those are the two most likely locations for coax trouble. ( Full Answer )
i just had this problem on my 93 Dakota it was the switch in the dash! it was a very simple fix the part was about $12.00 at autozone and it took about 15 min to fix.
Most likely, no. The transmissions are different lenghts, and the truck body styles are different. Most likely, no. The transmissions are different lenghts, and the truck body styles are different.
It is the spin on style filter inside the transmission pan. It is the spin on style filter inside the transmission pan.
The transmissions should be the same, but the torque converters are different. The transmissions should be the same, but the torque converters are different.
There where a couple of available sizes. The label on the driver's door jamb will list the original size.
Check the top three: Bad fuse Bad light bulbs And if those check out OK, then check for bad wires to the lights. . Chances are good that the DRL module is toast (Daytime Running Light). This is located on the right hand side of the engine as your looking from the front of the truck. Locate…d on the right fender near the windshield washer tank. The module is about $125.00 ~ $150.00, cheaper from a wrecking yard. Now there could be a few things to keep in mind, emergency brake must be off, vehicle in gear and moved a few feet this should trigger the module, the lights should come on once the truck moves a few feet. Yeah I know....but they set this one up to get a signal from the speedometer to activate the Daytime running lights....so it needs to move before the DRL module gets the signal from the speedometer. Check the fuses in the black box on the same fender, the DRL fuse lives in there, not under the dash. ( Full Answer )
