Does anyone know how to take off a radiator fan clutch from a 1998 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V6
MY 1995 DAKOTA got hot because the radiator was rusted out. The fins on the radiator would crumble just by touching it. Replaced radiator, problem solved.
Clutch switches are usually located at the top of the clutch pedal.
i had a Dakota with the V8 .and if it is like the 97 dodge Dakota it will be on the housing from the top radiator hose
bottom left or bottom right of radiator
It is not adjustable.
I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.
Should be at the bottom or rear of radiator or remove lower radiator hose
Dead short to ground in the clutch safety switch?
on the bottom of the resivoir tank that is attached to the radiator
we had the same problem in our 99 dodge dakota, unbole the radiator from the frame, then unmount the trans cooler from the radiator then carefully bend the transcooler lines away from the passenger side of the radiator then is the hoses are disconected it shuld come right out. i hope i helped you
Dodge was able to meet the emission requirements with out an EGR valve. Nothing replaced it.
Theres a drain plug at the bottom of the radiator.. or you can undo the bottom hose..
Unscrew the drain plug, or pull the bottom radiator hose off
Drain the radiator
No, the freeze plugs are on the engine.
When can turn the fan freely with no resistense
the radiator fan stopped working on my 98 dodge dakota. it sounds like it tries to kick on but wont turn. what could be wrong if it is a relay, where is it?
it could be a number of things including..timing,thermostat,fan clutch,blockage in radiator,or blown valve cover gasket seals or worse blown head gasket
That would be the pressure plate.
Remove the plastic cover underneath the radiator(passenger side) to access the radiator drain and you will need a large screwdriver.
there are two metal looking lines that screw into the radiator that is the cooling side
