Julie's Mom - I have a '99 Durango that had the same problem - stalling after running about 15 minutes (would crank fine, but no fire, like you're out of gas), then I could restart it after it sat about 5-10 minutes. I initially replaced the Crank Position Sensor (as I read in other posts) and it still stalled. I bought a rebuilt PCM (main engine computer) off of Ebay for $200 from a company that specializes in rebuilt computers. Install took 10 minutes, and it's ran just fine ever since. Don't go to the dealer, they want about $600 for a rebuilt one, plus programming and install! Hope this helps. Regards, Scott

Check your TPS Sensor, IAC Valve. My did the same thing. I also changed my spark plugs, wires and Cap/Rotar. She runs just fine now, even in hot weather. Make sure you put the right spark plugs in also. I used Bosch Plat. Disconnect the battery to clear the computer and then reconnect. Should do the trick.

I have a 99 Durango. Mine started stalling. Changed the spark plugs, wires and Cap/Rotar. I also changed out the IAC Valve and the TPS sensor. Those two parts are only 120.00. Mine now runs just great.

I also have a 2000 durango with the fluid problem in the harness going to the o2. You claim to run new wires from the o2 up to under the air cleaner. Can you be more specific? Are you talking about the pcm module or exactly under the air cleaner? I changed the steering pressure switch and flushed harness with contact cleaner. Still the same problem.

My 2000 4.7L D has just developed the same symptoms. P0551 error code. Power steering switch failed and leaked. Next developed P0171 O-Sensor failure, smells, and lousy mileage. Ground leak theory makes sense. Now for my question: Part stores and web sites says this engine has 3 or 4 O-Sensors. Which one would be the faulty sensor and where is it located? I've found one forward and behind converter. Re-wiring is no problem since I was once an electrical engineer.
Thanks for any help.............

Ok. I see 4 wires coming off the O2 sensor going to a connector the is stuffed up in an un-accessable location. Cannot get my hands in there to dis-connect. 4 wires: Black-Black-Blue-White. If I assume the two blacks are ground, maybe I could cut them and run new grounds to another clean point. Any comments out there?

I have a 2003 Durango that is doing the same thing. Please let me know what you have been able to find out.
#213 of 853 2000 Durango, Erratic Idle
Jul 11, 2006 (3:46 pm)
2000 Durango 4.7 engine idle will vary from 600 RPM to around 1700 RPM. No engine lights, no codes in CPU. Dealer replaced idle motor, still have same problems. Vehicle has 86,000 miles and has had this problem for some time now. Idle will be erratic and "wander" if vehicle is in drive or park or neutral. Anyone had a similar problem??
