#1459 of 1712 Durango Engine Light
May 31, 2005 (5:08 am)
I have a 2003 Dodge Durango, recently out of warranty. The engine light appeared and then went off about 2 days later. Ran the diagnostics once at the dealership ($50!) and they found nothing wrong. The service man said it may have been the gas cap. Since then I have filled up with gas again and the light is on again. Checked the gas cap and its on as tight as it will go! Any other ideas? How would you ever know if you have a legitimate engine problem if the light appears for something like this?

Maybe the gas cap itself is bad.
Instead of paying the dealer $50, find an auto parts store that will read the codes for free (AutoZone and Schucks do it around here).

We have AutoZone. I'll go there. Think its time to find independent servicing, anyway. Thanks!

Have looked at Honda Pilot but a little small and there are some issues there. Considering also a Dodge Durango or a Jeep Cherokee. Want V-6 with 2WD but 4WD ok.
Need room for family of four with luggage and two beagles. Want to tow around 5000 pounds. Would like 19 city / 23 hwy.
Last Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth was an 84 Plymouth Voyager. POC! Engine almost self destructed at 7000 miles. Many problems but am finally warming back up to Chrysler; son has a 04 Dodge Neon SXT and it seems ok.

I have a 1999 Dodge SLT, 5.2 and eveything Spring I have to take it to the dealer and he replaces a sensor switch for the AC.
It amazes and frustrates me that this is not a recall and has not been fixed. I own it, it has 74k miles and now it has begun to burn oil. I was hoping to find a leak, but no luck. I have begun to look for a replacement, but do to the fact that Dodge does not focus on the details, like fixing known issues, I will be looking elsewhere. Other items like ball joints I had replaced under the warranty when I heard their was an issue.

In response to #1356, I have exact same problem. I was at the dealer and they aren't sure what it is. Did you solve your problem yet? Please post back so that I can let the dealer know exactly what the problem is. Thanks. The hissing noise only comes on over 1000 RPM and is alot louder after I take my foot off the gas peddle.

What kind of deal did you get? Any rebates or other incentives?

Hi, new to board. I have a 2004 Limited Durango which has been great until 2 days ago. I have 6500 miles on it and I was driving down the highway at about 70mph with both the front and back AC on high when suddenly my car died (no radio, turning signals or engine power). Luckily I was able to get to the shoulder with no problem and the car started right up again. We took it to the dealership and they ran a computer check and did not find any record of the incident. They updated the cars computer system at that time. Has any one else had this problem or any recommendations on what to look for? This makes me extremely nervous as we are planning a road trip later this month. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I have been having the same problem. I went about 50 miles over on my oil change, and figured that was the problem, but again, the light came on. Due to time constrictions, and my own procrastination I haven't taken it in to the dealer, but the light has came on and off, several times within the last 8 months, and the truck is only 12 months old. Have you heard anything from anyone else on this??
