Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 122008

Durango 318 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


After spending 4500.00 to have the engine cleaned out and totally rebuilt, the original problem of the oil pressure zeroing out after it warms up has resumed. I have faithfully changed the oil per the rebuilders advice and the sludge has returned after less than 30,000 miles. I was aware of the problem based on all the complaints you can find on the internet. Dodge acts like they have no idea this problem exists. I tis a known issue in the real world so don't let the dealer snow you! I now get to watch this Dodge engine self destruct due to poor design. Please contact me to join a class action. We need to hold these crooks accountable.
