I had a similar prolem. it was very difficult to solve. I wwould happen in the freway while you were driving at 65 mph and suddenly the engine was off and you did not have any hints except that you had no power steering, brakes , power.... and it would take two or three times to start it after you manage not to be killed in the freeway. The dealer took the car several times and they could not find any problems with it. but the problems continue happening. Finaly the dealer put a computer "Copilot" we had to use it for about three weeks until it did it again, then you have a few seconds to push a buttom so the copilot can copy the info from the car computer. the info was analyzed by the dealer aand they determine that the main computer was bad, after they changed it the problem never happened again, and even thou the car was five + years old I did not have to pay anything. I think that they probably paid for it to avoid the possibility of a recall mandated by the government.

Picked up the truck on Friday, seemed to run ok. By Sunday, engine light back on! I have to bring it back for the 5th time! They said they were switching a fuel injector, and never did anything but reset the computer! I've emailed chryseller again. I'm at my wits end. When this lease is up, I'm switching to GMC!!!

#113 of 853 Hard starting problem
Apr 04, 2006 (8:05 pm)
I have a 2000 Durango that has been starting hard for several months. It never turns over on the first try - always the second try. It always turns over, just take 2 tries to start, unless it has been running for a while, and I turn the engine off and restart. Then it seems to start better on the first turnover. I have a new battery, and it always tries to start, so I don't think it is the starter. Any ideas?

Any luck on getting this fixed? I have a 2002 that is doing the same thing as yours was/is.

well I went to the dealer about the problem with my 1999 Durango. What do you know they fixed it? It's pulling off just fine and the check engine light is gone off.

Make sure they check your wires first. because in my 1999 Durango had the same problem We replaced the sensors and the light was still on . They said I needed that same thing that you need but it came to be bad wiring in the truck. so make sure they check yous wires first and they said something about the heating wire to the sensors.My truck is fine now. Good Luck

Yes This sounds like speed sensors they get stretched easily and have to be replaced soon or you'll have major problems
