    try grounding the wire to the switch see if the oil gauge pegs full .if so the oil galley to the sending unit could be clogged .

Does my 2000 Dodge Durango have an oil leak?

Good Evening, its a good question that only you can give the answer for. And if you have oil underneath your durango on the ground and there is oil on your oil pan then I would agree you do. However they are also known to leak between the transfer case and the transmission so you might look there as well. Hope this helps since you have a little more information on the condition of your durango than i do. :-)

Shifts quickly enough but is a bit harsh just

What engine does your Durango have? The trans in your Durango should have a drain and refill service every 30k miles. I would have it serviced, and see how things go from there.

BTW, if you have the 5.9/360 motor, you have the 46RE trans which requires band adjustments every so often. If you have the 4.7 motor, you have the 45RFE trans which does not have bands and therefore requires no adjustments.

Blue smoke

sorry to say blue smoke is oil and with what you've described sounds like the oil rings on the pistons have given up the ghost, time for a new engine or a rebuild sorry for the bad news. valve stem seals are the only other thing that will cause exhaust smoke but only when you first start the car never while running. hope i have been of some assistance.

2000 durango

get a replacement handle to install once you get it open, push hard against the bottom edge of the hatch right below the handle and then use the handle to open it, but once you get it open it is a pain in the **** to replace the handle
