Wow, nice girlfriend-actually, some trans fluid diluted in gas can clean injectors, but don't thank her either...

It sounds like the crank sensor should be checked, it is low and affected by moisture-check the connector, harness and consider replacing the sensor-not expensive or difficult to do.

Transmission fluid wont hurt anything if it gets pored into fuel tank, in makes a good injector cleaner. You problem is that your gas is draining back into your tank over time. there is a check valve in your fuel pump located in your tank. and this normally this works fine because gas cant drain back unless it is getting air from one of your injectors. so you know what i'm going to say...you will have to deal with this problem or.. change the injectors

Why my '99 Durango won't start? The battery is fine so far everthing is working but the radio?


Hi Sheila, i'm glad to help. 99 Durango's with thew 5.2 liter engine were good about the Crank Sensors going bad. Now, as I can't say that securily with out diagnosis. If it were my vehicle and knowing what I know about no starts, that is diffinently where I would start. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sheila.

    Drive cycle


    Here is the OBD2 emission system drive cycle test procedure.
    Engine coolant temp must be below 70c (158f) before starting the engine for either the first or second trip
    The fuel level should be less than 1/2 full
    First trip:
    Start engine, idle for at least 1.5 minutes
    Drive 3 minutes, hold b/f schdl: 1.5-2.0 msec, selector lever "3rd" eng rpm 1,800-2,000 A/C switch:ON Hold the recommended b/f schdl range. Allow road speed to vary as necessary.
    Drive at 55-65 mph for 1.5 min b/f schdl 2.0-3.2 msec, selector lever "5th" Engine rpm 2,200-3,000
    IGN "off" for at least 10 seconds (not more than 5 min)
    Dive at 50-60 mph for 3 minutes Selector lever "4th" keep engine speed above 3,000 rpm Allow speed to vary if necessary. Do not decelerate for more than 3 consecutive seconds. A/C switch ON.
    Drive at a steady state cruise of 53-58mhp b/f schdl more than 1.8 msec selector lever "5th" eng rpm 2,400-2,600
    Downshift to "4th" and decel more than 5 seconds without breaking, then idle for 1 minute.
    Drive two minutes b/f schdl less than 2.0 msec Accelerate to 41 mph, decelerate to 34 mph, accelerate to 41mph. Do not completely release the accelerator. A/C switch off.
    Idle 1 minute in park or neutral
    Drive two minutes Steady state cruise at 31-44 mph. Selector lever "4th" A/C switch OFF. Hold the accelerator pedal as steady as possible. Allow speed to change if necessary.
    End of first trip. Turn the key off the begin the second trip.
    Second trip:
    Start engine, idle for at least 1.5 minutes
    Drive 3 minutes, hold b/f schdl: 1.5-2.0 msec, selector lever "3rd" eng rpm 1,800-2,000 A/C switch:ON Hold the recommended b/f schdl range. Allow road speed to vary as necessary.
    Drive at 55-65 mph for 1.5 min b/f schdl 2.0-3.2 msec, selector lever "5th" Engine rpm 2,200-3,000
    IGN "off" add four gallons of fuel
    Dive at 50-60 mph for 3 minutes Selector lever "4th" keep engine speed above 3,000 rpm Allow speed to vary if necessary. Do not decelerate for more than 3 consecutive seconds. A/C switch ON.
    Drive at a steady state cruise of 53-58mhp b/f schdl more than 1.8 msec selector lever "5th" eng rpm 2,400-2,600
    Downshift to "4th" and decel more than 5 seconds without breaking, then idle for 1 minute.
    Drive two minutes b/f schdl less than 2.0 msec Accelerate to 41 mph, decelerate to 34 mph, accelerate to 41mph. Do not completely release the accelerator. A/C switch off.
    Idle 1 minute in park or neutral
    Drive two minutes Steady state cruise at 31-44 mph. Selector lever "4th" A/C switch OFF. Hold the accelerator pedal as steady as possible. Allow speed to change if necessary. I especially like the part where they want you to add four gallons of fuel. Not three gallons, not five gallons, four gallons. Gotta love those Nissan engineers. ...and of course they state that if the trace is not followed exactly (i.e. you botch the acceleration/deceleration) you have to start all over again from scratch

    1st 2nd 3rd gear whining noise but stops in 4th and so on,


    this would be an internal bearing inside the gearbox on the input shaft......you have the shft coming in form the engine, and the input shaft houses 1,2, 3rd and 4th gears.....the 5th gear is located on an intermediate shaft.....and then you have the output shaft...now if you had said all gears i would have said output shaft bearing......and if you had said 5th gear only, then this would be the intermedaite gear.....

    but you are only saying 1,2 and 3......why its not happening in fourth is that the gear ratios that the shafts turn in correlation to thre gearing changes as you get to 4, like on a 10 speed bicycle but in 4th it is a 1:1 ratio, so no excessive loads on the shafts are noticeable....

    This will require a transmission overhaul......

    I have a 99 Durango 318 it acts like its not


    U may have a defective fuel pressure check valve in the electric fuel pump, u have the classic symptoms, to check this buy a fuel pressure test guage for your truck, about $40, the test port for fuel pressure is on the top of th engine in the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the injectors, hook up the guage to the test port and run the engine, make sure u have no fuel leaks at the hook up, then shut down the engine, the fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI, if it does the check valve is defective and you need a new fuel pump
