When ambient temperature gets above 65 degrees, the vehicle will completely shut off without regard to moving fast or being stopped. A signal shows in the dash that reads "no bus". car will not start again until it has sat for several minutes and cools down a little. There are many strings online about this same problem with Dodge Durangos. Mine is a 1999 model with 5.9L engine. This has occurred many times, and mostly when my wife is driving with children in the car. It has proven to be very dangerous on the busy roads of las vegas. Many online forums indicate that it is a problem with the connector at the ECM. If that is truly the problem, it is a mfr defect that is endangering lives of thousands of U.S. citizens and should be fixed without guesswork and without delay by the mfr.

Vehicle stalls periodically. It will not re-start right away. Sometimes it starts up after a minute or two, sometimes five minutes, sometimes after an hour or so. We had the vehicle diagnosed by edelen tire & service and twice by conway heaton Dodge in bardstown, ky. Conway heaton verified the problem on February 1, 2002. Neither service center could determine the root cause and fix the problem. I also contacted ChryslerS customer service and got them involved (care # 9699040). They contacted conway heaton to help, but could not. I have a 3 year old vehicle which is unsafe because it stalls without notice. Chrysler and conway heaton tell me there is nothing they can do. Please help!

Vehicle accelerates/ motor makes a knocking sound. Dealer replaced sparks, it caused vehicle to loose horse power and fuel economy. A new intake gasket was put in, and the computer was scanned to add a new code for more fuel. Problem was not solved.

Spark plug/coil wire standoffs design is inadequate allowing wires to come in contact with valve covers causing chaffing and eventually failure of wires.

Engine knocks under load continuously and uses excessive oil. Dealer has told me it is due to faulty computer but it has been 2 years and no fix as of yet. Wisconsin lemon laws say I needed to bring the vehicle back 3 times in one year to declare it a lemon unfortunately I believed diamler Chrysler was going to fix it. Diamler Chrysler contacted and offered no resolution.

Oil and engine light came on. Pulled over to check oil, and oil was very low. Had just changed oil two weeks ago. Consumer noticed a loud noise coming from under engine when accelerating, but not at all times. Another time while driving on parkway vehicle died, consumer came close to having an accident. Dealer said ignition coil went bad. The engine light came on because oil and filter were not changed regularly. The catalytic convertor was damaged but the dealer could not fix it due to national back order.

Repeatly since we have had the car we have had engine noises and failure to advance gear when driving. One of the more frightening incidents was when driving on the highway the engine lost power at 65+. I last evening after just getting it back from the dealer my husband had it out with my son and it stalled again on him. I refuse to drive it to get my kids in college for fear of an accident somehow that does not seem right. I have a claim #7286397. Please help. Pat ryan.
