Durango LTS 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,000 miles

After purchasing the Durango from a dealership in ten days the transmission starts acting up. Thee RPM's would fly up to 3k and still not shift. I would have to pull over throw the vehicle in reverse in order to get the Durango to start shifting to 3rd and 4th gear again. Its only a quick fix which seems to be getting worse and worse each day.

Durango SLT

  • 110,000 miles

The "transmission" gets stuck in 1st gear until it warms up... I'm not sure if it's a transmission problem or if it's a computer/sensor problem.

Durango SLT 5.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

My vehicle has a problem going from 3 to 4 gear, sometimes 2nd to 3rd. Today on the freeway it tacked up to 5 grand. On surface streets it will go up to about 3.5 grand then shift and go down to about 1.5. 5 grand is way to high for a V-8 to run and my Gas milage is on average 12.5 MPG. I was wondering if this is a Throttle Valve cable problem. Also I noticed some bubbles on the Transmission dip stick today that I had not seen before.

Durango SLT 5.9 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles

I bought my Durango with 60,000 miles on it and i loved the 5.9 liter engine it really hauls ass. I had no problems until it hit 72000 miles. Now when the transmission is cold it doesn't want to shift from third to fourth gear. First and second are fine. After tha,t the motor will wind out to five grand if you let it after taking my foot off the gas the tranny disengages but never fully shifts. Then i get pissed off and mash the gas pedal and the engine shoots up 1500 rpm locks into second gear and damn near burns off the tires. this goes on until the transmission warms up and i get it to shift into third by using the column. i sure hope that it's a simple presser adjustment or a throttle valve and not another piece of sh*t dodge car.....
