Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Dodge Durango and when I start it up and give it gas, it dies. This has happened several times. I replaced the battery about a year ago and I just got gas two weeks ago and two days after filling up this problem happened again. I put dry gas in my tank and it was running fine. I got gas a few days ago and two days later I have this same problem again but this time my check engine light is on. Not sure what is going on. Thank you.

Hello--

Well--if it only happens when you get gas and you fill up when on E then there is something in your tank like water or rust.
If you can make it to an autoparts store like Oreilly's they will check the codes (engine light) for free and help you to find the problem.

The only other things I can think of would be a sensor, injector, pump, or gas cap not on or tight. Pull the codes first though.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: Check Engine Light Comes on Intermittently

The P0141 code points to the O2 sensor heater circuit. It could be that there is a short in the wiring to the O2 sensor or it could be that the O2 sensor heating element itself is bad. The code is for O2 sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2. Bank 1 means its the O2 sensor connected to the exhaust pipe that runs to cylinder #1. Sensor 2 means that it is likely the O2 sensor after the catalytic converter on the same exhaust pipe.

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge reads empty, but tank IS full

the float in your gas tank seems to have water in it....water is heavier than gas, that's why gas floats on top of water....try putting something like HEAT in it to dry up the water in your tank....

Will a bad pick up coil stop a 1999 dodge Durango from cranking


It wouldn't stop the engine from turning over while trying to start. But it can make engine not start or run poorly

Dodge Durango 1999 ran out of gas then it would


The running out of gas and failing to start are unrelated issues. You need to replace the ignition switch... it is easy, just watch one of several youtube videos on it.

My 99 durango will start up but u have to give it gas to stay running same when pulling down in gear


Change the gas filter. If car sat for 2 years without being started, the gas could be stale Put fuel system cleaner in gas tank. The car may need a double dose.

My odometer code no bus and it wont start 1999 dodge durango


Check for a faulty crank sensor. Sounds strange, but we found this out the hard way in the dealerships,many years ago. Following the trouble tree usually lead to pcm replacement, and it still wouldn't run.

1999 Dodge Durango. Speedometer not working.


We had the same problem. The dealership wanted to do a 2,000 major overhaul of the rear axle. I found out there is a speed sensor that is easily replaced (it happened a few years ago but I remember the part being pretty inexpensive). Hope this helps.
