The Engine May Stall Without Warning
Engine, June 4, 2013
RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
Certain 2013 Dodge Dart models equipped with a turbocharged engine could stall while driving.
What Should You Do?
Chrysler will notify owners of the affected vehicles. If you are experiencing an engine stalling condition, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Chrysler recall number is N32.
The powertrain control module (PCM) manages the engine operation. Turbocharged vehicles equipped with a dual dry clutch transmission have a programming concern with the PCM that could allow the engine to stall when the outside temperature is below 20 degrees. An unexpected engine stall can increase the risk of a crash so your Dodge dealer will update the PCM programming to correct this problem.
