The surges at idle could be a number of problems ranging from anything. if at all possible take it to a mechanic and have him or her run an obd diagnostic utility on it the surges could be from fouling spark plugs 02 censors....etc even a leaky gasket allowing water in the fuel will cause surger maybe even a fuel filter issue. hard to tell without any hands on with the vehicle.

Why does idle flucuate on 2004 Dodge Durango 4.7?

There appears to be an idle speed control problem perhaps caused by a sensor, throttle body issue, or vacuum leak around this area, in a rare occasion this could be an issue within the PCM. Although, there is no service light on there could still be stored codes on the PCM. It would be a good idea to have the computer scanned even anyway.

2000 Durango SLT 5.9Ltr. Will start but idles high, around 7000-7500. All dash lights come on and stay on for a while. Voltage gage drops to below charge range and then all of dash dies and Durango starts...

well the fast idle is 1 of 2 things, Either the throttle is stuck? or a super nasty vacume leak, Check all hoses carefully, if that proves good check intake leak. Something is allowing tremendous vacume into engine causing this high idle, The charging system is a whole nother story

2004 dodge durango v8 when i started it this morning it would not stay running, I would have to keep foot on gas to keep it running and the vehicle was idling very rough

Durangos are very sensitive to bad or failing batteries. Have your battery load tested. If it registers flaky or is older than 5 years, I would replace it anyway.

2004 Durango dies and shifts weird

I will try to help..ihave a 2000 dodge durango with the 4.7 v8..My trans started shifting funny and the rpm's would go up to 2000+rpm when i was driving, which means i was getting really crappy gas mileage at 40mph..took it to shop, engine light on,put it on machine to a generic p0700 code plus a couple others..code basically says tranny is fn up..
Try this a cheap fix first that worked for me..on the transmission,driver side there are two sensors..input/output transmission speed be exact..they send info to computer to regulate shift points in trans..upshift and downshift..replace them both although one may be the culprit..cost at the dealer here in Delaware was $40.72 for one..there is one bolt(8mm)and one electrical connection to each..time to replace both about 15minutes you don't even have to jack up truck but you will have to get underneath.

Hope this helps and good luck..if you change them and find the tranny shifting properly..cycling the on and off switch will eventually turn off the engine light..just drive it normally i mean..go here shut it off..get back in start it up and will go out..good luck

Where is the EGR Valve on a 2004 Dodge Durango Limited, V8, 5.7L Hemi? Is a hard operation to replace?

Have not replaced the EGR on my 04 Durango as of yet, but if you look into the the passenger side front fenderwell you will see part of it. Usually 2-4 bolts and the harness connector are all that is required.

Chrysler EGR valves are not known for their reliability.

1998 Dodge Durango 318 V8. Engine won't idle. Car has been sitting. Battery was discharged - had to jump start. If you keep your foot on accelerator, engine runs smooth. Once you take it off, it dies....

Probably lost idle memory,all computer controlled keep it running for a period it should regain the idle memory if not make sure no rodent chew damage to wires to the throttle position sensor, if check engine light is on scan for faults.

High idling upon starting the vehicle

I have a 2001 Durango with the 4.7 and had the same problem. I changed the Throttle Positioning Sensor, and it has been good ever since.
