Jun 15, 2010 (7:13 am)
I have a 1998 Dodge Durango , recently I been having trouble starting it in the morning. I therefore went out and replaced the battery , sparkplugs etc. It then started fine for a day or two , but as of yesterday I have been having the same problem. The computer reads error code P1682 , I know what the code means , but cannot find any solutions for it online. What should I do????????????

It is the PCM for sure. I have been through the whole thing. Don't even think it's the crankshaft position sensor symptoms. I got a PCM at a fraction of the price from ebay. It's so easy to install a cave man could do it.

Aamco is rebuilding my transmission right now for the same problem. I watched em take it apart and show me what the problem was. Funny thing is the Durango I was behind in line for service was in for the same thing. I was glad to see that this guy was getting good at it. Anyway, I'm out #%& $1900.00 Ogden, utah

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the catalytic converter was failing and it was partially blocking exhaust gases.

PCM=Powertrain Control Module. For idle problems, the first place I would look is the Idle Air Control Valve, especially after this many years.

#20 of 30 I'm not a big fan of EXHAUST FUMES. HELP!!!

I have a 98 Durango Magnum V8. Recently, my exhaust fumes started to smell really bad. Especially in the mornings. So bad that one morning my neighbor placed an ENORMOUS/HUGE/GIGANTIC fan blowing right back into my driveway. (It looks like one of those wind test tunnel fans). He says it comes into his kitchen window and ruins his coffee. Occasionally I get a neighbor pinching their nose as I drive by.
(Come On......are we all 8 years old again)
Anyway the exhaust white/grey in color. My mileage is getting worse and it has lost some power.
Any help would be greatly appreciated by me and my entire neighborhood.
