Hi there, thanks for writing in about your 2005 Dodge Durango. You may have clogged injectors and carbon build up on the valves. Have the injectors and combustion chambers and valves cleaned to see if the problem improves. If you want to have this taken care of for you, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the rough running in order to have this done.
