2001 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.
Front and rear differential pinion seal leaks are common. A leaking pinion seal will require replacement.

2001 Dodge Durango Recalls
Chrysler is recalling certain 2001-2002 Dodge Dakota, Durango, Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500 models because the park shift interlock system may not function correctly. When this system fails, the shifter can be moved out of the "Park" position with the ignition in the "lock" position. The ignition key can also be removed when the shifter is not in the "Park" position. Either of these conditions could allow the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly, possibly resulting in a crash. Dealers will replace the gearshift blocker and bracket assembly.
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.
2001 Dodge Durango Reviews
Purchased new in 2001. Currently has 120000 miles on it and is used as a daily driver. I have replaced three of the four window regulators and the rear air needed to be replaced. All in all a great vehicle with some minor repairs. Best vehicle for hauling kids I have ever owned.
I absolutly love my Durango, "Knock on wood" i have never had a single problem. But its almost 10 years old and its starting to show its age. The windows are acting up sometimes they wont go up and down, and the radio will shut down completly if u move the bass switch. Compared to cars the same age as mine, its in GREAT shape and condition!! :))
