I have a 2000 Durango...Nothing but trouble since it was 4 mo. old. Now...4 yrs later, still trouble. I go to start the truck and it will not turn over. It's not the battery or a fuse issue. Checked all major equipment and all seems well. No one can figure out why the car just decides to not start! So much for reliability...

I have a 1999 Dodge Durango that will stall after about 15 minutes of running and if you let it sit for about 5 to 10 minutes it will start back up. I have changed the distributor cap, rotor, spark plug wires, crank sensor, temp. sensor, cam sensor and the computer. I don't know what to do next has anyone had this problem before???

My best friend has a 99 Durango 5.9 liter, and soon after purchase, the right rear door became stuck closed, eventually began opening again, now whenever attempting to lock the doors the lock in that particular door makes a loud buzzing/electrical sound. The vehicle is very luxurious with Infinity sound, leather and tons of power, but now it's in the shop because of "Check Engine" light coming on, might be O2 sensors?? I Hope my friend isn't stuck with a lemon, but from what I have been reading on this web sight, I'm beginning to wonder if this is just the first of his troubles.

I have a 1999 5.9L Durango and the drop in oil pressure has been a known problem. They have a problem with a gasket in the cylinders coming loose and getting sucked in the engine, allowing all of the oil to be blown out of the engine. I've heard of it happening to someone and it blew the engine in 30 miles.

I just happened to get lucky and caught it right away, but of course it still cost $450 and I've been living with a severe knock. But I will give the engine some credit, it's lasted 5 years and 60000 miles since that happened. I just have to carefully monitor the oil level before every trip.

I have a 99 Dodge Durango as well, I hate this vehicle! It has been nothing but trouble, from the electric window failure all the way to the overheating issues. It's just a poorly made product, which I guess is to be expected from a company like Dodge...

Wow I just bought my 99 Durango with a 5.9L V8 a week ago. I'm already having minor problems.

Damn. I'm stuck with a lemon!
