2000 Dodge Durango Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

Front and rear differential pinion seal leaks are common. A leaking pinion seal will require replacement.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Poor AC performance or no cold air blowing from vents is commonly caused by a refrigerant leak from the AC condenser. Road debris like rocks or pebbles can damage the condenser tubes.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

If the door locks intermittently lock and unlock without pressing the door lock switch, the door and liftgate lock cylinder switches may need replacement. This may occur more often when driving in damp conditions like the rain or through a car wash.

2000 Dodge Durango Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., June 18, 2001

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

Suspension & Steering, December 21, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.
