Dodge Durango Maintenance and Repair



  • How do I narrow which wires the fluid is coming from? Also are you saying the fluid is traveling through the inside jacket (of the wire)riding through the copper conductors?
    Thanks for your time!
  • We have an 18 month old 2011 all wheel drive V-8 Citadel that has suffered two coolant leaks in the last 5 months. The last one took place in October of 2012. We were told the muffler "rubbed" a hole in the coolant tubing. At that time, it took 6 weeks to get the tubing from Dodge. Apparently, it was on back-order. That made us wonder if this was a common problem. We suffered a similar rise in temperature and an apparent coolent leak this morning and are waiting to hear if this is a recurrent problem.

    A muffler rubbed a hole in a coolant tube? I'd need to see that. I'm not real familiar with the new Durangos but it seems to me the muffler(s) are underneath the body and not close to any coolant lines. Could it be a catalytic converter and not a muffler?

    My dashboard lights are all lit,says "no bus" where mileage is displayed and all my guages are at zero(gas,rpm,mileage,battery voltage). I have had the PCM sent out and tested with no problems found. I had a camshaft sensor replaced because my car wouldn't run longer then 3 seconds(no not the battery).The car starts and runs but no dashboard life.
    My mechanic said when he plugged the meter,monitor in it was forced to turn off because it may have seen a voltage. He said he saw no errors in its memory.

    Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated!!

  • We have a 2001 Durango 5.9L. The water pump was replaced in Oct. 2011. It's been sounding a bit funny (no overheating or other issues) and my husband thought it was a pulley but has determined the water pump has a small leak. We only had 21000 miles on this pump. Also, in Dec. 2012 we had the radiator replaced, and in March or April of 2013 it was leaking again. The mechanic said it was a faulty radiator and it was bulging and cracked when he looked at it. That was replaced under warranty. Probably it was just a faulty radiator, but we're wondering, could it be an issue with the vehicle that is causing this water pump to last such a short time? I didn't see anything like that in the forum, but has anyone had a similar problem with their water pump?
