2000 Dodge Durango Problems
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.
A rough engine idle and/or engine stalling condition may develop, often associated with illumination of the Check Engine Light and an exhaust gas recirculation (ERG) fault code stored. This is commonly caused by a clogged EGR tube. The repair involves cleaning the clogged EGR tube.
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.

It started running rough, then stall battery would die. Replaced battery then would have to drive it like standard. Neutral at red light to keep up rpm's. Then it would happen while going 45, just slow down like it wasn't getting gas. Now it won't start.

2000 Dodge Durango Recalls
Chrysler is recalling certain 2000-2003 Dodge Dakota and Durango 4WD models because the front upper ball joints may wear out prematurely. Water intrusion can cause rust to develop, which will accelerate wear and cause a clunking noise in the front suspension, which may or may not be heard by the vehicle occupants. Excessive wear may allow the ball joint to separate, which could result in loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace both front upper ball joints to correct this issue.
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.

I absolutely love my durango but it needs some TLC the shift lever broke :S a mechanic said I need to replace the whole steering column...that is pretty pricey I was wondering if there is anyway to find the one little connector and just replace that I DON'T KNOW because I am a lady that knows nothing about repairs. I need my radiator replaced. Before anything went wrong with my truck I loved it...
