In most cases fumes coming into the cabin thru the vents is from a leak near the engine. If the exhaust is leaking around the engine it should be fairly loud.

SOURCE: Exhaust smell

What does it smell like? If it smells like rotten eggs that is a tell-tale sign that your catalytic convertor is bad.

Bad NEW thermostat? I had the same problem on my first generation Dakota. The problem for me turned out to be the DODGE thermostat I used to replace the old Dodge part. I went and got a Stant from local auto parts store using the standard temperature spec and quit shivering the next time I drove it. I hope that helps!

If on either heat or AC your not get'n any air out of your vents but can hear your blower motor turning then i would say you need to replace your cabin filter.. it filters the air inside of your vehicle

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...!!

HAIRLIKE FIBRES COMING OUT OF EXHAUST


The most common source of the hair fibers and the smell is a defective catalytic converter.
And if it failed it could cause excessive pressure in the exhaust as well as the engine.
Its also possible something happened to the engine and damaged the converter.

I have a 2000 dodge durango that always run hot and smells like antifreeze . i believe someone is putting something in my fuel tank to cause this. please help, thank you


does the temperature gauge say its running hot? Does the low coolant warning light come on? if yes to both then you probably have a small pinhole leak in a coolant line or a leak in the heatercore. pull the dip stick out dont wipe it, does it look brownish-black with small bubbles in it? it should just look black and not smell burnt. if its black thats good! Now go to you exhaust pipe with the engine running is there a lot of water coming out?..a little tiny bit is normal especially on a cold morning. stick finger in exhaust pipe and rub along inside surface...what color is the exhaust grime? it should be light brown to dark brown...if car is tuned properly. go wash finger off now Lol!! if its brown your engine is running perfectly and i dont believe anyone has put anything in your gas tank....so now you just have to see if the warning lights came on due to lack of maintenance or a true failure of the coolant system. Get the car real hot drive it around then lift up the hood and start looking for leaks, if you dont see any sign of leaks, then your car should be running at a normal temperature gauge indication...you need to check this its important the engine temperature has to be approx 180 to 195 degrees +/- 5 degrees if its only running at 100 degrees the thermostat is stuck in an open loop and you not only boil off coolant quicker you"ll also use up more fuel leading to poor gas mileage.

Tips on replacing 1999 dodge durango crank sensor


The crankshaft position sensor is on the right side of the engine just to the rear of the right hand exhaust manifold, the sensor is attached to the block with two bolts, part of the sensor overhangs the transmission bell housing. Look at the bell housing and start going up, you will see the sensor almost inline with the right exhaust manifold. It has a gromment that overhangs the transmissions bell housing. Use a flashlight from below and you will see it,

Blue smoke


sorry to say blue smoke is oil and with what you've described sounds like the oil rings on the pistons have given up the ghost, time for a new engine or a rebuild sorry for the bad news. valve stem seals are the only other thing that will cause exhaust smoke but only when you first start the car never while running. hope i have been of some assistance.
