Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2000 dodge durango 5.2L v8 that has had a very random but progressive problem. It sputters at higher speeds after driving for about 5 mins and just last night I noticed a sort of backfire/pop sound from the exhaust. The truck runs great on the freeway for a couple days then problem returns out of nowhere. I've read up on a lot of these forums and have been horrified by the possible reasons why this us happening but I have also read a lot about the coil, but which one? Ignition coil? Idk I'm stumped and on a budget

First , check the cat converter blocking the exhaust as it moves around inside the case
next have the fault codes read to determine the problem area

SOURCE: 1992 dodge dakota starting problem

The first thing you need is to have the unit scanned. Check things like the baro sensor,map sensor,coolant temp. and the TP sensor.Also check your fuel pressure,volume and injector spray pattern. I think you will have found your problem,but if not hit me back with engine size and any codes,Good Luck.

SOURCE: starting and running problem

Breaking up like you described can be related to a condition where the distributor drive gear is wearing out.
Had you checked it for rotor tip travel (about 5mm of loose travel is the max) or had the distributor indexed? The indexing procedure appears to be similar to an ignition timing adjustment but isn't the same.
Chrysler TSB 18-08-93 Rev A describes a condition often seen on the 1992-1993 3.9 engine. The distributor drive gear wears out prematurely and then wallows out the support bushing in the engine block. Your oil pump is driven by the same gear through the distributor shaft, so cold engine operation often is worse from the higher viscosity of the oil and the resulting load it places on the worn parts.
The distributor index slips to the retarded zone (trails what it should be) just from the gear wear. Adding in the worn bushing and chain stretch can put the distributor in a position where ignition cross-firing can occur and the switch plate (cam sensor) within the distributor can drop out-of-sync with the crank sensor.
If you haven't done so, check this out for me. Remove the distributor cap and twist the rotor clockwise and counter-clockwise. The total tip travel should not exceed 5mm, which is just about 1/8". Even if it exceeds this, an adjustment/ indexing of the distributor will get it running right again if only for a short while.

SOURCE: Car sputters at start up in wet or damp weather

spray your distributor wires and cap with silicone spray. If this does not work you will have to replace distributor cap as it will have a hair line crack in it.

My 1998 dodge durango slt wont drive past 40 miles an hour


Hello Jeff Winner,

Over the last 20 years ... cars have has a LIMITED OPERATION FEATURE added... When the engine READS something that is not IMMEDIATELY catastrophic... it will allow you to
LIMP home... rather than a complete shut down.

Limp mode:
You SHOULD also have a CHECK ENGINE light... (?)

My best advice is to limp on down to your near-by FREE code reading shop... and have a READER tell you what CODES are registered...

A blocked exhaust system will also seriously SLOW your progress
((soon to stop all-together)).

Hope this helps

Check you exhaust prices BEFORE you go...!!

2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L V8 starts but won't run


By run - do you mean it dies when you put it in gear? Or that it just bogs down when you attempt to accelerate or drive away?
..
A plugged Catalytic converter will cause this. So will a Bad MAP or MAS (Mas Air ) sensor. So will a bad TPS (Throttle Position) sensor.
....
Need more input to answer more precisely.

I need to know where the throttle position sensor is in my 2000 dodge durango v8 magnum 5.9


I have a 4.7 but I believe the TSP is in the same place - looking at the throttle body from the drivers side fender, there should be two electrical plugs. The TSP is the bottom plug - disconnect the connector, and loosen the two torx screws holding it in - 5 min fix.

If the speedometer still works,then no you don't need the speed sensor.The problem sounds more like the catalytic converter Which was a recall item on most Durangos and Dakotas for that year should be replaced for free at the dealer.
