Good looking piece of ...
By Michael Mazzio on
1998 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
After the first few thousand miles
replaced the #1 spark plug every month
or so(cracked). Strange clunking sound
in steering. At 10000 replaced the
front brakes, then again every 10-16000
miles. At 18000 replaced rear shocks.
At 37000, just out of warranty,
Transmission rebuilt for the first
time. At 44000, rear rebuilt. At 46000,
lower and upper ball joints and outer
tie rods replaced. Odds and ends
replaced until 96000 where the
transmission was rebuilt a second time,
transfer case, back-up light switch and
have new seals put in steering box. I'm
at 166000 now, upper ball joints and
transfer case needs to be rebuilt
again. One good thing, truck still runs.
Nice stereo! Wish it played burned
cd's without popping it in and out
until the cd player read the cd.
Recalls on transmissions, rears & power
steering boxes. Strange clunking sound
in steering to be recalled as well.
Better brake equipment to handle the
size of the truck.
