Later the day they took it back and they were driving it it broke down again. Theres something else but he doenst know what it is, and he needs the brain to run it thru the computer...

Most of your Durango shifting probs are caused by three things - TSP is very common, 2nd, the Camshaft Position sensor, and last the Crankshaft Position sensor--all about $23.00 each -- cheap and easy fixes if they work, if not -- you have some serious and costly problem

We changed the trasmission in our 2000 Dodge Durango and now it will shift into drive and when you slow down and go to speed up it will not shift into drive again. You let it set for around 1/2 hour it will shift into drive. What will cause this. We cleared the codes and a code comes up sensor for governor has limited power will this cause the problem with the trasmission. And if so where is this sensor located?

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Durango new fan belt making some funny noises...

Pop the hood and take the belt off. inspect every pulley (grab and spin every pulley except the crank pulley). Try to listen for grinding or clicking. If any of them do it it is probably defective. They should all spin smooth. Also take a look at the belt tensioner, with the ratchet or wrench, the spring should compress with adequate resistance but it shouldn't feel like its seizing up. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Stratus SE with 39,000 miles on it. Stalls when put in reverse and does not re-start for days to weeks later. Already replaced fuel pump and computer 8 months ago and now the car is doing

I agree with the CPK crank sensor; you can ohm it out to see if its good or not. Another thing that I have seen cause this is the shift interlock switch or sometimes called the safety interlock switch when they get old and tired they can stick and cause the car to not start. Some electronics cleaner may buy you some time if that the problem. One more thing to look at is the fuel filter and fuel pressure at the rail.....I am guessing that was already done with the fuel pump replacement though. Try this when the car won't start; turn the ignition key on to the point when all of the dash lights come on but don't turn the motor over, listen for a 2-3 second humming sound. That sound is the fuel pump coming on. Now roll the key to off and then back to the point where you can here the pump come on again but, don't crank the motor yet........Do this with the key 5 times with 2-3 seconds between turns. on the fifth try crank the engine and see if she starts. If she does you have a failing fuel pump, a dirty fuel filter or a bleed at your fuel rail. If she still doesn't start look at the CPK. Do you have any CEL or check engine lights on? Should have asked that first, sorry. Good luck and post again if you can't get her figured out.

What's an alternate way to shift into gears if the shifter is broke on a 2000 Dodge Durango?

Hi Amy:
Most vehicles don't have extra systems that can be used if something breaks.

My advice is to replace the broken part.

Bought a 1999 durango lady said it needs a tranfer case replaced was driving down road and transfer case broke and blew apart took to mechanic replaced transfer case but started vibrating after driving...

This type of vibration is typically caused by a bad universal joint on the drive line. I've seen a case where a bad u-joint caused the transfer case to crack and explode. Replace all the u-joints on the front and rear drive lines. They are usually only around 15 bucks each at NAPA and will be much cheaper than another T-case.

Dodge durango 2001 going nuts

I installed an aftermarket trailer wire harness and hooked it up to a boat that was not grounded or made a bad circuit. This resulted in a very strange electrical failure to the point the vehicle shut down and I had to disconnect the trailer harness and restart. I also washed my engine once and somehow spayed water through the firewall into the ecm on the drivers side kick panel... Again strange electrical problems occurred, this could be identified by the loss of the keyless entry

Reprogram 2005 Dodge Durango key fob

Go to the dealer. It is the only way, they have to use a computer. Changing the battery doesn't make it lose it's program though. You most likely broke the battery hold down. This is the most common thing I see at my shop. If the key still starts the vehicle, you now have a bad key fob. If not, you may be able to get it reprogrammed.

My 2000 Durango 4.7 liter V8 starts fine, runs fine, but dies when it comes to a stop. I had my software and module redone 3 months ago and about 2 weeks ago it started shifting slow and hard. Then today...

Could be a bad catalytic converter. Have the exhaust back pressure checked. Check the fuel pressure & if possible,drive with the gauge on & see what happens when it dies. If the pressure is good,then it's not fuel. Write back if you have more issues.

2000 Dodge Durango bad steering pully cable and pump

Unless the tow truck operator hooked up to the wrong thing the tow will have nothing to do with it.

I have never heard of any connection to the transmission and power steering, so the chances of the transmission repair causing the p/s failure is pretty low.

Is the repair shop reputible? I would recommend a second opinion from another shop.
