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.

'13 Dodge Charger RT Muffler Delete
Posting a video of my Charger, just got the mufflers cut off, and pipe
welded in place. Sounds so much better.
Wanted to upload this video particularly, because when I was searching for
clips, I couldn't really find any showing what it sounded like driving with
the MDS kicked in. (When it shuts off 4 cyls).
I can assure you, simply deleting the mufflers, does not make the MDS
horrible, like ive read on numerous comments and forums. I really dont
notice a difference, unless I slowly accelerate with MDS still enabled, its
a tad louder, but nothing like a shitty Honda fart can. I may even cut the
reso's off, as its not as loud as id like.
