Question about 2002 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Two days after I had a new starter installed in my 02 durango, the A/C quit and there was a loud "blower" noise coming from the engine compartment. I lifted the hood and the noise was from the serpentine belt area, but it was circulating fine. Next day, I tried to start it and smoke came from the engine compartment and the belt broke. What is the likely problem and can I replace the belt to limp it in for repair?

It sounds like the a/c compressor bearnig has gone bad and seized, but check the other pully bearing like the idler and tension bearing just to eleiminate the other bearing for failure. Good luck and keep me posted. If it is the compressor bearing that went bad, you can remove the a/c compressor and buy a serpintine belt that is smaller for your dodge without the a/c compressor. Make sure you know the routing of the belt without the compressor. Good luck and keep me posted.

Why won't my car start? What is making the clicking noises coming from the engine compartment?


soleniod on the starter motor is the most likely source of the clicking noise. The starter motor may be faulty and not cranking over the motor.

Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix


Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

Dodge durango will not start at all , bought new battery ,looked at all fuses alternator is working.all i can hear is a clicking noise coming from the glove compartment


Replace the starter,it is a low geared starter ,witch has contacts,instead of brushes,if I am correct you can sometimes tap the starter while trying to start,and the starter will turn the engine over,use a hammer,do not slam the starter,it will break the magnets in the stater.

02 Durango: loud engine/exhaust sound. Also Recently noticed the cooling fan running more than normal; had someone check the antifreeze/coolant....it was empty....had them put in a 50/50mix of coolant and...


That noise is probably the air injection system which is part of the emmision system. When it is making that noise, open the hood and determine where it is coming from, note if it is a mechanical sound, etc. The air injection if equiped would sound almost like forced air scaping somewhat like an exhaust leak, but less intense.

Keep an eye on the coolant level, you might have a cracked engine block!!!
Watch for steam around Motor Block once the engine gets warm.

Car engine will not crank


on the starter there is a big battery cable and a small signal. wire connect a test light to the signal wire and try to crank the engine. if the light comes on then you will need a starter. be sure you have good connections first good luck.bye the way the light should only be on when you hold the key in crank pos.if the light is on all the time you are on the wrong wire.
