My 2003 Dodge Durango SXT- had this since 2003 bought brand new and I take it to dealership for oil change, tire check etc. Follow the maintanance guide on what should be check out, now truck at a ( stop light ) it wants to stall, I was doing 35 on on the street I live on and my truck cuts off no warning, cuts light and all went out on me, an police car was infront of me across the road facing at me and as soon as the light went green he pulls me over and tell for my safety you need to check your power supply I said thank you. The next morning I bring my truck Dodge dealer ship one of the guys seems like he was trying to rush my off stating that they were too busy, so I bring it back the next day they check it out and could not find nothing wrong I even paid ( $85 ) I think there something wrong with my electric system. Now when I am on the road it tries to stall, and the RPM go up 3.5 and back down to 0.5 went to auto zone the guy there guy gave me some after reading when my truck light came back on the codes were general evap system failure, and P0441-evap purge system performance, P0068-manifold pressure/throttle position correlation, P0123-throttle position sensor #1 high, system, P2074-manifold pressure/throttle position correlation - high flow/vacuum leak, P0700-transmission control system, P0440-general evap system failure, now every time I drive it has a lot of hesitation then power in all drop then my battery light come on on the dash and the check engine light by the time I get check out no free to check my problem I was going to report to Dodge company I never had a problem now whatever it is causing me to lose power I was on high was 264 with a lots or car and my truck cuts off I could not do anything no warning light then a police car came behind me and help me off the road. Said to the officer that I got it check out and now I am stuck out here with nothing working I need some to check this out.

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,420 miles
I purchased a used 2003 Dodge Durango in March 2004 with 21,448 miles from enterprise rent a car. On 9/24/04 I took the vehicle to sheehy Dodge in upper marlboro, md for a check engine light problem. The code was P0440, which is for a general evaporation system failure and they replaced the purge solenoid. On 9/30/04 I took the vehicle back to sheehy, as the check engine light came back on. Sheehy's advisor contacted me later that day and said the light was not on and there were no trouble codes displayed, (the light was on when I arrived at sheehy that morning). I was told if the light came back on to bring it straight back, which I did again on 10/6/04. This time the same code came up as the first visit, P0440 and they replaced the L.D.P. leak datec pump. Then again on 11/8/04 the light came back on again and I took it back to sheehy. This time the code was also for an evaporation leak and they replaced the gas cap. On 11/23/04 the check engine light came on again. I have another appointment scheduled with sheehy on Friday, 11/26/04 to find out what the problem is again. During this period, I have driven approximately 500 miles, as my commute to work is only 2 miles. I am at my wits end right now, as this will be my 5th time in two months that this check engine light has come on. I would like to know how many other 2003 Dodge Durango's are experiencing this same problem and how many more times I can be expected to have to return to Dodge service facilities before this problem will be permanently corrected.
