M. , I came out from work got into my car started it up and it shut back down I tried to start it once again , I ended up calling my roadside assistance to tow the vehicle to a shop the car showed symptoms that it might be a starter , so an attempt to do an engine diagnostic was done on August 16, 2013 at a local goodyear and they stated that the engine would not turn at all, they even attempted to hand turn it and to no avail it would not. At this point they said they did not have the capacity to fix it and I would have to have it towed to a shop that does major engine work so I did have it towed on August 16, 2013 to car czar and the said they were going to do a no crank, no start test on my car and on August 17, 2013 it was determined that the engine was totally seized and would not turn at all and that I would need a new engine. This auto care center also informed me that they could not fix this problem because this particular vehicle has special bolts and I would have to take it to a dealer also in my research for a new engine I ran across 41 pages of complaint from others with this same make and style of vehicle and they also describe the same problem with this car , I no some one who has also experienced the same problem with this same make and model , I bought my car off a carmax car lot a little shy of 2 years ago and it had one owner before me a very high maintenance vehicle and I'm a single mother with children I can't afford to take this kind of loss plus I'm still paying on it this is really sad.

#2 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2006 Dodge Durango
The vehicle involved is a 2006 Dodge Durango. The vehicle, on cold start up exhibited a surging idle, from 500 rpm ranging up to 2000 rpm. The idle finally leveled out and settled down. While driving the vehicle, I noted some surging present while at a steady speed. Once, while sitting at a traffic light while in drive, the vehicle idle jumped up and casued the vehicle to lunge into the intersection. Luckily no cross traffic was present and applying the brakes very hard stopped the vehicle from completly running through the intersection. There was no check engine light present, nor has the check engine light ever illuminated on this vehicle, (other than the bulb check on start up), for any reason. As an ase master automobile technician and a former Chrysler factory trained technician, I connected a scan tool to this vehicle to see what was going on. As stated, there was no cel, so there were no codes active, pending or historical. Observation of the live data stream revealed nothing out of the ordinary. With access to identifix, I researched and found several other instances of the same concern with 2006 Durangos, with recommendations of replacing the throttle body assembly due to intermittent "glitches" in the throttle position sensor sending false readings to the pcm causing the idle control motor to increase the idle speed. I currently have this part on order from my local dealership. Once recieved and installed I will determine if further action will be required. This issue happened on Saturday, April 13, 2013.

#10 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
I was traveling about 15 mph in my 2004 Dodge Durango with the 5. 7 hemi. The check engine light came on and before I could pull over the engine blew. It knocked a whole in the side of the engine and immeadiately stopped. The engine had 113,000 miles on it and maintenanced reguarly. I have read in several forums with several people with the exact same issue. I called Dodge and they informed me that there was nothing they can do. This is an absolute outrage, I am military and living on a fixed budget as it is and can't afford the price of another engine. With all the issues that the 2004 hemi's are having, there has to be an issue with this particular engine. When it would rain my vehicle would stall, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with the engine failing. Several people have had the exact same issue as that as well. This check engine light on problem happened on Nov. 8, 2011.
#11 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
The vehicle was a 2004 Dodge Durango. My husband and I were driving to the store after work on April 24th. We stopped for a stop sign, slowly took off and heard a bang! we had to have the 2004 Dodge Durango towed to a mechanic and found that the rods were bent in the engine. . . Particularly the #7 rod. Not one single warning, no check engine light, nothing!! we kept the oil changed according to schedule! the truck is in excellent condition too; top of the line vehicle with dvd player and everything! now we're facing a $4-6,000 replacement bill. Why would we replace it with an engine that is going to do the exact same thing in a few years because of poor quality?! we are done with Dodge products and we're going to tell everyone we know what has happened to us. It was Tuesday, April 24, 2012 when this check engine light on issue happened.

#16 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 1999 Dodge Durango
The vehicle having this issue was a 1999 Dodge Durango. This has happened on numerous occasions. While driving, especially in extremely hot or extremely cool situations, the vehicle engine shuts down unexpectedly. First symptom - check engine light. Second symptom (3 seconds later) - fuel gauge from half full to empty. Third symptom (immediate) - low fuel warning light. Fourth symptom (2 seconds later) - low fuel warning light. Fifth symptom - engine shut down at highway speed. Completely lost vehicle control. No power steering, no power brakes. Muscled car to the side of the road and barely avoided an accident. Could have been easily killed. Problem appears pcm-related, but from what I've read, numerous people have paid $1,000 for a new pcm only to have the same results. This is a serious problem and has been reported thousands of times on the internet. I hope somebody does something with Dodge on this before a child is killed when the truck dies at highway speed.

#18 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Dodge Durango
The VIN of this vehicle was 1D8HB582X7_. I have a 2007 Dodge Durango limited that I purchased new 07/28/07from kari Dodge Chrysler Jeep, 1177 us hwy 2 e, kalispell, mt 59901. It is still under warranty; this will expire 07/28/10. Since about March 1st, 2010 it has been stalling and lunging at low speeds; which my husband and I thought was condensation in the gas line, but it finally died on the oncoming lane of traffic 03/16/10. So I call kari Dodge 03/17/10 and reported the problem. I brought it into kari Dodge 03/18/10 and they claim the fixed the problem, so I picked it up and drove it through the weekend. On 03/22/10 I called kari again and reported to them the Durango is still stalling/hesitating/lunging. I brought it in again 03/23/10 and by the time I got to work and kari 17 miles later I was just shaking and sick to my stomach. So far the Durango has been in and out of kari Dodge three times and will go in again 04/12/10. Each time they call me they say it's ready. I pick it up and continues to stall and lunge. They claim several people have driven it and even their service manger, mike, could not get the Durango to do what we say it's doing. My husband and I have once again driven the Durango all weekend after kari Dodge has said it is ready and is totally unacceptable. We had a friend drive it today and it did the very same thing we are saying it does. The Durango has a major problem. I'm scared to drive it. We (my husband and I )could be in a very serious accident or be rear ended. I have a case number started with Chrysler customer assistance center #[xxx] and I have also logged a complaint with the ftc -ref#[xxx]. I have kept a pretty good journal this past month in regards to kari Dodge and my Durango. They can't seem to fix the problem. Kari Dodge always asks me it the check engine light comes on----it does not. Kari Dodge also always asks me if I warm it up every morning- I always do. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This issue happened on Mar. 16, 2010.

#29 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Dodge Durango. My 2004 slt 4. 7 Durango had been idling, what seemed rough for a new vehicle for a few day (after a hard rain) when the engine light came on and the idle became very pronounced. It was taken straight to the dealer where it was found that the cylinders were misfiring. They pulled the sprk plugs and found corrosion and rust covering the plug and told me that water was getting into the firing area. I saw the plug and it looked like it came out of a much older vehicle, not a 2004. Well as luck would have it, we had another hard rain and guess what. This time I was told that engineers were going to design a deflector shield to stop this problem as although it hasn't happened often it has happened. Only thing is, no one can give me a time line on when this might begin, let alone be completed. And being a female, who travels alot and alone. . . . . Well, now thats why I purchased a new vehicle in the first place. . . To feel somewhat safe. This problem occurred on May. 7, 2004.

#31 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
While driving on I-91 south in MA (in the evening, with two of my kids ages 5 & 7) in my 2004 Dodge Durango SUV the engine suddenly and unexpectedly cut out - turned off. The vehicle lost power steering and power brakes. The dashboard lights went dark. The headlights remained on and the radio continued to function. The car was in drive and the ignition key was in the proper position - this was not caused the my having inadvertently put the car in neutral or park, etc or by the car having been inadvertently turned off. This was a sudden engine shut down while traveling at highway speeds on an interstate. Fortunately, I was able to put the flashers on (they worked) and coast over to the shoulder and stop the vehicle. I shifted the transmission from drive to park. I turned the key to the off position. I checked the headlights -- they went on and off. I checked the radio it went on and off. I waited a moment to collect my thoughts. Then, I turned the key and the car started right up no problem. I let the engine idle for a moment and checked for any engine warning lights - there were none. I put the vehicle in drive and proceeded on the shoulder for a short distance to see if the car would go. It did. I was able to enter back on to the interstate and resume by trip. The vehicle functioned perfectly normally for the remainder of the trip. I vehicle has also continued to function properly since then without incident. This engine cut out problem had never happened before. I am concerned, however, that the problem could recur at any time without notice. While fortunately this time that an accident did not occur and no one was injured, it is entirely possible that given a different situation and this same problem happened there could easily be an accident resulting in death and/or serious bodily injury, as well as property damage. A mechanic look at the vehicle and didn't find anything wrong. This problem occurred on Sunday, March 5, 2006.
#32 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
I am having problems with my 2004 Dodge Durango. My engine light and throttle light comes on and the engine light stays on and the throttle light blinks. This happened last year in July and it is happening again this year. I bought my auto to the dealer and due to the fact that the light was not on at that time, they couldn't do anything. They just cleaned out the throttle plates and I was fine until now. My auto stopped on the main road while I was stopped at a red light. I had my 2 children under 4 years old with me and very scared. Noone can find the problem. Has there been a recall on my auto in regards to this?. This check engine light on issue occurred 09/27/2008.
#33 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
The vehicle is a 2004 Dodge Durango. In June I had an incident where my engine stalled while I was driving on a side street and at that same time the check engine light had been coming on and off. I brought it to the dealer, but of course the light was not on. They hooked it up to the computer and found no problems. I have been driving it and the light has come on and off over these few months. While driving I have noticed over the past month or two that on occasion, when I am driving anywhere below 50 mph, the rpm needle would drop. Sometimes it was a small drop but you could still feel the loss of speed. At other times it was a significant drop and you would feel the car jerk as it resolved itself. On 3 occasions the engine did stall completely like in June. Last night it become more problematic. It cont to do the above but very frequently and now if I stop at a light or to make a turn, when I push the peddle the car goes very slowly and the only way to get it to not stall is to give it more gas and this makes the car sprint forward. I had to turn into traffic and almost had an accident because of this. This is very dangerous in my opinion and it looks like many others are having similar issues. I agree with some of the others that there should be a recall. It's just a matter of time before someone gets hurt. It was Fri., Oct. 17, 2008 when this check engine light on issue occurred.
