1998 Dodge Durango Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Dodge's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Dodge Durango? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Durango’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Dodge. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
