OK, I inherited a 2001 Durango SLT 4x4 4.7liter. It has 201k on it.
The interior and exterior are in great shape.
1. Computer indicated minor emissions leak. Code P0442 I think. Looked
all around and can't seem to hear a hiss or any loose tubing. Reset
the computer and after a while the CE light comes back on.
1. This one developed after #1 and may or may not be related. This is
hard to explain, but when driving and just pushing the accerator
slightly there is a rumble in the steering wheel. Like the tires need
balanced. When I let off the gas, it stops. I am thinking spark plugs,
since they are original.
Work I know has been done:
New rotors / brakes
New power window controls
Power steering fluid (has a slow leak)
Things that need to be done:
Change front and rear differential fluid.
Change Tranny fluid and gasket
I checked the PCV valve and it has back pressure and the ball is free
flowing. Hard to believe since I know it's original.
Any ideas on what could be causing the problems indicated in #1 and
Any other things I should do to get it in good running order?
Thanks you all rock in here!
