Question about 2006 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Engine shut off while towing up a hill.

My 2006 Dodge Durango w/ 4.7 L V8 it's having some issues. 1) On the way to our vacation the check engine light came on and now the cruise control is disabled. When we arrived at our destination the check engine light turned off. But the cruise control remained disabled. I just had the Durango at the local Dodge dealer to repair broken exhaust manifold bolts. They told me I also had a small leak in the Evap. System. I thought they had fixed that. At idle, the engine cycles from 500 to 1,000 RPM. Not sure what causes that. 2) On our way home from our vacation while towing our small boat the engine just shut off while driving up an incline. I managed to pull over and restart the vehicle. This happened two more times, all while climbing a hill. I am really concerned about this. I never had the vehicle just shut off. Someone told me it could be a CAM or Crank Sensor. I tried turning the truck on and off three times to get a code on the dash, but I never got one to display. Thanks, Jay

You'll need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then go from there. If the check engine light was on for more than a minute there should be trouble codes stored.
The EVAP leak would not cause the engine to stall.

SOURCE: engine shut down while driving

This will need a good repair shop , not necessarily a dealer. Find one recommended by friends that can do computer/electrical work. The "no bus" means the cars computer network is losing comminication between itself. This is not a code , but you might have code(s) stored in the computer system.A repair shop can scan for any stored codes to start the diagnosis.The problem could be in the PCM (engine computer) or even the Theft deterent system. Sounds more like theft deterent because of the no crank situation. If you have the spare ignition key try it & see if anything changes.

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Durango 4.7L V8 Check Engine Codes

1st try and search for a vaccum leak, due to the fact that these vehicles have had some bad problems with the length of wires and hoses, if there is a vaccum leak in the vehicle somewhere that will trigger other malfunctions in your vehicle. Using a can of starting fluid or Brake cleaner spray lightly spray around our engine til you hear the motor rev-up and the spot you have sprayed will determine where your vaccum leak will be. And then check under your distributor cap for any moisture be sure to take a rag and wipe and residue off. Also check the firing order on your distributor.

SOURCE: Wife's durango is idling rough and running rough

With both codes pointing at TP sensor, I'd certainly take the time to replace it, as well as make sure connections to it are clean, and good. Chances are, you won't be able to take part back anyway. As far as exhaust goes, if it's leaking in the right places in may cause improper readings at sensors downstream, but if not obvious leak, I wouldn't be concentrating in that area right now.
