Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

My 97 blazer overheated and stalled out on me. steam was rolling out of the engine and I let it sit for the night. the next day i went to start it and it took a little while for it to start. i had to give it a little bit of gas for it to start and once it did it only ran for about 30 seconds then died on me again. when the blazer started, it bogged and shook so i didn't put it into gear. any suggestions? what all is messed up? how much do you think it'll b to get it fixed?

The overheated issue makes me think you blew a headgasket. Best bet is to do a chemical block test before you spend any money on other parts. This test will confirm gasoline is in the coolant. If you just added coolant because you were low then you may need to run the engine for awhile to get a good sample. . If the coolant was low this is an indicator that you blew the gasket.

Sounds like a blown head gasket or cracked head. Usually about $800 Easiest to swap out Engine and trans. Don't try to fix get a wrecker motor/trans and be done in a day with gurantee

Went through puddle during raining day,the car started smoking never shut off.It started up with no problem the next day,but later that night it shut off while driving and now won't start 2010 accent


When you say "now won't start" does the starter motor spin the engine the engine just never fires, or does the starter motor not even spin the engine? Do all the electrical accessories seem to work correctly? How deep was the puddle? Did the "smoke" smell like something melting, or might it have just been steam from water on the hot exhaust?

You have damaged the engine, the smoke is from burning coolant in the engine due to a blown leaking cylinder head gasket or gaskets. Do not drive this or you will completely destroy the engine.

most likely a blown head gasket between a coolant passage and an oil passage not a cylinder . when coolant gets into a cylinder is when you will see the white smoke and the smell.

If it was diagnosed as being fuel related, then it could be the fuel pressure regulator. The fuel pressure valve may be stuck open (sometimes). The gas will drain back to the gas tank and not maintain fuel pressure.
If you had trouble starting it first thing in the morning after sitting overnight, then it should have been diagnosed as the regulator (or valve that it controls).

Check it, but before you change it out, try a bottle of "Complete Fuel System Cleaner" ($8 AutoZone). It may clear it up in a couple of days' use. Oh, use a name brand cleaner, not store brand.
