I have a 1997 Dodge Dakota, 2WD, Club Cab, V6 with around 147K miles. In September of 2007, the transmission went. Prior to that it was running well. Since that time it has sat in my driveway. Well, I am now thinking of getting the transmission repaired so that my son has a vehicle to drive. My question is, what things should I plan on doing as general maintenance to get this truck ready for the road. I had already pulled the battery out, so it should be fine. I figure that I will;
1. Do an oil change
2. Drain and replace the brake fluid
3. Coolant flush
4. Spark plugs?
5. What about brakes?
6. Anything else?
have the same problem?
