AutoMD Member - 2005 Dodge Durango - Engine - 7/24/2014It is saying full, but I have been driving it all week?
7/24/2014 CVOThe fuel gauge meter is stuck or the fuel level sending unit isn't working properly.
This is a procedure to test the fuel level sending unit.
Measure the resistance across the sending unit terminals.
With the float in the "up" position, resistance should be 14-26 ohms.
With the float in the "down" position, resistance should be 214-226 ohms.
Resistance should increase and decrease gradually as the float arm is moved. If odd resistance readings are evident at any point in the movement, replace the sending unit.

7/22/2014 jdlHow long since a tune-up? I would definitely use a gage and check fuel pressure. Usually issues at highway speed, is a restriction of some kind, air--fuel--exhaust.
If you replace the fuel filter, make sure no pressure on the system before taking anything loose, if inline filter. You can take exhaust loose ahead of cat and muffler, see if vehicle will start and run?
Can you check for applicable trouble codes, some of the national brand autostores will check codes for free.
210 degrees F, doesn't sound very hot to me.

7/17/2014 JimmReference the 'Estmate Cost' and 'Find-A-Shop' features on the AutoMD website.
The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
In fact, they (RockAuto) list the oil pump from around $25.70 for your vehicle - of course this is for the oil pump assembly only. Labor, of course will be much higher.
