What is going on with my Dodge Durango?

It was running and shut off, now will not start at all. Fuel pump is working and spark plugs are all good, don't know what to try next. Before it shut off it was making a tapping sound.

A wild guess. Take off distributor cap and see if the rotor has cracked/broken.

SOURCE: chrysler 3.3 vin r v6 mini van, starts then dies

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.

If it only makes the clicking sound during these unsuccesful start attempts, I would look at the battery, terminals on the top of it, the cables, then, barring problems there, replace the starter...accordianman

Try cam and/or crank sensor. If crank to cam timing isn't detected properly it'll crank all day but won't start. I had similar problem on my 2.5L V6 Avenger....drove home fine, no engine light, next morning it cranked, but wouldn't start. The crank sensor was faulty.

Hello; Can you please advise me on what the problem solution could be? I have a 2003 Dodge Durango. This morning when I tried to start the vehicle it just turns over and over without firing. Battery


You need to determine if you have spark at the spark plugs and fuel pressure to the fuel rail. If you do have spark and fuel pressure I would look to the pick up in the distributor as that is what fires the injectors. If you do not have fuel pressure look to the fuel pump relay first, if it is good you are probably looking at a fuel pump. If it has no spark look at the coil or the crank sensor. If everything tests good then ECU.

Could be a problem in the ignition circuit. Check or test coil and ignition module-one of them may be shutting down or shorting out when they get hot.
Verify by checking for spark at a plug wire immediately after it shuts off: if no spark, it is an ignition problem. Besides the coil and ignition module, other possibilities are the crank position sensor, cam position sensor, ecu, the ASD relay (automatic shuit down relay-it's in the power distribution box under hood). If that relay fails, all power is cut to coil and fuel injectors, and maybe the fuel pump also.
Good luck.

I installed a new distributor and entire ignition for a 2000 Dodge Durango. It will not start.


it needs more than spark to run! You need compression and fuel too.Try spraying some throttle body cleaner down the intake while someone cronks it.If it runs on the spray,check the fuel sytem(maybe a bad fuel pump,pump relay,blown injector fuse,etc)

My dodge durango(2003) shut off on me when i was driving yesterday. Engine cranks but doesn't start. Relays and fuses are all good. any ideas?


It sounds like the fuel pump has failed, I'd start by checking the fuel pressure. Turn everything off so you hear whether on not the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to "on". The pump should run for 3-5 seconds and the stop and it won't start running again, until you turn the key to "start".

1998 Dodge Durango Turns over but wont start


could be Fuel Injectors, are bad ?
all you need is # 1 Fuel Injector, to go out that will not get Fire, and Fuel Mixture to Spark Plug.

Replaced battery, problem still exists


Te battery is most likely not the problem. I would start buy looking into the ignition system. (coils, plugs wires, ignition module.

Then I would look into the fuel system (check to make sure the fuel pump is work (check fuel pressure etc..)

If these are both in good working order post another question

1990 Dodge Omni. Runs but shuts down


Check to see that you have good(bright orange) spark to the spark plugs the next time it dies... if not odds are its the coil. If spark is good check fuel pressure, since the pump was replaced if pressure is bad the fuel pressure regulator would be in question.

Spark, but not firing


Three things are required for an engine to run: 1] Fuel/Air Mixture; 2] Compression; and 3] Ignition (Spark). Since you advise spark is present, and barring major mechanical malfunction we'll assume compression is also... which leaves fuel. The easiest way to verify a fuel delivery problem is to remove air cleaner and spray starter fluid or carb cleaner into the air intake and try starting with substitute "fuel". If it trys to run briefly, then you are not getting gas to the engine. Check the fuel pump fuses, as these can blow. The newer cars also have a impact detection device that will shut down fuel delivery if a frontal impact has occurred, but these sometimes are too sensitive and misfire from a minor bump. That would have to be reset by a qualified tech. If the fuses are good, you might need to replace the fuel pump, but check the wiring connections first. The Durango probably has a submersible electric pump mounted inside the gas tank, and they can be a challenge to change out, plus the new high pressure injection pumps are a little pricey for what they are, but if you gotta have it, you GOTTA HAVE IT!
Good luck with the Durango... Hope this helped.
