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.

problem #4

Feb 162013

Durango SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140,000 miles


The car would make a roaring noise when accelerating. Some friends thought it was the torque converter. Turned out to be the clutch fan. Cost me $350. to repair because we replace the serpentine belt also. This car I drive the least, but have the most trouble maintaining.

problem #3

Nov 242011

Durango SLT 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 145,000 miles

While on Cruise control at 70 mph, out of the blue the car started roaring under the hood. I felt no surge with the transmission although it sounded as though it was being revved while in park or extremely high tacking. Although it was right under 2k rpm.

I have had the transmission fluid and filter replaced to no avail. Help.

Durango SLT 4x4 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 154,000 miles

Noise becomes noticeable around 1300-1500 rpms and the volume increases with the rpms. At 2500 rpms the sound is comparable to the regular engine noise at around 4000+ rpms. Fluid levels ok. No noticeable transmission slippage.
