I had a heater hose go out which caused my Durango to overheat. I stopped it immediately, repaired the problem and went on my way. I noticed shortly after that there was a couple times I accelerated and it tried to stall out, but then kicked in after about a second or so and continued on as normal. When I got a couple blocks from my home, I tested the acceleration again, but this time when I hit the gas I heard a loud "pop" sound, like a loud backfire, the engine started to idle very rough, I had no power, but was able to coast to my house. I tested it with a OBD II scanner and it gave me codes P0300, P0302, and P0308. I know these are misfire codes for General, cylinder 2 and 8. I replaced the Crankshaft Position Sensor, reset the PCM(I think) but still no luck. I tried re-reading the vehicle with my scanner again, but it keeps saying PASS No Error Codes. I also read the vehicle with the manual way and all it tells me is Pdone. No Errors. I am at a loss of what could be causing this. Help Please!

recommended replacement for shocks and struts in mileage.

I turn the handle to raise it back up and now it just spins. How do I fix this?

I checked both fuse boxes (left of console and under hood). No blown fuses.

Passenger side windshield wiper froze to window, did not notice. Drivers wiper cycled once before I turned switch off. Drivers side works fine, but passenger side wiper just twitches now.
Drivers side electric window is making a grinding noise when switch is engaged. I can hear the motor working. The window is in the up position so I haven't tried to force it down.

everything works with the key in the on position, but when it is in the off,nothing works.

but not all the time and it back fires if i hold the gas down but will get going if i pump the gas to get up to speed....any idea what this could be?

where is the thurmaste at on my car

Is there a perminant fix for the failure of these parts, or is this just something I have to live with as long as I own this car I have replaceed all of these parts at least twice in the last year.

it idles good it just sound rough

Sometimes when I go out to start my vehicle in the morning the overdrive will be The overdrive turns on and I don't understand why it turns on.

The oil filler cap has a whitish sludge on it and the is smell of fuel coming from coolant hose fill cap- as I fill coolant, it runs out of exhaust pipe and muffler. Truck ran little rough originally when it started overheating but it overheated other day and won't start back up along with the list of problems I prior stated. What is cause? Is it head gasket or something else or is it a couple things?

and it stalls if i burp the gas

Also, is it dangerous for the engine to drive around with this code? How much is it to fix/replace it?
