1998 Dodge Durango ProblemsExhaust Manifold Bolts May Break
A ticking type noise may develop, most noticeable when the engine is cold. This is commonly caused by one or more broken exhaust manifold bolts. Our technicians recommend to replace the broken bolts as needed, also the exhaust manifold gaskets should be replaced at this time.
On vehicles with a 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8, water may pass by the cowl screen (at the base of the windshield) in heavy rain or a car wash. This can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A revised cowl screen may be available to fix this problem.
On the 4.7L V8 engine, the Camshaft position sensor failure can cause the engine to crank but not start or it can cause intermittent stalling. A new camshaft position sensor will be needed.

both back lites are out plus the dash lites , checked the bulbs they're good, checked the fuses, none are blown. what do i check next and how?
My 1998 Durango seems to be stuck in 3rd gear. Will not go into overdrive. Will only reach top speed of 65 and struggles. Fluid and filter changed with no resolve. One band adjusted but not the other. Could 4-wheel drive still be engaged without knowing. Do I need a new transmission? Help, I love...
Im driving and when I take my foot off the gas pedal and go to break it shuts off what causes it
1998 Dodge Durango RecallsChrysler Recalls 1997-2001 Models Because the Air Bag System May Become Disabled
Chrysler is recalling certain 1997-2000 Dodge Dakota, 1998-2000 Dodge Durango, and 1997-2001 Dodge Ram 1500/2500 models because sound deadening material inside the steering wheel may become dislodged and interfere with the clock spring ribbon, which can cause an open electrical circuit. An open circuit in the clock spring will illuminate the air bag warning light and disable the air bag system. With the air bag system disabled, there is an increased chance of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the clock spring to correct this concern.
