Question by  Haylie (84)

How to you take out the transmission of a Dodge Dakota?

The transmission in my Dodge is slipping.


Answer by  Mark89 (173)

you will have to unbolt the engine from the transmission bell housing and unbolt the engine from the mounts and slide it forward. You will have to disconnect the drive shaft from the transmission and unbolt the transmission from its mountings and disconnect the wire harness. Depending on how you remove you may need to remove the frame cross member.

First disconnect battery and drain fluid. Then loosen bolts on the under side of the vehicle. Next drop the pan, gasket, and catch access fluid. Next, disassemble bolts of the torc converter and fly wheel. Then with something that will hold the weight, begin to disconnect the transmission. Be sure the transmission lines are loosened also.

First remove the driveshaft from the rear of the tranny. Place a tranny jack under the transmission. Remove all electrical plugs going to it, the gearshift levers, etc... Then you will need the proper tools to unbolt the tranny from the rear of the engine. Once you get them all out start to back the tranny out very slowly.

Basically all you need to do is unhook all the lines, unbolt it from the engine, unbolt the flywheel, remove the drive shaft, unbolt the crossmember, slide the trans back, and drop it down carefully on a your jack.
