#327 of 428 2004 Dodge Durango Engine issues
Dec 31, 2012 (10:37 am)
So I have have my 04' Durango not even a year and have had several issues with it. First sign was it started idealing high, stalled and the check engine light came on. Had it checked and nothing came up, light shut off and problem seemed to go away I just recently had to replace the starter and then yesterday driving it started to run hard and as I went to take out from a light I heard a pop, grinding and then smoke, well I now have a softball size hole in my engine. Really disgusted so many people seemed to have the same issue and yet no recall.

I havent done anything to it yet. i am in the military and will be gone for a while. when i get back im gonna break it down and try to see whats going on. i wrote a complaint on that website, but i dont think its gonna go anywhere. im just gonna have to buy the parts to fix it myself.

Well if it is anything like mine ( which I hope it is not ) you will have to buy a whole new engine. Good luck and thank you for your service to this country.

My motor just blew. My mechanic said he had never seen anything like it before. It was the #8 rod. If this happened to you, you need to file a complaint at (888)327-4236 safercar.com You will need your vin#.
I keep reading the same complaint so I'm posting to hopefully get some people calling in to the government. So far they have lodge 32 complaints on this matter. I asked what is the magic number & there is none. When they notice a pattern they will investigate.
If there are enough complaints the gov will issue a recall & will make them reimburse us.

I'm in the same boat as you all. 77,000 miles (easy local miles) and I found out today that the engine is shot. Pistons, crank shaft and all. Dodge is worthless. Called them myself and they have no known issues with Durango's and in fact, and in their opinion, they're the best running trucks in the industry. Where's do I file a complaint with the government?
