#753 of 853 '99 Dodge Durango Brake issues
Jun 17, 2010 (10:21 am)
I have a 1999 Dodge Durange 5.2L SLT. My rear brakes started to lock up. The first thing we found was that the e-brake had come apart and jammed the wheel. That was fixed and didnt resolve the issue. Next we changed the master cylinder. That didn't resolve the issue. Next we have changed the RWAL valve (proportion valve). That has also not resolved the issue. The issue is with both rear wheels. Any suggestions???

We are having the same problem but the emission light goes on and off. When the emission light goes off, the vehicle drives normal. I have no clue what it could be! Does anyone have any answers?
#755 of 853 Rear/Front differential and transfer case leaks
Jun 28, 2010 (8:44 pm)
I just had my car serviced and the mechanic told me that my rear and front differentials and my transfer case has leaks. I just had the rear and front differentials serviced about 6 months ago. It sounds serious and wondered how much it would cost to have this fixed. I have a 2000 4.7 Dodge Durango 4wd and it has about 232,000 miles on it.

Well there are "leaks" and then there is a kind of "weeping". If you lift the car and see fluid actually dripping out, or the underside washed with oil streaming back from the XFR case or DIFF, then yeah, you'll be losing considerable fluid over time and you need to attend to it. But if there is only a small damp spot and a minor weep---given the miles on your truck---I think I'd just keep an eye on it and not do anything.

It must just be weeping because there are no spots on the ground. I assume that if was actually leaking then there would be drips on the ground. I will keep an eye on it. Thank you

Taking things apart to fix a small "weep" could even make things worse.

Are they leaking out of the front seals, the cover, or those rubber plugs they use instead of threaded plugs in the fill/check hole? That would make a difference. A small seal leak isn't a big deal unless you let it go without refilling the differential for a long time. If the cover is leaking then it should be fixed since gravity will cause fluid to come out all the time. If it's the plug, you can just change it yourself (those plugs get old, hard and shrink over time).

I'm not sure. I can't see the front differential unless I get under the car, but the back one seems to be moist around half of it. No drips on the ground though from any of the differentials or the transfer case. I'm not sure where the transfer case is. I am really good about having my car serviced (oil changes) at 3000 miles and they always add to the differentials and transfer case if needed. I just had the differentials serviced about 7000 miles ago. I am due for a transfer case service though.
If it's the covers that are leaking is that very expensive?

Hi, I'm a female so seeing the engine come on is going to always freak me out. I just got an oil change around early july, the engine light was on then and had it diagnosed and said something with feul injection;so got a fuel injection serv. done 2 weeks ago; then last week the radiator overheated because it was empty( I thougth jiffy lube looked at this); so I bought a new hose and got it flushed; the engine light went off for a couple of days and now it is back on. I had it diagnosed again by a friend and said the codes were reading fuel injection cap off? and emissions leak. About how much will this cost me? It is a 2000 Durango, 153,000 miles.

So replacing the hose fixed the problem with the radiator leak?
Do you know what the codes retrieved were? P0442 is one I was getting on my 2000. It indicates a small leak in the evap control system. One of the hoses had small leak that I repaired.
If you had codes set for an injector problem then I doubt if a "fuel injection service" would have any lasting effect. Most times the codes are only an indicator of where to start looking, not the actual fault.
