Take cover off top of steering column between dash and steering wheel. Check for broken metal fragments most likely broken off linkage and jammed preventing full range of motion. Good luck.

Try unhooking the shift linkage from the lever right at the trans. Manually shift all the way rearward, if goes in park, problem is either linkage adjustment or in the steering column itself. There is an adjustment on the shifter linkage. If won't go in park when move lever all the way back, problem may be in the trans.

My 99 Durango was not starting all the time I replaced the ignition switch now the check lights don't come on when you turn ignition won't start I hear the starter pinion engaging what could be wrong

You did something wrong , maybe . Hooked it up wrong . Without looking at it and checking a wiring diagram and doing some electrical testing anyone on here would only be guessing . Your best bet would be have a qualified repair shop look at it . And a intermittent no start would probably becaused by a park neutral safety switch problem . If you have a automatic transmission .

How do check transmission fluid level in a 99 durango correctly ?

Either Park or Neutral is fine, but first you need to warm up the truck fully and then shift into every shifter position, pause for several seconds in each position, then LAST shift into either Park or Neutral to check the fluid level. The engine must remain running.

My 99 durango makes a grinding sound when put in gear and is leaking fluid - what could this be??

your transmission doesn't have the proper amount of fluid so the gears are probably grinding against bare metal

99 durango transmission slips on left turns.

I would say check the fluid level, perhaps the the trans fluid is slinging all the way to one side and is starving the transmission for adequate fluid.

When you step on the gas the 99 durango doesnt move

i would check the fluid in the transmission and the drive axles and to also make sure you do not have the parking brakes on and you do not have a calipers hanging up on one of the wheels

Removing '99 Durango starter

Make sure you have all of the bolts off. Sometimes they hide one really well. Then just tap lightly on the starter case to free it up.
