2004 durango shakes at 45


Hi,
What was serviced a few weeks back? Sounds like it needs a tune-up @ least to start - spark plugs, plug wires.

At 103K miles I'd also replace the fuel filter, air filter, PCV valve. And if you look in the Owner's Manual it should have a maintenance schedule for other items that may need attention.

Cruise control complete failure


Most of these cars have a switch that is activated by your touching the brake pedal to turn off the cruise when you brake. Usually that is a small plastic switch, hidden up under the dashboard, that will "open" when you press the brake. ( A little plunger will come out of the switch). These switches often break or fall out of their holder, being really cheaply made. Be blessed.

Smell of gas and whistling sound


Its all connected.
The computer uses a solenoid to vent the fumes from the tank when the engine is running.
The vapor canister holds the fumes until the vent valve is opened.
The computer tried to vent the tank and something went wrong.
It could be from the excessive heat or something with the venting system.
A mechanic would test the venting system.

My 2001 alero shakes at stop lights dies from time to time and when the light turns green it looses powers sort of like a drag



  • Sounds like you have some really fouled plugs. I would start with a tune up or plugs and wire at least. When your plugs, or even one plug, get fouled it creates a misfire and when at a stop light etc the cars will shake a bit and almost feel like it wants to **** a bit. Then when taking off it putters and lacks proper accelerations abilities.

  • Also make sure to use good gas as bad gas will cause some sluggishness too.

  • Hope this helps.
