Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Management light came on mechanic said to put oil in put some in car was fine then week later wont start mechanic said oil over fill


I would never go back to that mechanic. If the light comes on, go to autozone or other store and have the code read(FREE) and they will often times give very helpful advice. Most cars have oil lights which would light up if you did not have enough oil and/or were losing oil pressure.

Oil light keeps coming on put oil in it but it runs hot


OIL SENDING UNIT(A SENSOR TYPE SWITCH LOCATED ON ENGINE) MAY NEED REPLACED ASAP FOR OIL LIGHT STAYING ON. IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH OIL IN IT WILL OVERHEAT DUE TO VALVES BEING DROWNED BY EXCESSIVE OIL-CHECK TAILPIPE FOR WET OIL RESIDUE. WILL LOSE POWER ON ACCELERATION.

In my 1999 dodge Durango, when I put it in 4 wheel drive, there's a clunking noise whenever I turn the wheel and it seems to be losing power. Any ideas?


Could be a bad CV (Constant Velocity) joint. If it binds up as you turn it could slow
down the vehicle seeming to lose power.

Losing power


Possible spark plugs or spark plug wires. Is your car 4 cylinder or v6? It's possible that there is moisture inside the distributor cap. If there is, dry it out and spray w40.
