SOURCE: 2000 dodge durango overdive solenoid is faiuling,

That solenoid is inside the trans. The fact you were towing something heavy had nothing to do with the failure. You need to take it to a shop that can check the cvi's(clutch volume index) & some other critical components.

SOURCE: how do I replace the power steering pressure

The power steering pressure switch is threaded onto the high pressure hose that runs from the pump to the steering rack and pinion gear.
There are two hoses connected to the pump. Follow the high pressure line until you come to the switch, unthread it and install the new one. Fairly easy to do on this one. A little thread seal might be a good idea.
There may be some spillage so have a drain pan ready under the truck and have some new fluid ready to top it up afterward.
Just in case you are curious why the switch is needed I will give you the reason.
Your steering pump is driven by the engine so it does take a little horsepower. When turning it uses a little more power. So the switch sends a signal to the computer to bump the engine power up a little to compensate for the turning load. Keeps the engine speed from going erratic and/or stalling.

SOURCE: how do I know if

If is no leak, then maybe you need to bleed the power steering pump. jack the vehicle from the front , and leave the tires free from floor.Take off the steering pump cap, pull the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold for few seconds, let the system to bleed air , then pull all the way to the other side and do the same. somone should be looking the pump to see if air bubles are coming out, repeat as nessesary, If after this proceidure power steering still hard and noisy, replace the pump.

Note: Safety first. Use stand jacks and other security tools to prevent accidents.

05 Durango 545fre engine runs strong but limit is 3800 rpm and trans will not go into overdrive


Need to check and see if the PCM is reading the PRNDL/ Range selector switch on the transmission. Could be a fuse, wire, or switch that is bad. At 3800 RPM's , sounds like the PCM is cutting out the engine. This happens in park or neutral. Yes the transmission will still shift from high pressure.. Usually hard shifts. Takes a scanner.

Having problem with power steering 2000 Dodge Durango. Could it be the power steering pressure switch?


The pressure switch is only there to tell the PCM (computer) when the pump is developing high pressure. If the engine RPM is near idle (as when parking), the PCM will increase idle speed through the inlet air control (IAC) valve to prevent stalling. The pressure switch has nothing to do with the function of the power steering itself.

The od light comes on the the transmission temp warning comes on in my 2000 dodge durango


Check transmission fluid level. Is there a manual Overdrive engagement button? If so you probably have a worn out wire from the switch to overdrive solenoid. I had a similar problem different car. Solution was the "spiral plastic" wire cover to cover the opening on the control wire and easy to get on the wire without having to cut and rejoin wires. Was supposed to be temporary but has lasted about 5 years. This may also be the issue with the Temp warning light. The wires may be parallel to each other. Hope this helps, good luck.

My 2000 Dodge Durango has no overdrive what do I do


Hi EVE , I would suggest you take it to a reputable ASE Certified repair shop ! Do you know what transmission you have there are three different ones for your vehicle along with three different engine possibility's ! It could be the switch or a solenoid in side the transmission or a wiring problem or even a control module problem !

OVERDRIVE OFF SWITCH

DESCRIPTION The overdrive OFF (control) switch is located in the shift lever arm.
OPERATION The switch is a momentary contact device that signals the PCM to toggle current status of the overdrive function. At key-on, overdrive operation is allowed. Pressing the switch once causes the overdrive OFF mode to be entered and the overdrive OFF switch lamp to be illuminated. Pressing the switch a second time causes normal overdrive operation to be restored and the overdrive lamp to be turned off. The overdrive OFF mode defaults to ON after the ignition switch is cycled OFF and ON. The normal position for the control switch is the ON position. The switch must be in this position to energize the solenoid and allow a 3-4 upshift. The control switch indicator light illuminates only when the overdrive switch is turned to the OFF position, or when illuminated by the transmission control module.

OVERDRIVE ELECTRICAL CONTROLS

The overdrive off switch, valve body solenoid, case connectors and related wiring can all be tested with a 12 volt test lamp or a volt/ohmmeter. Check continuity of each component when diagnosis indicates this is necessary. Refer to Group 8W, Wiring Diagrams, for component locations and circuit information.
Switch and solenoid continuity should be checked whenever the transmission fails to shift into fourth gear range.

Hi:
The P0551 code is a Power Steering Switch Failure.

It is not a safety problem, most likely the pressure switch is bad.

Transmission temp gauge and O/D light come on 2000 Durango.


Sounds like an overheated transmisson. The overdrive and temp lights are on because the overdrive is disabled due to a problem. There is a thermistor in the valve body that illuminates that light when the trans fluid temp gets too high. Check the fluid level and condition, If it's dark red and not pink in color it's burnt, which generally means that the clutches are smoked too. Probably time for a remanufactured transmisson.
