Thanks so much Joe. I didn't find a rubber tube. What is it connected to? I downloaded a service manual for my Dakota and didn't find a diagram of the condensate drain.
I looked all over and followed every line near the passenger side firewall from the engine top side and jacked the truck up and looked underneath too. I removed a thin metal shield (pie shaped about 8"x8" above the manifold pipe) and found a horizontal hole in the firewall covered by the shield that I could stick a finger and 4" screwdriver into. It did not appear to be blocked. Perhaps the tube is gone?
Any suggestions on where or to what this tube is attached? I remember a mechanic said it was a real bitch to get at the drain. He had the truck on a lift and was poking around from below near the manifold pipe. I left the shield off.
Again thanks for your help. Sorry i'm no mechanic. Peter
