Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

2001 Dodge durango will start if cranked long enough but will not idle and once it gets to 2000 RPMs it begins to fluctuate between 2000 and 2500 but will not exceed 2500. Problem came on fairly quickly and initially would start easier now will barely start at all. This also effects the tranny, which I assume is because of the RPM issue. Any thoughts.

I agree with the other solution but also check your idle air controll valve. (IAC)

Could be fuel pump on the way out. Could also be dying battery. Have battery load tested, and replace if its the least bit flaky.

2007 Toyota Rav4: RPM fluctuates at around 2000 RPMs and engine seems to stutter or hesitate. Fairly consistent around 2000 RPMs. Does not happen when revved in park to 2000 or 2500 RPMs.

You need to check the engine for a vacuum leak, use a spray can of carb spray and lightly spray around engine (do not get on paint finish) when you hit a leak the engine idle will change

My 2002 dodge durango with 4.7 dies and starts right back up

Our 2001 Durango would start and die immediately unless I really got on the gas and kept it revved up. It also would start right back up.) Once it warmed up, it would then idle normally. The fix was to get a new battery. The old one was (apparently) not holding the voltage high enough to make the electronics and sensors happy when the vehicle was first started.

Why wont my vehicle start?

What's missing ? Fuel , spark . What condition is the battery in ? Fully charged 12.6 volts . When you turn the key to start does the starter spin the engine ? A crank no start or nothing happens when you turn the key to start . Videos on youtube ! Crank no start or no crank no start .

Check engine light on. Will not rev up over 2500 rpm. Fluctuates between 2000 and 2500 rpm and runs rough. Upon first start, you can rev fine and it runs smooth as long as you hold the rpms over 3000. ...

Hi, there are a lot of things that could cause this behavior, so it would help us to diagnose your problem if you could get a scan of the OBD2 connector and send us the trouble code. If you live in the US you can usually get a free scan at your local parts chain.

2002 dodge durango revs up to about 2000-3000 rpms at idle. For no reason. Not pushing on the gas pedal. At idle, truck just revs up.

your Accelerator cable may be too tight and might need slacking off abit

However it could be timing screw is also incorrectly set.
