    Ouch, must be a Durango thing. I got the P0440 Check Engine light error last night as I pulled into the driveway.

    Evaporative Emissions System error. Going to have to check the hoses to see if one of them lost vacuum and might be cracked.

    Check the gas cap seal and reset the codes. Could be just that and it's the easiest to check. Yep it's a Durango/Dakota thing lol It's what I get for plowing close to 20+ inches of snow in a driveway that aint been plowed for 3 storms easy lol

    Update on my stuff ... dealer took care of the Check Engine light. might have been the gas cap but my OBD-II scanner couldn't clear the codes for some reason. I did find out I had rotted out bump stops which explains the hard 'bottoming out' feeling which I need to order some new parts for it soon.

    How did you make out with your repairs? Were the wheel flares salvageable?

    How did you do with the snow this past weekend? I got to plowing with it quite a bit. Really like the way the Durango handles the plow. Just have to remember to put some more weight on the rear axle. I will definitely think about getting a wider plow. Too bad they don't offer a V-plow option.
