The Dakotas have a V-8,while the Viper runs a V-10.No factory V-10's for the Dak.As far as your check engine light goes,could be a multitude of different reasons why its on.SO far every time mine has come on has been due to the O2 sensor going bad.(has 3)Most BIG auto part stores will hook up a meter to it and tell ya what the code is.Hope this helps.

yes, pepboys, autozone, etc will help you with the CEL code...

like dak said, there has never been a stock V10 dakota, but there have been V10s put into them by private owners, with a TON of work.
