Dodge Dakota 4.7L 4x4 Dual Exhaust Sounds with Mandrel Bending Solutions (MBS) Dual Exhaust...
A video clip showing before/after sounds of my 2000 Dodge Dakota quad cab
4x4 4.7L Magnum V8 with the stock Exhaust system and a performance stainless steel
dual catback / muffler back Exhaust
system from Mandrel Bending Solutions (MBS). The muffler is from Full
The look, sound, and fitment is excellent, as was the price. The system
sounds a bit louder in the video than in real life. It's not too loud or
too quiet. Inside the car, it's nearly silent at idle. It's mellow under
part throttle and has a nice bark at full throttle.
Overall, I'm very happy with the Exhaust system.

Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the
The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the
Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket.
This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and
the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose).
This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to
replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as
opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without
removing the A/C and Alternator bracket).
However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower
heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed
to be corrected.
