Do you feel a slight **** when it's engine guts off? If so, then the clutch needs to adjusted since when the clutch pedal is pressed the cuch should have no contact with the freewheel/cam. The **** may not be not be very noticeable when the brakes are simultaneously applied to stop the vehicle. To check this, drive slowly, say 10 mph, press the clutch pedal and remove your other foot from the throttle/accelerator. Now the car should theoretically & practically slowly loose speed and almost come to a stop, so now rev up the engine & observe the cars behaviour. i.e. does the vehicle continue to slow down or if some power is being transmitted, if the car starts picking up speed?
This will establish if the clutch is properly adjusted.Next in line which may be causing this problem is the timing and/or the setting of fuel-air mixture. To check this, just start the vehicle and keep the engine idling for min 2-3 min. If the engine splutters or stops completely, get the engine tuned properly(keep the A/C off during idling).
Finally comes the dynamo. If it has weakened & cannot generate enough current to keep the engine idling(i.e. generation of current is insufficient to keep the firing of the plugs at low rpm). If the timing belt is loose, then too it will result in stopping the engine as you try to stop the vehicle. The belt will slip at low rpm and disturb the timing of the sparking/firing of the plugs. Kindly post the result as a comment........................sodeep

Motor shuts down when reaching normal operation temp

Sounds like the mass air flow sensor or the air intake temperature sensor. Sometimes just wiping out the throttle body/air intake can make all the difference

Good Luck and Happy Motoring

My 2000 dodge durango revs up and down while driving also while stoped at a stop light or even in park

This is a general suggestion (not Durango-specific) for this type of problem: check your air and vacuum hoses for cracking or leaks. A hose may be deforming (to let a leak in) and then flexing back to normal (not leaking), resulting in an oscillation.

Dodge durango 2000 stop runing at20to55mi.per hr.

The fuel filter is clogged. This will restrict fuel pressure, not allowing the engine to receive the proper amount of fuel thus choking the motor. If this was at all helpful, please rate. Thanks for asking.

Sounds like the throttle position sensor - will make it upshift and downshift erratically also. Around $24.00, 5 mins to pull and replace--bottom electrical connector on your throttle body-drivers side-two torx screws hold it in

My dodge durango 2000 just stopped working at the stop light. I just put $40 in gas in it. Before it stopped it sputtered. It will still turn over but won't start. The dashboard light reads "no bus".

If you just put gas in it is possibly a fuel pump. It is common for pumps that are ready to go out will fail after a fill up - when the cool fuel hits the pump. It will still crank and all the electrical components will work - just no start.

Need to know brake wiring for 2000 dodge durango to hool to trailer

Depends on whether you have a set of trailer connecter wires, or if you have to tap in to the wiring for the lights on the car. I'm going to assume that you have several wires coming out of the Durango that are designed for a four wire trailer connector.

White - ground wire.
Green Right stop/turn
Brown - parking lights
Yellow - Left stop/turn

Here's a good explanation of other connectors, and some extra info.

Best wishes!
