Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
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
