Yes you broke the fuel gauge sending unit in the tank oreven the tankitself as ithas a baffle in it to reduce the slosh of the gas but with it broken loose inside the tank it crashes into the fuel pump and the gauge sending unit and may have broken it completely off.. This is not a job for a clunsly mechanic or someone who hasn't done it before. If you haven't taken a uel tank down drained a fuel tank and put a fuel gauge in and out this is not a good job to be teaching yourself.. Get someone to help you that knows want thier doing or just have someone do the work that does it all the time. There are plenty of mechanics that can do this job saftly and you might not be it. Hire the repair done and if they burn it or blow it at least it did'nt get you.

Why does my 2005 dodge durango keep stalling and the check engine light comes off and on ocasionally

The check engine light indicates that you have a failing system that is monitored by the cars computer(s). In this case it is probably a sensor that controls fuel or ignition to the engine. You can probably go to a nearby auto parts store and have the code read from the computer for free. If you do this, it will give you and idea where to start your diagnosis. If you post the code to this forum, you will likely receive numerous ideas on where to start looking and how to repair the problem.

Hope this helps.

2005 dodge durango driving down the road,

Are you actually hearing the engine speed change as well when this happens, or just seeing the tach needle make crazy readings??

If only the tach is being funky, then I would say a speed sensor on the tranny is on its way out. There is also a speed sensor on the rear axle of some Durangos that can cause this issue.

Old car noise on my 2005 durango sounds like the muffler

The 2005 Durango has a notorious issue with the exhaust manifold blowing out
it is a $10-$15 fix if you have someone to replace it.

when you first start it up it sounds loud like the HEMI but then it settles down, also the gas mileage and the power have been reduced as well. best bet is to buy the part and a chiltons manual. $15 bucks and a case of beer later you should be good to go. Midas muffler shop can confirm the exhaust leak as can any mechanic worth a **** and they SHOULD NOT CHARGE YOU!!!
