Asked by Nov 10, 2014 at 11:15 PM about the 1997 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr SLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Spark plugs needed to be replaced. We
replaced 2 but the other 2 were too tight
wouldn't loosen. He jumped the truck with
his car and when he started it, it blew
smoke like a bull. And shut down. What
does this mean? I've had so many people
tell me something different. If needed I can
provide more detail to the best of my ability.

You need to spray those plugs down with rust penetrate a couple times and let sit a hour or two ; maybe over night. Be sure you use a six point socket to remove them. Change the gas filter.
