I put it our and had the truck towed. After reading all these complaints, at least I can see I am not alone and the symptoms make some sense, but what frustrates me to no end is I expend all this money and time with people that are supposed to be professionals in this field and yet I have to diagnose myself by trial and error and see possible solutions on this site- solutions I would think the professionals should have arrived at long go and at less cost and time. I have had two window motor failures, a sudden drop in oil pressure causing the truck to stall and there is something wrong with the electrical system. Do the brake lights work? They say only 10% of people w. The crossmember will get in your way, so have lots of kitty litter around to clean up. The consumer provided pictures of the vehicle.
At times on the freeway in the middle of traffic and other times in the middle of intersections. The only time its does this is when it sits for a long period of time, like overnight. I got the Durango back! I have not had an accident yet and am hoping not to. While the vehicle was parked at a boat dock, it shifted out of park and into reverse. There were no injuries, but a police report was filed.
Just found out a couple of months ago that it was the main solenoid that died. The contact has a police report and the report of the damage to his vehicle. On the highway coming home from work the other night, two lights lit up on the dash. I've tried transmission fix lubricant, changed the fluid and filter, and tuneup. This transmission unit has been inspected, tested and ready to ship.
I have had the oil pump and screen replaced twice as well as the upper intake gaskets. The transmission was reconnected to the radiator properly. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop where the contact was told that the transmission would need to be rebuilt. It can be issue with gears or problem with transmission and needs to be rebuilt. The original auto part must be returned using the provided shipping label.
Then at work one night my battery goes dead my boss goes and buys me a new battery I had to go pick up my kids so he let me borrow his van. I let everything cool down for a little while then tried moving again. I have been driving my Durango for over a year since the repair without any issues. Buying a used Dodge Durango transmission from a non-reliable dealer is an unnecessary risk. Seems to happens on days when the environmental temperature exceeds 75 degrees and disappears once car has sat wherever it stalled for 20-30minutes. The vehicle was resistant to acceleration yet the engine exhibited an abnormal increase in rpms. I see the following potential solutions from the 59 posts that might help me or someone else.
Claims on engine warranties are limited to manufacturer defects in the pistons, heads, block, crankshafts, rockers, and oil pumps. I did lose the full use of my left hand. This is ridiculous as to what the dodge manufacturer will put on people!!! If it's low, then such problems occurs. I don't think that it does. I get back and my truck is running and waiting for me. I've had a friend that kept the car for 7 days and every evening that he drove the car it don't act up. The current and failure mileages were 136,000.
If you dont know anything about mechanics do not attempt to do this on your own or it will cost you a tow bill. Broke right now due to just trying figure out why this car wouldn't shift properly, so I hope that there is a recall on this issue. Though additional parts and accessories may be attached upon purchase, coverage does not extend to sensors, switches, cables, electronics, belts, hoses, water pumps, or manifolds, nor damage caused through overheating or improper lubrication. I never had a problem with it up until now. The engine is working too hard because the transmission is not shifting properly. The vehicle stalled while driving on the highway during morning rush hour traveling at 30 mph.
We took it back to Aamco and they tested it and it showed nothing was wrong. I have had codes run on it and nothing shows up. Feel free to refer to it as I don't plan to repeat too much. This transmission unit has been inspected, tested and ready to ship. Then in the end of August out of the blue it started slipping in and out of gear to the point that I thought it was going to leave me at the side of the road. I had a gut feeling that the problem was not that serious.
Had to speed up and slow down a few times to get it to shift. Manually shift all the way rearward, if goes in park, problem is either linkage adjustment or in the steering column itself. They also found wrong codes were entered into the vehicle's computer and entered the correct codes. So if anyone has every had the same problem please let me know. If pressure is out of spec.
