Right, ive just bought a 93 dakota with the 3.9 v6 magnum. 380000km

1) what would be the best oil to put in this, both normally and considering its high km's

2) Theres a hole in the exhaust manifold, about 15mm square, do you think this is patchable or am i gonna need a new manifold.

3) The indicators stay on constantly (ie dont flash) when engaged, the hazards however do flash, which suggests to me that the flasher unit is fine, but not the indicator stalk, does anyone else think this is likely or had a similar problem?

4) The cigarette lighter doesnt work (which i need for my gps), any idea where to start with this?

5) roughly what sort of mpg (or miles/km do you get from a tank) do you normally acheive?

Thanks for your help

Ed

10-30 is fine.
It is best to get an another manifold. Cast Iron doesn't weld up very well.
There are 2 flashers, 1 for the Turns, 1 for the Hazards. So replace the Turns.
For the cigarette lighter check the fuse.
For MPG 15-18.

I second this. Pretty much basic answers. I would definately just replace the manifold, or find some shorty headers

Headers sound good but sometimes they blow gaskets alot. Just what I've seen anyway.
