    Rough idle. Dealer did some "update" in response to but problem persists.

    stalls when coming in or out of driveway/parking spaces, on hard turns, and now at stop signs and traffic lights. Starts right back up, but frequently is definitely increasing. Was totally dead last weekend and after jumping, still stalled. Put in a new battery so it starts consistently, but still stalls out.

    Wife almost got crushed both times! Making a turn without using throttle it would just die and put her in the middle of the road. I've noticed it stumble a few times when I turn the steering wheel, but it never died on me. I don't think it'd be an EGR problem more of a steering pump issue maybe idle drops off to less than 500 then cuts off.

    RPM's will rev up and down from 1000 to 3000 and stall sometimes when you let off the throttle at a stop.

    Durango randomly dies after reversing and now randomly dies when idling at stop signs or red lights. Starts right back up but very scary and dangerous.

    I had the check engine light come on. Diagnostic test results came back fault code P0404. Brought to dealer they repaced EGR, It ran fine for about 1,000 miles. Check engine light on again. Fault code P0404 again, called dealer they will look at it Friday. At this rate i will go threw alot of EGR valves. Why can't Dodge find a easier way than boogering on a conglomerate bunch of junk that just sotes up so fast. And should you have to change your spark plugs all the time your EGR boogers up.TIRED of IT. I wish those so called engineers could drive a rolling piece of crap to their important meeting of the minds. And have it stall in the middle of an intersection, while people are flicking them off. I need an aspirin. God help me!!
