anyone having issues with dodge durango not shifting into overdrive? &just acting like its hesitant at take off? Got a 99 duragno code said needed to replace 3-4 overdrive solenoid. Anyone else have this issue? Is this something that can be fixed at home or absolutely has to be done in tranny shop?

It's like the tranny is in neutral no matter what gear I try to put it in. Attempting to have the transfer case switch to 4 wheel anything has no effect either.

Their is a recall on the Trans my 05 was hooked to the computer on 8-19-11 at goodyear

Hello viewers,so I took my 2006 Durango to the dealer on 7/8/2011 due to the issues I was having with it.. glad to say it was not the transmission. The TPS was shorted,and the wires to the TPS were damaged,so they replaced the TPS and wiring,and serviced the Throttle Body that they said was "Gummed Up"... Since I took my vehicle to the dealer I haven't had any stall-outs,no hesitation,my vehicle has been running great. Total amount was $486. I hope my updated info. was helpful to you.. take care.:)
I hav a 1999 & mines do da same thang also my engine light is on took it 2 a shop and was told its a "Manufactured Controlled Transmission"....any suggestions...thx

Jessy- my 99 durango does the same thing! if its not shifting i can stop turn off re-start it a few times & it will start shifting eventually. i do notice i go through alot more gas. & it works to turn it off & back on when im on an decline dont know why but it works every time. Tran shop says i need new overdrive solenoid going to have it fixed this week.

We had problems about 6 mths ago and now here we are going through it again. Our 98 durango will not shift into 2nd and 3rd gear. You have to shove it into Neutral then back to drive. Then it will jump out of gear so you have to get off the gas. This is so frustrating. Looks like we will have to get a transmission. Thinking about getting a rebuilt one. Anyone else having similar problems and if so is it fixed???
I would not recommend getting a rebuilt transmission or any type of Dodge vehicle. I just put a rebuilt one in my Dodge a year and a half ago with mileage below average and I was told TODAY that it needs to be replaced again. I'm driving a little over 1k miles a month??? Don't waste your money.

Started acting up like it was slipping and went into safe Mode 3rd gear only..No 4th to 2nd Kickdown when i hit the accelerator......
Hooked up my handy dandy code reader; P0700 Trans Control System malfunction....then P0876 Trans solenoid or Gov pressure sensor switch "D".
Regular maint fluid / Filter Changes 46K miles.
Probably a problem in Solenoid Pack....I am praying it is just the sensor!???? I will update when the tranny is opened up.
Can you tell me what you found out was wong with your Durango?I had the same P0700 code show up as well...Took it to Aamaco and they told me it was stuck in 3rd gear(YEAH RIGHT)Now it's costing me $1700...just don't want to be taken advantage of..thanks

2000 Dodge Durango - Experienced transmission not shifting up out of 1st gear - Don't know the cause, but accelerating slowly, and if needed letting up on accelerator after 3000-4000 rpm makes it able to drive .

2000 Dodge Durange - When transmission spun as if there were no gears, I removed the tray and empited all the metal shavings out and bolted it back on. Then I put the recommended fluid in it and haven't had that issue since.

I have a 2000 Durango that will shift thru the gears fine but then it will shift in and out of OD three times and then stay out. If you shut it off and start over it does the same thing again but will not stay in OD. There are no codes being put out so we have no idea what to look for.
Any ideas where to start or what to do?

Don't blame the transmission or the manufacturer. Sounds to includes me like a poorly remanufactured transmission. Your beef, if you have one is with the shop that did the work.

No, it is not the neutral safety switch.

Just a thought. Have you checked the fluid level?

Question... Are you parked on an incline or decline without the parking brake on? If so, this makes it difficult to get the gear selector out of park. Just pull down a little harder.

.

Again, check the fluid level. With that many miles, hope the transmission has been serviced on a regular basis!

You are in for a real surprise pretty soon! Metal shavings in the "tray" Its called a pan! Did you change the filter while you were there? I hope you don't have any more problems, but...
