Known Problems

Automatic transmissions may develop shifting concerns or a shudder condition. Our technicians tell us the shudder condition may be caused by transmission fluid level or quality. The shifting concerns may be caused by a faulty transmission control module (TCM).

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 intake temperature sensor may fail resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and various driveability concerns. Our technicians tell us the intake air temperature reading on the scan tool should be within 10 degrees F of the actual ambient temperature, if it's not the intake temperature sensor should be replaced.
