#709 of 853 Bad Fuel Mileage on Durango
Sep 02, 2009 (2:50 pm)
I have a 99 Durango and need some serious help. This thing gets real bad fuel mileage.I mean it drinks an 1/8 of tank just running to store and back in city limits. Check engine light did come on. Had it checked at Auto zone. Came back as P0740(Torque Converter Clutch) and P0783(3-4 Solenoid). Now Im really stuck on what to do next. Would changing the Tranny Fluid help this or is there something I can do to try to fix this? Or are we talking like a Tranny Rebuild.Or should I try to change the Solenoids? Any Help would be super. If anyone else has had this problem please tell...Thanks, Shawn

My 2005 Durango Remote Keyless Entry system just quit working. I changed the battery in the remote key, checked for blown fuse, tried re-programing keys, and disconnected battery to re-boot the modular. Nothing worked. Any suggestions?

Can someone please help me out on this? I would appreciate it. Anyways, I bought a 1998 dodge durango, it had a stalling problem, not all the time. I took it to a friend that has the code and it came up the o2 sensor, so I had that replaced. Reset the sensor and the light came back on, so I knew I had to get the other o2 sensor, well before I could do that I went shopping and started heading back home. The durango started making this funny noise and the check gauges light came on. So I looked at the gauges and the oil said it was low and the car had said it had overheated. After the vehicle had cooled down I checked the oil and the coolant and everything else and they were all full. I got it to start back up and headed down the highway again, but it made the noise again. I had an engine put into it and every since then it rolls over but will not start. It also had other parts put into it. If anyone has any information that will help me out onto why its rolling over but will not start can you please reply back so that I can get my vehicle started again.....Thanks

First off, the code reader would tell you which O2 sensor was setting the code (upstream or downstream) so you only need to replace the defective one. Need to know what type of noise it was making (stumbling, back-firing, etc.) If it sounded like small backfire under your feet and the O2 sensor was still bad, you could have been dumping fuel into the engine which will cause a misfire and could lead to excessive unburned fuel flowing into the exhaust where it will partially burn and sound like a small pop as the engine bucks. How did the exhaust smell when this happened? Did it burn your eyes?
When you say you had an engine put into it, are you saying you had the entire engine replaced??? If so, have the person that did it get it running. Since you threw that variable into the mix, it could be just about anything causing it to not start from a connection left un-done, crimped wire, blown fuse, clogged fuel filter/line, etc. Start by checking fuel and spark and work your way back from there. Remember that the motors, in the Durango, are Benz motors and are about as bullet-proof as you will find in an American SUV. The sensors that control it, on the other hand, are usually where your problems will come from. Stop "shot-gunning" the problem and work methodically to trouble shoot where the problem(s) are.

I had the same problem. I took it to a local dealership(not 5 star). they kept it for 3 days and couldn't fix it. They said they called the regional office and got no help. They wanted me to write a letter to Chrysler requesting assistance. I thought it was a joke. I took it to a 5 star dealership (which closed down a few weeks ago by Chrysler) about 20 miles from my house and they fixed it in about 10 minutes for free. Not sure what it was, but the first group was clueless.
Try another dealership.
