Question about 1998 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

Truck cuts out and sometimes quits....

I have a 98 Durango and when you go out of the mornings to start it and leave, it wants to act like it has bad gas or water in it. It cuts out bad, but after running for about 15 minutes, it basically clears up and don't have no more problems with it. The check engine light don't come on. I have added a can of Sea Foam and filled it with premium gas and completely ran that tank of gas out before adding any more and did not solve the problem. I have replaced the crank sensor, but that didn't help. I thought it might be getting moisture in the distributor cap, so i replaced it and the rotor button, but that didn't help either. I am lost on this one and i have already puzzled several people on it. I was thinking the fuel pump, but it seems to cure itself after it warms up.

Any help would be so greatly appreciated. I am starting to get scared for my wife driving it and my daughter being in there with her.

Have the battery load tested, These Durango's are very touchy when it comes to a strong reference voltage to run the many onboard computers.

Truck will start and then stops just started acting up

Found on a '92 Toyota pickup w/V6, a bad/intermittent fuel pump relay.
Had fuel rail pressure so fooled us initially, found by listening to pump run then quit, cycle key and pump would run again then quit, sometimes when trying to start, motor would start and run for a few seconds then quit, or not start at all, this created by intermittent relay operation. Need two people, one at passenger side by tank and other to work ignition switch.
Relay located behind right, passenger kick panel, dealer item I believe about $28.00.
Just another possibility.

I have a 2008 Dodge Durango, 94k miles. Every time I start the truck after it sitting for a while (in the mornings or when I am leaving from work), it has a loud ticking noise and the engine sounds really...

Sounds like the valve lifters are taking longer than normal to pump up with pressure. Getting the motor cleaned out and de-sludged would help. also use good quality oil after the cleaning.

I suspect a bad fuel pump. If you locate the fuel rail you can disconnect the fuel line and see if there is any pressure there.

Car wont start

Sound like the computer to me, if it started acting up before you changed the battery. I am not certain if your model is affected by "no power". Disconnecting the battery with no other power source can affect the RAM of the computer, Random Access Memory. The memory can be erased and the computer would have to be reprogrammed at the dealer. the only thing I can think of, sorry I cant think of something simpler or something you can fix yourself.
