2009 Dodge Durango Problems
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.

With the Multi-Displacement System (MDS), repeated Check Engine (MIL) light illumination for low oil pressure may be solved with a software update to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
