On vehicles with a 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8, water may pass by the cowl screen (at the base of the windshield) in heavy rain or a car wash. This can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A revised cowl screen may be available to fix this problem.

If the transmission delays initial gear engagement after being parked overnight or longer, it may be due to a suspect transmission cooler return filter. If the transmission was recently serviced and the part number for the cooler return filter contains an "AB" suffix at the end, a new filter should be installed.

Front and rear differential pinion seal leaks are common. A leaking pinion seal will require replacement.

A rough engine idle and/or engine stalling condition may develop, often associated with illumination of the Check Engine Light and an exhaust gas recirculation (ERG) fault code stored. This is commonly caused by a clogged EGR tube. The repair involves cleaning the clogged EGR tube.

A ticking type noise may develop, most noticeable when the engine is cold. This is commonly caused by one or more broken exhaust manifold bolts. Our technicians recommend to replace the broken bolts as needed, also the exhaust manifold gaskets should be replaced at this time.

Some vehicles may develop a musty odor coming from the HVAC system, Dodge has issued a cleaner/disinfectant and a coating for the evaporator designed to inhibit bacterial growth.

The thermostat may fail to close completely, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. This problem will prevent the engine from reaching normal operating temperature; a new thermostat should be installed.

A whining noise heard driving at freeway speeds (more than 55 mph) can be normal noise from the rear axle which is being transmitted through the body. A body/frame damper is available which may help with this concern.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate for many different reasons, some of which may be corrected by updating the software in the powertrain control module (PCM).

If it feels as though the steering wheel has a small amount of play (moves toward you when pulled), a new bearing retainer may be needed for the steering column.

In temperatures below freezing, there may be a squawking or screeching noise from the front suspension. Lubricating the sway bar bushings where they contact the sway bar can help with this concern.

The Memory Seat Module (MSMD) may need a software update if the driver's seat and steering wheel do not return to their memorized positions, or if the seat system intermittently does not function.
There was a recall to test the instrument cluster for a possible fire hazard. Instrument clusters that fail the test will be replaced under the recall.

On the 3.7L V6 and 4.7L V8, Water may enter the spark plug wells and cause a Check Engine (MIL) light. A seal kit for the ignition coils will prevent further water entry.
