    They feel that way in the summer...try working on one!!! Providing it's running right and you have no warning lights on, it's fine. No service in 13K? what are you waiting for??? At least get your oil changed!!!

Service your vehicle soon as a precautionary measure. No warning lights, oil level and engine coolant temp ok then I wouldn't worry but follow the recommended service intervals in your owners manual

When I push the gas on my car it won't go past


The car runs fine after it warms up? Is it running with the check engine light off? But it does come on with the key before the engine is started? If the coolant temperture senser is bad ( or disconnected someway) the check engine light will be on but the car might run OK at normal operating tempertures. Have the car checked for codes. It's OBDI so you might have to find a service provider that can ceck the codes on this pre OBDII car. If it turly runs good at normal operating tempertures and the transmission is'nt low on fluild then the coolant senser does'nt always turn the check engine light on if it's bad and still reading something but wrong. Truly running good and the coolant is full ( all the way). chage the senser and see what happens as thier cheap and easy to change with commn hand tools.654437604.jpg

We have replaced our 02 sensors twice initally it


Having owned and thoroughly enjoyed an 01 Durango SLT plus for 6 years, congrats on having the "D".

How many miles on your D? Aging O2 sensors can cause mileage to drop. Which engine do you have? The 4.7 or the 5.9?

You will pretty much find that 11-13 mpg in town is the norm, and 17 is normal for hwy cruising. Towing though in either case will have quite an effect.

My 2006 Durango (24,000 Miles),when cold, takes a long time for the auto trans to shift from 1st to 2nd gear(5-10 seconds) Once its warmed up its fine. Its summer and not cold yet- will this be worse in...


Many modern vehicles will delay the shift position to allow rpms to increase, thus warming the engine up faster. As soon as the engine temp reaches the desired level, the transmission shift point resorts to the normal point.

This is an emissions issue, with the idea that a warm engine puts out lower emissions. This is also why when getting an emissions inspection in states that require it, they want the engine warmed up first.

At 24K miles, I would be hesitant to say the transmission fluid and filter need to be changed, but if it seems extremely noticable and objectionable, that would be the step I would take. Cold fluid is more viscuos, harder to push thru a clogged filter than a clean one. However, unless you've been towing a trailer a good bit, your mileage should be low enough that filter should not be an issue.
