Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

3 Answers

Engine cuts off in traffic when car slows.

1999 Dodge Durango- engine just stops. Once on the interstate when I slowed to around 10 mph and once in traffic whne I slowed for a traffic light. Engine will not start again until it cools-around 10 minutes. It does not shake or show any signs the engine is going to shut down. The radio, AC ect all still work and you would not know the engine was not running until you pressed the gas pedal. I think this is eather the fuel pump or something electrical. It has been about 40 days between the two problems.

Sounds like it could be an ignition module breaking down.

This vehicle does not have an ignition module. Everything is done by the PCM. It does sound electrical. Have seen crank and cam position sensors do this. You may need a scan tool to diag this to check the cam and crank signals when it happens. Otherwise you'd need a voltmeter with labscope to scope these. You'd need to find a wiring diagram to find the correct wires to tap into. The easiest place to do this is at the pcm. Or you could just replace them both, it's a pretty good bet. The pcm cuts off ignition and/or fuel if it loses either one of these. Losing fuel pressure is another possibility but you would probably feel it dying before it cut off. Cam and crank signal loss would be like cutting off the ignition switch, very sudden. There are other possibilities but these are the most common.

94 cadillac deville dies when i slow down


I have seen this problem before and the cause could be TCC Staying in Lock-up or an Electrical Issue within the Engine itself or a Fuel Delivery Issue.

If the Transmission TCC is the issue, try driving at slower speeds (below 30 and come to a stop, does it Shut off then? Increase Speed by 10 and try again. Does it react differently once you go above 42-45 MPH?

I have a 1999 TERRANO QD32ETI engine and the problem which the local agents and private mechanics cannot solve is that when it's on the highways the engine performs well; that is it accelerates perfectly. However, when the vehicle comes to a dead stop, and you go for a quick take off the engine cuts out; it restarts quickly; now,when you make a slow acceleration after stopping the engine does not stall, but this can be a dangerous situation when crossing traffic on the highway or moving off from the traffic lights. We checked the computer, fuel pump and the injectors; our opinions differ and somehow
we feel the problem may be the fuel pump. We would appreciate your comments. Our many thanks for your kind assistance. Thanks Tony.

Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.

Vitara 1.6 cuts out


Are you quite sure it is not overheating? Your mention of heavy traffic, ie. stop and go, would tell me that your radiator fans are not working. I had a car with bum electric radiator fans. It worked fine if it was moving a lot. But in slow traffic, it would get warm enough to have a vapor lock or something without setting the engine-hot light.

2004 dodge durango engine shuts off while driving


I had this happen to me before. My battery had went out and I had put another in (didn't buy a new one-- it was holiday). It did this exact thing to me. The scary part is once, it was on the interstate going about 75 mph... didn't die but all gauges went to nothing. It turned out that the battery I was using didn't have enough cold cranking amps and was pulling down the alternator too much so the computer shut it down. The one time it didn't... it was because the RPH's were too high. Try checking the battery and alternator... make sure you have the right battery and have an alternator shop test your alternator if the battery is good.
