2003 Dodge Durango ProblemsWater May Pass by Cowl Screen During Heavy Rain/Car Wash
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.
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.

2003 Dodge Durango RecallsRecall 06V339000
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 2002-2004 Dodge Dakota and 2002-2003 Dodge Durango models because the front windshield wipers may stop working. This is a result of corrosion in the wiper motor due to water intrusion. Failure of the windshield wiper may result in reduced visibility, increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will replace the front windshield wiper module to correct this concern.
