Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

The window glass lift plates tend to bend or break and cause the window glass to tilt and bind in the door. The lift plates can be replaced separately from the window regulator. In more severe cases, however, a new window regulator may also require replacement.

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.

Poor output from the heater and/or engine overheating can be caused by air left in the cooling system after the cooling system has been serviced. Our technicians tell us the proper coolant fill procedure should be used to prevent this problem from occurring.

A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).

Timing cover oil and coolant leaks are common, the oil and coolant don't normally mix. Our technicians recommend to replace the timing chain and cam sprocket if the timing cover is removed to reseal - or for any other reason.

On higher-mileage vehicles, engine oil leaks from the valve covers and front crankshaft seal are common.

Faulty pressure transducers (sensors) or the evaporator temperature sensor may cause the AC to stop functioning. The body control module (BCM) may lock up and create similar symptoms. Disconnect the battery for five seconds before resetting the BCM.

Debris and corrosion in the AC housing may cause the AC evaporator core to develop a refrigerant leak.

A worn AC belt idler pulley may cause the AC belt to roll over in the pulleys or come off completely.

When the car is accelerating, spark plug cables may cause intermittent misfires and popping sounds from the engine compartment.

The fuel level sensors can wear out and cause erratic or inaccurate fuel gauge readings.

When shifting from Drive to Reverse (or vice versa), worn outer CV joints may cause a clunk or clicking noise. A loose axle nut can cause the same symptoms.
