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.

Durango SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission

I had changed the water pump at around 130000km and still get that engine coolant smell since. Seems like it's may be slowly leaking from a gasket close to water pump. It's been like that for 2 years now. Doesn't leave any traces but smell is annoying. doesn't seem to affect engine either since I keep adding liquid every now and then.

During the past 2-1/2 years I have had repetitive overheating problems and have had to install 4 replacement radiators. The vehicle is now running hot again and losing fluid and I can't figure out why this problem keeps recurring. I have checked for electrolysis and cannot find out why I keep eating radiators in this vehicle.

Engine coolant level drops and I can smell a leak but it can't be found. The mechanic said it must be head gasket or cracked head. This has not caused any problems other than topping off the coolant once a month. I have put up with this for over 20000 miles because I don't want to spend anymore money on this vehicle!
