Report A Problem
Often caused by rust, the temperature control lever may be difficult to move. Spray an anti-rust penetrate on the lower pivot for the lever and apply lubricant to prevent future corrosion.
Windows may not roll up or down, resulting in a "ratcheting" noise. This is often caused by the plastic ribbon gear (flex tracks) on the regulator that breaks. Flex tracks are easily replaced by removing the door trim panel.
During turning, squeaks can come from the strut area; the strut mount assembly should be replaced.
Noise coming from the front suspension can be caused by the front sway bar; the sway bar bushings should be replaced.
Worn seals inside the transmission may cause problems with upshifting and downshifting in automatic transmissions.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.  
AWD-equipped vehicles can show a wide range of transmission problems; usually, the wrong-sized tires are being used. Be sure that all the tires are the same and that all four are replaced at the same time. Dodge recommends tire rotation every 7,500 miles.
