Thanks for the VIN info but it just states that the engine is a 2.5L (153ci) TBI I4.

There is so much conflicting information on the web.  lol  I looked up internal engine parts for the 1995 Dakota 2.5 on Autozone and it specified vehicle fitment for Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth.  For 1996 it specifies Dodge and Jeep.

Damn.  Every bit of literature I have ever seen confirms that '96 was the first year of the Jeep 4-cylinder in the Dakotas.  It makes sense.   95 was the last year they offered a passenger car with the 2.5 in it.  95 was also the last year of OBD-I in the trucks.  I don't see them developing OBDII electronics for the Chrysler 2.5 for the last model year of one vehicle.  The same reason they went to the 3.7 in the 04 Dakota instead of coming up with an NGC pcm for the 3.9.

Here is a different article from Allpar: http://www.allpar.com/mopar/25.html

(The 2.5 liter Chrysler engine is easily confused with the 2.5 liter AMC engine used in Dodge trucks through the 1990s; the latter can be easily differentiated in most years by its sequential-point fuel injection and greater power. The AMC engine was not turbocharged.)


It shows the Chrysler 2.5 with 8.9 compression which is what the 1995 Dakota service manual shows.  My engine is TBI and the AMC was multi-point injection for the Dakota?

Good point on injection.  I do believe the AMC motor from the early 90's on was sequential.

The 2.5 AMC is essentially a 4.0 minus 2 cylinders and is cam in block.  The 2.5 Mopar is OHC.  Got pics?

My engine is definitely an overhead cam set up.  The more information I read specifies the Chrysler 2.5 in the 1995 Dakota.  

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_Dakota

In 1996, the first generation's final year, the base K-based 2.5 L SOHC I4 engine option was out of production and had been considered vastly underpowered compared to the competition, so Dodge replaced it with another 2.5 L I4 engine; this being of American Motors heritage with an OHV valvetrain and rated at 120 hp (89 kW). This was the only major change for 1996, and the AMC 2.5 L would also be carried over as the base engine in the new, larger 1997 model.

After owning this vehicle for a little while I pretty much got hosed buying it.  It wasn't what the owner said it was. LOL!  The biggest problem is that the engine is shot and needs rebuilding.  I haven't driven it in months since the throw out bearing started squealing big time and the clutch pedal felt funky.  I've been working on other things but need to get going on this, hopefully before winter.  I decided that I wasn't going to soup it up but today I scored a brand new, old stock "G" head for a 2.2 that supposedly flows 10% more than the stock head.  I will port it and maybe install a small cam and see how it does.  lol

You could also add a small turbo from a junk yard 3.8L Buick T-type or 80/81 301cid Trans Am.

That will give it a little kick in the pants. LOL
