Agreed; the same thought occurred to me too. It was in the 20s here yesterday, and the mid-teens this morning.

The temperature dropped about 10-15 degrees between Tuesday and yesterday. The truck sat most of the day Tuesday as everyone was home due to schools being closed (snow day).

I think a "fuel cap" (i.e. on capped systems where the cap isn't properly tightened) issue is one of the few items where a CEL will self clear.

Re: Check engine light

Just something to keep in mind. A solid 'check engine light' does not designate a problem that needs immediate attention. If it is caused by a momentary glitch, a trip to the dealer may be a waste of time. When the system no longer sees a problem the light will go out on its own after several complete shut downs and restarts. If the light doesn't go out in a day or two it should be addressed by a dealer.

If the light goes out, but you are just curious what caused it, the code will probably be there to read at your next oil change.

Anyone who watches "The Big Bang Theory", knows that Penny's check engine light has been on forever. You don't see her running to the dealer.

Yep - our plan was to give it a few days (tripped yesterday) before heading to the dealer. As it turned out it was off this morning.

I'll have them pull the code at our first oil change just to see what was going on.

For us the light cleared after 4 start/shut down cycles accumulated between some errands last night and this morning.

All good here

Re: Check engine light

Keep an eye out on it ... my 2013 RT has been into service 6 times now because of the misfire issue. The dealer can't figure it out, in fact I am driving around with a flight data recorder right now so they can capture the event prior the check engine light going off. (I push the button and it saves 30 seconds prior to the check engine light). This has become rather annoying and I want to move forward with a buy back!

Ours has not gone back on, so all good here. Good luck with yours.

Well, my check engine light just came back on. Now I have around 2200 miles. It is showing codes P0300 (Random Multiple Misfire) and P0307 (Misfire in cylinder #7). We will see what the dealer says. The engine seems to be running fine.

Steelrtaz, please keep us up to date with what you learn about yours.

Re: Check engine light

I got my Durango back from the dealer after the check engine light came back on the second time for a misfire.

They checked everything out and reported that it is a known problem and they had another durango in the shop this morning for the same problem. A software update is due to address this issue. quote from the invoice:
"Star Case S130800468 CEL ON - Runs rough after cold start. Software update due first Quarter 2014."

The dealer told me they cleared the code, but it may return again until the firmware update is available.

I am satisfied with the explanation for now, but waiting to confirm once new software is available.
