2006 Dodge Durango engine shuts off without warning while driving. My Durango shut off twice in the middle of intersections during turns. It doesn't matter if it is left or right turn. It shuts off after stopping at stop sign and then beginning to accelerate. The Dodge dealer can not find a reason for complete engine stall. The dealer has flashed the PCM. The engine stalled next day after flashing the PCM. When engine stalls there is complete loss of steering. In one year of ownership there has been five engine shut offs. In effort to fix dealer charged me for complete fuel system cleaning which was not needed. A throttle body service which was not needed. This is a problem that also belonged to the 2004/2005 Durango and is still present in the 2006 Durango. The flash to the PCM does not work.

Took it to dealership where bought kept vehicle for almost 2 weeks catalytic converter was bad every since they gave me vehicle back which has been about 2 months still having problems radio turns by itself hit bump the truck turned off almost got rear ended trying to pull to shoulder, check engine light goes on and off, every time I call the dealership to get appt they say they can't give me one I just need to drop the truck off and they will get to it when they can, so what do I suppose to do until they can see what's going on I can't afford to pay for a rental they don't want to assist me with that. I'm really scared for my family safety I'm still having problems with the steering sometimes when I make a turn it doesn't turn correctly it's scary I really need some assistant.
