2001 Durango 5.9 ,w/ auto drive ability problem: starts and runs fine until shift into any gear (even neutral)then is killed ? elect power -- will start in neutral & run in start position / kills when in run. unhooked shift cable eliminating shifting linkage, has new engine , trans serviced recently , also nueteral safety switch eliminated,
is their a secondary ignition system ? have added more grounds both to engine and body and battery ,

I have 2006 Dodge Durango Hemi. After getting to speed (40-60) and then trying to accelerate it seems to buck/sputter almost like a misfire. Dealer cant find anything wrong. Thought is was transmission troque converted. No change. Any ideas???
Have you checked the air filter? this may sound dumb but I had the problem a week after i bought my 2005 magnum. I checked the air filter and it looks like the previous owner never changed it from stock 5 years ago.

I just had my 2005 Dodge Durango transmission replaced at 85,000 miles. It started stalling and evidently the trans went out. My cost was 2100.00 for another transmission. I am glad I still had a warranty.

Hey there.
Often when a vehicle misses in mid range it will studder or skip. These problems can often be a simple tune up.ie- spark plugs, ignition wires (don't overlook wires they often do not "show" symptoms of failure, coil packs( look for cracks/discoloration), distributer caps(look for corrosion or deposit build up), Ignition rotors(also look for corrosion). However These aren't allways the case but a cheap place to start, not only that but for the love of your rig tune it up once a year.
If none of the above help- Crank shaft position sensor. If there is a loose wire,coroded plug, or simply pre mature failure of this sensor it WILL skip studder and even cause you to lose spark intermittenly. Here is the kicker, It will NOT allways if ever give you an engine light. Pain in the butt to diagnose but usually a 60-100 dollar part and fairly simple to change. Also if it seems to skips when you hit a bump don't just assume its a sensor most cases the harness comes uncliped and falls on the exaust manifold. Hope this helps your skipping issues.

We have a 2005 4.7 Dodge Durango. While in park rpm will rev up continuously and eventually will shut off car. Also when driving Durango on interstate rpms will be at a steady two, then will jump to three rpms and then shift hard back to two rpms. Sometimes engine light comes on and other times not. I had the transmission changed, used one, and still same thing. 1000 down drain. I've been reading blogs and seems (hopefully ) may be an egr sensor. Anyone else having problems like mine

I have a 2003 Dodge Durango with 27,000 miles. While driving the other day it started smoking, It acted like it didnt want to move forward. When I finally got it pulled over. I lifted the hood and it was dumping trany fluid out of the dipstick. Took it over to the car wash across the street. Cleaned it off couldnt find any leaks. Checked the fluid showed it was a little full. The week before I had checked it. It was right on the money. Now it is driving fine. Not slipping or missing????? I am so confused? Any Ideas.

2005 Hemi Durango / 60,150 miles.
Lost all Transmission while driving. Turned a corner gave some gas, nothing happened. Coasted to a stop, ran it through all gears, no joy. Whirring sound from torque converter area. Towed to Dodge, Filter / Fluid check good, no debris. Dodge is in-process of disassembly of tranny now. Mech stated "I have No idea"
i just had the exact same thing happen to my 2005 dodge durango. i was just wondering what was the problem with yours? hopefully it wasn't in need of a new tranny

Who knows anything about transmissions and sensors for Dodge Durango?
Have a 2005 Dodge Durango with 73,000 miles. Went out to go somewhere the other morning and it wouldn't shift gears from where it was parked. It is an automatic. It was snowing and cold so thought it just needed to warm up. When I went back to out to try it went in reverse then when I put in drive went about 2 feet and then wouldn't go. Sounded like it was in neutral. It will shift into 4wd, Park, and neutral. Went out later that night and it shifted into drive so I could at least pull it up out of the middle of the driveway. Had no problems driving it earlier in the week. Is it possible it is a sensor rather than the whole transmission needing replaced? Clueless....
Chris, it sounds to me like u need to replace the governor pressure sensor and governor pressure solenoid. to do this, u just need to take off the fluid pan, remove the filter, and then there they sit. you will be able to tell one from the other because their connectors are different colors and one actually inserts into the bottom of the transmission. be careful of the m clip on the back side of the sensor. u will have to take a pair of needle nose pliers and press in on the top to get it out and do the reverse for installation. while u have the filter off, u might as well go ahead and replace it because it will be dirty when u go to put it back on. gaskets are all reusable so u wont need new gaskets.

I am a mechanic, and there is a motto we all go by:If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I suggest that u just keep an eye on your tranny fluid. be sure to check anytime you go to get in your vehicle. you will know when something is wrong.

The spring and sensor are separate. however, they do go together when installed.
