What engine?if it's a 5.2 l V8,you could remove right inner fender shield for easier access..i would not remove trans..if you remove trans and then install sensor to engine,you could break it reinstalling trans..if it's a 4.7..sensor is in block..these can be really tough to get out..rust forms behind sensor and it will not come out..most times these come out in pieces

    DO YOU HEAR THE FUEL PUMP WHEN ENGINE WILL NOT START?CHECKED FOR ANY FAULT CODES?WHAT ENGINE IS IN YOUR DURANGO?
    5.2L/5.9L:CHECK DISTRIBUTOR PICKUP SHUTTER WHEEL IN DISTRIBUTOR..REMOVE DISTRIBUTOR CAP AND ROTOR BUTTON..REMOVE PICKUP PLATE AND CHECK SHUTTER WHEEL FOR LOOSENESS..ALSO CHECK BOTTOM OF IGNITION COIL FOR CRACKS..USE A SMALL MIRROR AND LIGHT..IF CRACKED,REPLACE COIL..ALSO CHECK DISTRIBUTOR SHAFT FOR EXCESSIVE PLAY
    4.7L:REMOVE CAMSHAFT SENSOR FROM RIGHT CYLINDER HEAD..CHECK AND SEE IF ITS DAMAGED FROM HITTING CAMSHAFT SPROCKET TONE RING..IF IT IS,I BELIEVE THERE'S A SPACER YOU CAN GET TO SET GAP OF SENSOR FROM RING..YOU'LL HAVE TO REPLACE SENSOR ALSO

I have a 1999 dodge durango. my wife went to get in it after work & it would'nt start. I replaced the coil and it started right up. A week later it did the same thing. Replaced the coil again but still...


could be crank sensor or possibly the auto shutdown relay. use a test light to check for voltage at the coil. Hook the test light clip to ground and back probe the dark green/orange stripe wire at the coil connector. With the key on, the light should light. If not, swap the relay with another similar one--say the horn relay and try again. If still no voltage, interrogate the relay socket per instructions here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check .
If there is power at the dark green wire, check the connector on the crankshaft sensor. I have pasted your wiring diagram as well as instructions for checking and replacing the cranks sensor below. Please let me know if you have questions.

Crankshaft Position Sensor TESTING On the 2.5L engine, the Crankshaft Position (CMK) sensor is located near the outer edge of the flywheel (or starter ring gear). On other models it is fitted to the right side of the engine block.
The only test you can perform without a DRBII scan tool, or equivalent, is a basic check of the sensor only.

  1. Disconnect the sensor harness connector from the main wire harness connector.
  2. Place an ohmmeter across terminals 1 and 2 (see the illustration). The meter reading should be open (infinite resistance). If a low resistance is read, replace the camshaft position sensor.

Durango shuts off


If the check engine light is on, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault code(s). Most parts stores offer this service at no charge. Getting the codes will go a long way toward figuring out what the problem might be. Hope this helped and best wishes.
