Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

My 2002 Dodge Durango, 4.7L 4X4, idles up and down, is starting to overheat on longer drives, and now is shifting very funny. Oil is good, antifreeze is good. Scan at Autozone only shows random misfires. Any suggestions?

Sounds like more than one problem.As for the heating issue could be a (weak) water pump.If the miles are pretty high it wouldnt be a bad idea to service the tranny either.My 5.9L dodge shifted funny too. I changed the fluid and the screen. Also put a little sea foam in it.

I have a 2005 Dodge Durango and the oil light comes on but only when I come to a stop but goes off ones I start moving again.


Check your oil level and change your oil pressure sensor. If good, your pressure is dropping at low rpm. Can be a bad gasket or oil pump. Check the oil for antifreeze and antifreeze for oil. If either looks like chocolate milk bad head gasket. If not your pump is bad

2004 Durango dies and shifts weird


I will try to help..ihave a 2000 dodge durango with the 4.7 v8..My trans started shifting funny and the rpm's would go up to 2000+rpm when i was driving, which means i was getting really crappy gas mileage at 40mph..took it to shop, engine light on,put it on machine to diagnose..got a generic p0700 code plus a couple others..code basically says tranny is fn up..
Try this a cheap fix first that worked for me..on the transmission,driver side there are two sensors..input/output transmission speed sensors..to be exact..they send info to computer to regulate shift points in trans..upshift and downshift..replace them both although one may be the culprit..cost at the dealer here in Delaware was $40.72 for one..there is one bolt(8mm)and one electrical connection to each..time to replace both about 15minutes you don't even have to jack up truck but you will have to get underneath.

Hope this helps and good luck..if you change them and find the tranny shifting properly..cycling the on and off switch will eventually turn off the engine light..just drive it normally i mean..go here shut it off..get back in start it up and go..it will go out..good luck

2002 dodge durango whinning noise will your


Thank you for getting back to me. I would like you to check your transmission fluid. start the engine and let it warm up at idle speed for about 15 min and check the fluid. It sounds like you do not have enough in it, there for the whining noise with increase of speed since your transmission is speeding up with the rate of your vehicle. If this does not help and the problem persist please let me know. If the noise you were hearing was coming from the u joints of the vehicle it would not make a whining noise with increase of speed. The u joints will only make a noise when they are going bad when the vehicle is shifted into any gear from the shifter( EX: park to drive, park to reverse ECT.)

2000 durango shifts out of overdrive when using cruise control.


My Durango did the same exact thing. It would seem it was shifting from o/d to third constantly while driving down the road. As it turns out, it was the throttle position sensor. This may or may not solve your problem, but is a good place to start.
