Checking the transmission fluid level with reliability is no problem, as the dipstick is easily accessible in the engine bay. Not every model includes this dipstick. Changing the engine air filter is easy to do, as you only have to disengage a few fasteners for access to the filter. These fasteners are easy to disengage. The on-board diagnostic plug is easily visible in the cab of the vehicle. It is located right under the steering wheel.
Some things are problematic on the 1999 Dodge Durango SLT. You will have to lower the tire from under the vehicle for access to it. The lowering mechanism can grow rusted to the vehicle and be difficult to turn. Changing the front turn signal can be tough, as you will have to remove the entire housing first. The bolts you will need to remove are difficult to access. You will have to completely remove the bulb housing for access to the reverse light. The tools necessary may not be readily available for a repair.
