Yes, this is normal. The tranny is electronic and if any plugs are not plugged in properly the tranny will not work properly.

    It may have put some strain on the tranny. If you really want to be safe, I suggest you change the tranny fluid and filter. This will remove any fillings in the tranny and it doesn't hurt to do it every 30 to 60 thousand miles.

Where exactly is a crank sensor located on a 4,7 2000 dodge durango\r\npictures would help

It is located on the lower engine block on the passenger side towards the flywheel...On the 4.7L V8, if your standing in front of the car, follow the exhaust manifold down to where it starts to go under the car, that is where the sensor is located, under the car. You will have to crawl under and remove it. It is held on with a single bolt with a 3 pin electronic connector on top. The sensor itself is pretty much just a magnet. It will be close to where the transmission mounts to the engine.
Hope this helps.

02"durango I'm getting a 0700 code and my trans has decided latel

P0700 is a pcm trouble code that basicly says there is more trouble codes in the trans controller side of the pcm.
in order to find out what those codes are you will need a scan tool and then once you have the codes further diagnosis can be done.
depending on what codes come out of the trans controller it could mean something simple like a bad speed sensor or some kinda bad like a loss of prime. gear ratio error codes can be caused by faulty sensors.

Best advice take it to either a dealer you trust or a tranny shop you can trust. if your not comfortable driving it get it towed.

05 Durango transfer case will not engage, stuck in neutral. How or what is causing the problem, how can I fix it?

I had this happen to me today and found that it was a simple linkage problem.

If the 4WD-Neutral-2WD stick on the floor console moves freely try crawling under the vehical and make sure that the shift linkage is attached to the transmission. On mine I found a cotter pin had broken and the shift lever was not staying connected.

Make sure the shifter on the steering colum is in neutral and engine off when making these repairs.

Good luck
