1997 Dodge DakotaNovember 17, 2013Started yesterday with a whining pitch, particularly when disengaging the clutch. This morning it will not turn over at all Keywords:dakotaNo Start 1 thought on “1997 Dodge Dakota” Freeautomechanic November 17, 2013 at 5:21 pm Noises are harder to diagnose without actually hearing them, with that said here is a good read: http://www.freeautomechanic.com/auto-repair.html With that in mind, I would have to guess that maybe the Alternator was making the noise and was not charging the battery. This might be why the engine will not turn over at all. A side thought might be that the throwout bearing is going out and making the whining noise you heard and the no start issue would be unrelated to that. If this is the case, I would have the battery tested along with the alternator and neutral safety switch. Comments are closed.
