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 #1

Durango RT 5.9L

  • Manual transmission
  • 107,114 miles


I'm going to add another story to this ever going soap drama, ''the days of our no-bus'' happened to me while with my 2 boys. Truck shuts off in the middle of the road and took a hour to restart. With no immediate fix, no mechanic to call and say '' I think my battery or my alternator went out''. No one carries PCM and, for one, they are not cheap...Calling the dealer doesn't help, they want me to keep throwing money at it until we figure out what's way... I've read countless posts on numerous sites and I can only imagine all the ones not reported.

But Chrysler Dodger, whoever needs to address this, don't wait for a fatality to occur to fix it.

I've been told it can be

PCM-obviously crankshaft sensor camshaft sensor ignition coil map sensor iac valve tps sensor iat sensor

It goes on and on ....

Did I mention I rebuilt the engine at 97,000 miles, oh I didn't right ? Well yes, I did due to sludge that forms in these engines no matter how well you maintain them...
