    Hello thank you for your post. I did take it in and asked if that could have been an issue but they said that the 99 durango does not have a fuel filter it just has a screen. They thought it was my rear window wiper motor so they unhooked it and it is worse then ever before i took it to them on Friday and i have no vehicle now because it seems that they made it undriveable, for fear of going somewhere and not getting it started again. I even tried fuel injector cleaner which seems to have helped for a little bit but now it is back to "maybe it will start, maybe it won't." Have any other suggestions?

I think u have a defective fuel pump, the pressure check valve in the fuel pump has failed which is part of the pump located in the fuel tank, you must remove the gas tank to replace the pump. If u want to test this check valve here is the procedure, buy a fuel press test gauge, this goes on a test port located on the fuel injectors fuel supply rail, this is the tube that is over the injectors, on that rail u will find the test port, it looks like a metal tire valve with a plastic cap on it, hook up the test gauge (avail at most parts stores for around $20) there, run the engine and let the fuel pressure stabilize, then note the PSI reading on the gauge, turn off the engine and make sure the gauge doesn't leak, the fuel pressure should remain at the same reading with no more than a 3-5 pound drop overnight.

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

Van sputters when you put it in gear after its been started multiple times


Bad fuel pump, stopped up fuel filter, mabey? First check for vacume leaks.... may try unplugging the throttle position sensor. Plug it right back in... just check the connection.

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

Engine overheated, now car won't start without giving it gas


Some cars cut off as a fail safe to overheating especially on newer cars. The computer controls the fans and if they are not working the computer is probably telling the car to shut off. Have you replaced the motors already, if not, this is what's happening. Once you replace the motors it should run fine. I wouldn't suggest driving it too much with this problem as it may affect the computer by giving it false info.
