Hey all first post, actually never thought of buying a dodge lol . Just bought a 2006 dakota STL 4X4 quad cab and i m wondering what is the best way for engine breakdown, at the moment it's at 150km.

Hi Hish. Congratulations on the purchase. I'd say the best way for engine breakdown would be to run it without any engine oil for the next 3,000 miles (4827 km). Good luck! :D

simmer bud. welcome first and foremost. second...based on how you phrased it the first time...you got an answer... i had to read it a few times to get where you were going. i THINK you are asking...what are common ways for these engines to break down?? if thats the case...then you should mention which engine you have...if not...then please rephrase..

He didn't mean "break-in" did he? Judging by his response I'm not sure breakdown is actually what he meant, because there's no better way for that to happen then to run the thing with no oil! :)

What engine do you have? the V6 or the V8 (if the 8, which one)? I have heard not to run it more than 65 mph for the first 1000. I am not sure that is accurate, but I have never had problems doing it that way.

They say constant HI speed is a no no. They do recommend short burst of acceleration with in the first 1000 miles. I drove mine on the back roads to work for the first 800 miles to keep the speed all over the place. Lot of good it did me though. I just happen to have a bad build soon gone.
Good luck with new ride and welcome to a diverse and interesting group.

Well, without your answer, I'm thinking we all would have had a couple laughs because of my keen wit and then someone would have chimed in to help you, just like I was going to before you told us all to **** ourselves :hair:

All is forgotten. Welcome to the forum. :cheers:
