#5 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2004 Dodge Durango
I've owned my 2004 Dodge Durango 5. 7 hemi since 2005. With only 151,960 miles - taking excellent care and pride in it, the #7 rod has been bent. Water has somehow gotten into my motor causing all kinds of issues. Within the past year, it has had issues running hot, running poorly when it rains and rough idle on occasion. After sitting for 24 hours, I went out to crank it and it jumped (I thought a small animal had crawled into my motor) and it shut off. I then re-cranked it and it sounds like a sewing machine. I had to have it towed and am now looking at $4000 for another motor. I've have researched the internet and am totally blown away at the others having the issues with the same exact make and model of vehicle. This is something Chrysler should make right. I am a single mother and live week to week, I can not afford to do this, but I have to. Working full time, caring for a 10 year old and now applying for a part-time job is what this extra expense is causing me to do. I think someone should do something - if I win the lottery, you best believe I will. Chrysler do the right thing. . . . This is happening too much and is a defect - no doubt. Toyota did a recall - maybe if I'm ever to buy another vehicle, atleast they would make it right. *kicks soapbox*. The failure date was Sat., Jan. 21, 2012.

#6 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 1999 Dodge Durango
The car involved is a 1999 Dodge Durango. I was driving on the highway at 65mph, and the vehicle shut off completely. Lost power steering, power brakes, everything. Had 3 small children in the car and had to with all my power (I am 5'9" 235 lbs) navigate the vehicle to the side of the road. I have found this is extremely common problem with this vehicle.

#7 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2006 Dodge Durango
I have a 2006 Dodge Durango and recently it has started dying while driving. When this happens, the "check engine" light illuminates and the engine shuts off. Steering and braking become very difficult and is very dangerous. My mechanic used a diagnostic tool and said it showed a code for the cam shaft sensor, and it was replaced. Happened again a few weeks later. The diagnostic tool showed a code for the crank shaft sensor, and it was replaced. It is still happening. Vehicle never fails to start after getting the vehicle stopped but due to the difficulty in steering and braking when it stalls, I have nearly had accidents. Please help!. This issue happened on 06/18/11.

#8 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Durango
The car was a 2005 Dodge Durango. 1-2 possible concerns- #1- (5. 7 v. 8 engine issue) as many others have complained the vehicle stalls and quits on sudden stops, and when making turn. After the engine shuts off - it can be restarted - but no engine code is generated. The dealer does not know the specific cause, but cites numerous things that it can be - wanting me to spend $$ to investigate each one and replace parts. The service department is not aware of any issues with the Durango and engine stall. The issue is unpredictable and nearly impossible to duplicate - even though it has happened a dozen or so times in the last 2 years. On several of this occasions I (and my family of 5) have been placed in life threatening situations and I have had issues with controlling the vehicle due to a loss of power steering and brake control. This issue may be related to the next complaint. It seems strange that this on many occasions happens right after a fill up. And - even though my VIN was recalled in 2005 and fixed - gas still sprays out the fuel filler and any gas station when you fill the vehicle up fully. To get around this - my vehicle cannot be filled all the way up. This issue is easy to duplicate - but my dealer states that the work done in 2005 should have fixed this and that any other issue are not a warranty/recall issues. Again - the dealer wants to charge me $$ to test and try to find an answer since according to them this problem has already been fixed. This engine shut off without warning problem happened on Sunday, June 1, 2008.

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.

#14 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Durango
We bought the 2005 Dodge Durango in June 2005. It worked great until about October when it began to stall out. This would usually happen right after starting the car. The other day I was driving down the road with my three children, all under five, going about 40 mph when everything in the car shut off. My steering wheel locked, I had no brakes, no electrical, nothing. The entire car shut off. I had no control of anything. I went into oncoming traffic lanes. Luckily there was no one in those lanes. I managed to get the car to stop after pulling into a parking lot. After a few minutes the car started again. I was only a few blocks from home so I tried to drive back home. Car stalled again a few minutes later. I parked it. It went to the dealership and they replaced the ignition and flashed the computer. The day they gave it back to me it happened again. Right away it went back to the dealership. They have had it ever since. It's been seven days and not even a phone call. I am hesitant to take this car back or be putting my children in it again. Something needs to be done about this. I was lucky this time and do not plan to try my luck again. People could die from this serious problem. Apparently I am not the only one. This engine shut off without warning problem happened on March 15, 2006.

The vehicle was a 2005 Dodge Durango.

This has been going on for 30,000 miles and 18 months, it has been to 4 different dealers, and no one can find the problem. One dealer said it needed a tune up that was at 24,000 miles, so we paid $900. 00 for that and new brakes. That wasn't the problem. One month ago, while pulling into a parking lot, the vehicle shut off and I hit a parked car because the steering wheel tightened and brakes locked up. Luckily no one was injured.

#22 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Durango
The car is a 2005 Dodge Durango. Whenever I am stopped or idling, my car will shut off by itself. The rpm gauge will jump up and down and the engine will rev by itself, while my foot is on the brake. The dashboard lights will flicker, then the car shuts off. The interior electrical is off but the running/outside lights are still on. The steering tightens up,but the brakes work. The car is able to be put in park, shut off and started right back up, so far. It normally only happens when going at slower speeds, or stopping and being idle. This has been happening for a few months, normally once a week, but this past weekend it has happened three times. We now don't leave town with this vehicle and I am actually scared to drive it just around town. I have kids and don't want something to happen while im driving at accelerated speed. According to all of the 100's of other complaints I have found, no one is able to figure out what is wrong, dealerships can't find a problem or codes. Which has been my issue. Plus, Dodge doesn't want to do anything to help. I was told I shouldn't look on the internet for complaints. The failure date was Apr. 19, 2010.

#24 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Durango
The car is a 2005 Dodge Durango. My Durango engine shuts off while driving down the road with no warning. Once it shuts off I totally loose all power steering/power brakes. It happens totally at random, sometimes it will happen multiple times a day, sometimes it will go months in between incidents. No accidents have occurred as of yet, but there have been many near misses, especially when driving on windy roads, when lack of power steering is a serious issue. I've taken it to the dealer who has stated that due to the randomness of the issue, they would have to keep it, charging me $80. 00/hour trying to even replicate the issue, no codes were able to be found. After research on the web, this is not just an issue with my Dodge, but has happened to many other people. The first time it happened was around 40,000 on my vehicle, outside of warranty. Once the vehicle shuts off, I am able to put it into neutral and it will start back up fine as if nothing was wrong. This engine shut off without warning issue occurred Oct. 15, 2008.
#25 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Durango
My 2005 Dodge Durango keeps "shutting off" while I'm driving. I am usually turning and going less than 20 mph when it shuts off. My radio stays when this occurs. I have to put it in park and turn it back on. It has done this since 2006 shortly after I purchased it. I have taken it to the Dodge dealership where I purchased twice and have been told that nothing shows up wrong. They suggested the next time it does it, to leave it be and have it towed. Umm, kinda difficult when I am in the road when it shuts off. The failure date was Wed., Sep. 8, 2010.
#26 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2005 Dodge Durango
I have a 2005 Dodge Durango 5. 7 hemi that my husband and I purchased at the end of may 2010. I have only had 5 months and after the first month it stalled on me. The first time it happened I was in a parking lot and went to start it and it wouldn't start. Took 3 times until it did start and stay started. A month later it happened again only this time it shut off while I was driving with my husband and 3 kids. Luckily I was on a back road and was only going 10 mph. So I was able to stop and restart it. It started up fine that time. The third time I was in another parking lot and it wouldn't stay started when I tried to start it. Took another 3 times before it did. The last time it happened was today, October 22, 2010. I was on my way home from taking my kids to school and tried to turn to go up the hill to my street when I realized I couldn't turn or stop cause my vehicle cut off again and I lost complete control since I had no power steering or brakes. I almost went into the ditch but luckily was able to stop since I wasn't going very fast. This was my last straw since if I do wreck it will be my fault and I will have to pay for it since there is no recall out on this situation. I have had it looked at and no one knows what it wrong and thinks I am crazy since it can't be recreated. After seeing how this has been reported since 2005, as long as the gas tank has been reported and got recalled, that this isn't recalled. This is completely dangerous!!!! I have 3 kids and this can cause an accident and hurt someone or even possible kill someone!!! I don't want my kids to die before something gets done. I have reported this and called Chrysler and reported it and I suggest everyone do the same! call 18009921997. If we can report this enough, maybe it will raise attention to someone to do something. I am fearful to drive this truck and even more fearful for my kids to be in it and it is suppose to be our family car. If I get in a wreck I will get a lawyer and I will sue them. It was Thursday, Jul. 15, 2010 when this engine shut off without warning issue happened.
