Remove the dash panel (pops off), then all the necessary screws, and it comes right off.
I have a 2000 dakota, 3.9L. I don't know what the stated oil capacity is in the manual, but when I change the oil, the most it will take is 4.5 quarts.
Does anyone know how to take off a radiator fan clutch from a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V6
***SUM'S Answer***- Your thinking a ford engine by saying 5.4L. Your dodge Dakota is a 5.2L 318cu.in. They take 5 quarts of oil.
5w30 or 10w30
take a long thin screwdriver and stick it into the "hole" where the cable goes into the latch. Pry from right to left, this will pop the hood. I just had it happen to my 2000 Dakota.
take to trans shop, its electronic
aperantly take the light out
The glove box is integral into the dashboard - so the only way to take off the glove box is to remove the entire dashboard.
4.5 then check it after you start it
4 to 6 quarts, depending on which engine.
Automatic uses ATF+3 or +4.
The dakota did not have a 5.7LThe 5.2/5.9L's took 5 quartsThe 4.7L took 6 quartsThe dakota did not have a 5.7LThe 5.2/5.9L's took 5 quartsThe 4.7L took 6 quarts
take it to a qualified dodge mechanic
yes, many will take the v8s and drop them in where the old 3.9 wer without changing transmissions
depends what was in the 98 dakota. if you take out a v8 and put in a v6 you will need a whole new computer fulelines and whos knows what. and the 88 might possibly be carburated and the 98 fuel injected.
