there are two versions of the 2.5l that are used in dodge dakotas

#1. 2.5l OHC (over head cam) if you have this motor you will notice a big black plastic housing which contains a timing BELT!!!

#2. 2.5l OHV (over head valve) if you have this motor you will notice no big black platic housing but more of an ovalish looking metal plate located somwhere on the front face of the block.
