#64 of 71 2000 Dodge Durango 5.9 L 4x4 Running really rough. Help!
Mar 13, 2012 (4:49 pm)
I have a 2000 Dodge Durango 5.9 L Magnum. About two weeks ago it started running really rough during acceleration and cruising speed. I have replaced the Air Filter and checked all the spark plug Wires, I have replaced a fouled plug after getting a code reading from Advanced auto parts. It said #7 was misfiring. it fouled out again the next day. I am at a loss as to what it could be. If anyone has had this issue or knows what it could be please help. I cannot afford to take it to a shop unless absolutely needed. Thank you.

the mechanic found 3 broken bolts on the right side passenger manifolold. it fixed like 75% of the noise but still doing it every morning . what else I can check. it seems like this issue is world wide.

I found that the durango's do not like any sparkplug but Champions. i had the same issue. brand new sparkplugs then 3 days later, 2 blown. Also, make sure that you put that gunct on the sparkplugs that help not shorting out. it seems that they have an issue with that too.

Hi there, it sounds like you blew the motor. most of those v8 durangos are 5qts of oil. if you were that low the heat builds very quickly even on a cold day. this heat can cause the pistons to swell and get pinched at the top of the cylinder. I had this happen to a suburban when Firestone left a drain plug loose.
Do not start throwing money at it ( replacing the o2 sensors, starter, battery, distributor/ coils ect ect..) If it is what it sounds like you either pre seized the engine, bent a piston rod or intake/exhaust valve.
there is a small chance it will start up again after sitting a few days. do not drive it like this as it will cause unrepairable damage to the engine.
At this point I would take it to a good ASE mechanic shop and ask them to see if they can turn the motor by hand and if it needs a new engine or if it is possible to rebuild the stock one.
