This is my 1993 Dodge Dakota driving into a large mud hole. It did it easy.
I stopped when I saw some water coming in the door seams.

Hey guys! This is my first video of my 93 Dodge Dakota. It has 4 wheel
drive with low range, an Extended cab, and a 6.5 foot bed. Loaded with
power options. The 5.2L 318 engine is running and sounding great! Thanks
for watching guys! Please comment about the truck and give me some
constructive criticism. Thanks!
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.
dodge dakota big block 383 with air ride! 1lowdingo
my 94 dodge dakota 383 big block. single handedly built in my spare time
over winter in my garage. there are barely any parts available for this big
block swap so some of the hand crafted parts were a pain! motor mounts,
headers, oil pan and cross-member were just to name a few but its all worth
it to say BUILT NOT BOUGHT!
