2005 Dodge Durango Problems

Seal kit available to prevent water entering the spark plug wells

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8, Water may enter the spark plug wells and cause a Check Engine (MIL) light. A seal kit for the ignition coils will prevent further water entry.

Water 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.

Exhaust 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.

2005 Dodge Durango Reviews

we bought our Durango (2005) in 2014 and everything seemed fine at first, but the A/C stopped working, then the car would just cut off out of no where. And I recently wrecked it due to the car stalling on me and the steering wheel wouldn't move or the breaks would not work. So needless to say I would not be buying another Durango after seeing all the recalls on them.
RUST!!! Within one year of owning this truck my back lid began rusting out. By years 5 the back fender under the gas filler door area began rusting badly.
