rmac, just went through that one myself. got my baby back out of the shop a couple of days ago. All I can say is get ready to replace everything and flush the radiator. We still have no idea what was the original problem with mine, but whatever the initial problem was, it caused the head gasket to blow. Our compression test was coming back fine and so was the carbon test, but the gasket was still blown. Good luck, sorry I was not much help, but there we were literally shooting in the dark trying to find my problem. Oh, we tried bars leak gasket repair, it did not work.

Tried the on off suggestion and got the P doNE code replaced the fuel pump and the pcm. The truck starts and shuts off right away. It is a 2001 Dodge Dakota Sport Quad Cab 4.7 liter V8. Temporary power to the fuel pump plug in. Relaced fuel pump relay.
When the 4.7L overheats it usually takes out the head gasket. The reason is the 4.7L has aluminum heads and a steal block. These 2 metals expand and cool differently and when it gets hot it rips the head gaskets. For replacements I like Felpro perma-torque head gaskets as replacements.

does anyone have info on the code P done on a 2000 dodge durango
I could not start my vehicle again after it started to cough and sputter, had the trouble code, P done on my digital odometer and all, thought the gas pump was going, not that, to test, I put a little gas down the intake, would not start, even though the strobe light was triggering, was a weak coil, replaced the coil and all got better. PS, I use a MSD5 box on my coil, gives smoother idle and you do not have to change spark plugs so often.
