Durango would shift in and out of overdrive while driving at a steady rate. Replaced the throttle position sensor and fixed the problem. here are a few causes for a bad tps. transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on take off, surge while cruising down highway. have a good day ! tps is used by computer to monitor throttle position and adjust the speed, fuel and air to match throttle position. if tps is bad it will send wrong info. to computer. hope this helps !! if all else fails clean maf sensor. check tps first.

This is possible, to check the valve by going under your jeep and looking at the back part of the transmission. You will see a valve with a vacuum line going to it, it is usually located at rear of trans just above trans pan. To check pull vacuum line off, if fluid comes out the valve is bad and needs to be replaced. They can be purchased at most auto parts stores readily. If no fluid the trans may just need serviced.
