Question about 2004 Dodge Durango

Open Question

When I accelerate, it pulls back a little bit, but then it runs fine.

When it reaches 40 miles or so, it's when the problem happens. There are no warning lights and when its running over 50 or 60 miles; it runs fine

Disconnect your alternator. I had a similar problem with a 2001 Ram 2500. I found that the alternator was surging and causing the automatic trans sensors to disengage the trans creating a slipping feeling. This may be the cause for your problem.

You need to look at your fuel pump it does not pump to specification when it gets hot. You might just have to replace it.

Good luck

It sounds as though you are running with a retarted spark timing. Could be time for a new belt.

SOURCE: 1999 Grand Caravan 87000 miles.The dash board goes dead.

Experienced the same thing with my 99 Voyager, ABS light would then come on too. I expect this will do it for you. If you check my profile you'll se I have helped several others with this same isse

There has been issues with the solder joints on the PIN connection to the gauge cluster. The issue being that over time thru vibration and such one of these solder joints will fail (happened on or 1999) you can repair this though. You will have to remove all of the trim from around the driver's side dash board, this will include the trim towards the center of the dash. Once these pieces are remove you'll need to remove the gauge panel (I believe (4) allen head screws) carefully bring the panel and release the wire clip from it. Looking at the back of the panel, where the plug was, carefully with plenty of light look for one of the pins (or more) to have a failed solder joint. It will be very faint however the failed joint will be a fine dark line around the pin. To correct use a small soldering iron and reheat this solder until it wants to flow, let it cool and reassemble. Take your time and this is an easy fix!
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

Has the exhaust ( catalytic converter) been check for proper flow? I would try a test pipe to by-pass converter and see if that helps. You used to be able to buy them, but a good exhaust shop can make one pretty quick, and then try it.

My 1996 GMC Suburban has 170600 miles on it. In the last week, it drives fine until you travel about 1/4 mile & reach 30 mph. Then, you loose acceleration. When you push the gas, the engine just revs....


Try dropping the tranny fluid and changing the tranny filter and filling with fresh fluid. Sounds like the tranny is sleeping between shifts.

1997 F-350 Ford Powerstroke4x4 Crew Cab Diesel 83k miles. Truck runs fine while cold. When it starts reaching normal operating temp it starts missing and loosing power when accelerating. Truck idles fine....


Have you changed your oil? Rotella 15W-40. These engines really don't like old oil. It becomes too thick for the injection pump to work correctly. Another possibility is a bad cam sensor on the front of the motor. Most engines call this the crank sensor but on this engine you have to look it up as a cam sensor.

Noise when i mash the gas in drive at a speed about 40-50 miles


If carb is adjusted properly, try backing your timing off slightly until noise disappears on acceleration , as it sounds like timing "ping"
Other thing that may be causing it is poor octane fuel. You shouldn't have to run premium, so I would check timing & if you don't have a light, just turn distributor a little at a time and test drive it until it's gone.

Engine backfires when accelerating, idles rough but runs fine over 50+ miles per hour.


Idle is rough because not a right Air/ Gas mixture.
The ideal air /gas ratio is 14.6:1. If less than that it has rich mixture. If it more then that it has a lean mixture.
Back fire happens when accelerated because of of rich mixture pumped out at exhaust cycle is burning.
At speed above 40 miles/hour, temperature and fast compression cycle make the problem is less obvious.
Cheap first shot is to replace the air filter to correct this ratio. If it doesn't help, need Fuel distributor service. ( However people like to make easy money from you first, they will convince you for a turn up) Good Luck. I'll check back to see how the progress going.
