Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Dodge Durango SLT 2WD with the 5.9 V8. I have owned the truck now for almost 5 months and was well aware from the get go that there was a tranny problem...I bought it privately from a guy and he informed me when replying about it that the truck was overall in excellent condition minus the fact that the tranny hesitates i'd say about 2 seconds or so before it shifts into 2nd. I was ok with that and planned on just fixing whatever the problem is myself due to it def being worth it. I'm just curious if anyone can give me any insight as into what it may be before paying all the money to have a computer hooked up to it. Upon buying it, the check engine light was on, ran the code and it was for the input speed sensor for the tranny. Replaced that and the light went on....shifting got a little better but still hesitates to go into 2nd...usually just let off the gas for a second and it shifts. After that there is not one problem with it shifting into other gears(OD)....also if I am going about 50 or so and try to use passing gear, just high revs like it isn't grasping fully onto the 2nd gear. I've read and read and read and what I am seeing is that I am clearly experiencing some kind of pressure loss partially. I have read that maybe replacing the Governor Pressure Sensor and Pressure Solenoid and or Solenoid Overdrive/Lockup, that it may fix the problem. Besides that, I drive the truck regualary and it seems like it is something just minor. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA??? Any info is greatly appreciated...THANKS

This definatley sounds like a pressure problem. The fact you can let off the gas a bit and it will shift tells me that. I would look at the shifting solenoid first though. If you still have contact with the seller find out if he ever had that transmission back flushed. If he did you will certainly need to get in and clean that transmission out. They were just coming out with this machine in 1999 and most the dealers wanted to use it on transmission fluid changes. Problem is it wasn't designed to work on a transmission with a carbon fiber filter and using it on a Transmission with that type filter ruined the transmission by clogging the channels with debris from the filter coming apart. There are several locations around, in my area anyway, that offer a free check up of the transmission before service. You might want to take the vehicle to one of these places to have it checked. I would look at teh overdrive/lockup solenoid.

My 1998 dodge durango slt wont drive past 40 miles an hour


Hello Jeff Winner,

Over the last 20 years ... cars have has a LIMITED OPERATION FEATURE added... When the engine READS something that is not IMMEDIATELY catastrophic... it will allow you to
LIMP home... rather than a complete shut down.

Limp mode:
You SHOULD also have a CHECK ENGINE light... (?)

My best advice is to limp on down to your near-by FREE code reading shop... and have a READER tell you what CODES are registered...

A blocked exhaust system will also seriously SLOW your progress
((soon to stop all-together)).

Hope this helps

Check you exhaust prices BEFORE you go...!!

2003 Dodge Durango SLT, A/C Problem


The rear A/C system in the Durango has its own AC and heater core like the front system does. There is a plastic flapper valve back there that either directs the air to one or the other depending on what you have selected up front.

While the part is not too expensive, the labor to get there requires removal of the interior panel on that side which is not fun. It can be done though.

DODGE DURANGO TROUBLE SHOOTING


The power to the ignition coil comes from the Auto shut down relay. It also runs the fuel pump relay. When you turn the key on it will read 12 volts, but only for about 5 seconds. The auto shut down relay is controlled by the ecm. Check the power on the coil while cranking the engine. When cranking the ecm will lock on the ASD relay.

Do you mean pulleys? Squeaks or Squeals ? Try some belt dressing, or to locate the culprit remove one belt at a time to see what belts and or pulleys are making the noise...
