How does the fluid look and smell?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

the fluid doesn't smell burnt but it is kind of brown and feels sticky so I believe they may have put something in it to try to fix it.

It might be, but the color indicates there might be a lot of friction material in the fluid. You might consider pulling the pan and checking the filter. The 2000 is a single year trans and you will need one from another 2000.

can it be a Dakota or pickup?

Yes a Dakota or a Durango will work if it is a 2000 with a 5.9.
