Question about Dodge Durango

2 Answers

My 2002 dodge durango turns over and starts. It runs for about 3 to 5 seconds then sputters and dies. After multiplle attempts, it started, I drove it for 3 blocks and it sputtered and wouldn't accelerate smoothly. Then it started sputtering and died. Tank is 3/4 full with Shell 87 octane gas. Had induction service last year. Never had fuel filter replaced. When I tried to accelerate, at one point, I pushed the accelerator and the was no raise in the RPMs.

Since this engine is computer controlled you need to first do a OBD2 fault test with a code reader. Next check fuel pressure when it acts up.

SOURCE: Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.

check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

When your replaced the pump did you replace the fuel filter? You may have a fuel pump relay causing you some grief. I believe it is located in the engine compartment in the fuse center on the left inner fender. Check the relay and any related fuses. Check the electrical connection at the pump. They had problems with some of them and they would get kind of hot and distort and corrode. They have new updated ones that can be easily installed.

My 2002 dodge durango with 4.7 dies and starts right back up


Our 2001 Durango would start and die immediately unless I really got on the gas and kept it revved up. It also would start right back up.) Once it warmed up, it would then idle normally. The fix was to get a new battery. The old one was (apparently) not holding the voltage high enough to make the electronics and sensors happy when the vehicle was first started.

I have a 2004 dodge durango 5.7l with the hemi, won't start


I would start by checking the basics which are checking for spark and fuel. If you have a gauge, check to see if you have fuel pressure when the key is turned on. If you have fuel pressure, check for spark. Chrysler products are known for the crank shaft sensor to go bad and cause a no start. Also, if driving for a certain period with the pedal depressed at the same speed, the throttle position sensor will stay at that position if stuck and will cause either and driveability problem or stalling. You may wanna look into replacing or at least checking that. Good luck.

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.

Starts and dies unless I rev it up then it will Idle


The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

My durango suddenly died the other day and when i tried to start it back it would just crank and you couldnt hear the fuel pump running, i went back about 2 hours later and it started?? i drove it the next...


Check the fuel pump relay, it should be in the underhood fuse box, and could cause the problem your describing. Buy one at the parts store ( quite inexpensive) and try replacing it before going to the pump itself.
