90 Dodge Dakota 4WD auto trans works then just like nothings there?
Possible bad torque converter, low fluid level, bad clutch packs

\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 helps. 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!
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 dista…nce 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
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.
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.
Could be torque converter going bad or cylinoid in a certain gear is burning up and going bad.
Dry fill can be about 12 quarts, filter service is about 6 quarts.

Rear abs was standard. 4 wheel was optional.
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.
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 single 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.
Dodge Dakotas do not, and have never, had transaxles.
On the 4.7l v8 it is in the rear of the oil filler housing.
