problem #6

Dec 202010

Durango SLT 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 155,000 miles

It started off as just a stall not a big deal then it would not stay running.....after a hour I was able to get home driving with 2 feet had to keep the truck RPM above 1k or it would shut right off.

Few weeks later no problems at all.

I changed plugs wires reg oil changes premium gas only etc....

Last few months stalls when foot comes off gas pedal or turning....can get it running again but have to drive with 2 feet again. No mechanics can find anything wrong. I have tested the battery alternator etc and it has sufficient power.

Last week have changed MAP sensor and IAC valve and reset ecm and guess what? same crap stalls still.

I am out of things to check and paying $80 a pop to have a mechanic say nothing is wrong is BS ...if nothing is wrong I wouldn't be there. Last thing I will be trying when it is warmer than -25 is to pick up a throttle body gasket and take the throttle body off and clean it...if that doesn't work must be a ghost in the machine lol

Grip, I have had this 98 Dodge Durango since january of 2008 and have not had any problems till now. It has just started shutting down while driving down the road. I have just had it in the shop for some work and they said it was fixed and I am going to call the place when it was serviced tomorrow and tell them that it is not fixed.And I want it fixed, and I am not going to pay for it after paying $800.00. I have to pay a deductible for the warranty to cover it and I am not paying that either

Durango Slt Magnum V8 4.7L

1998 dodge Durango stalls when engine is cold and I put it into drive. It will also stall when I restart it and come to a stop or am turning a corner. The engine light is not coming on when this happens so some times I don't even know that it has stalled until I push the gas It seems as though once it has warmed up its better but I still have to let it idle for a couple of minute before I can drive. My mechanic can't find anything wrong with it because no engine warning light??? Other than that it's been a good truck. I live in Palm Springs and the air conditioning is to under powered for the desert. I just had more freon put in and it is better but still under powered for people in the back.
