Recently my magnum has been almost sputtering while stopped at lights. Its not all the time but frequent enough to worry me. Its not quite a sputter, kinda acts like its running rough for a second, acts like its gonna stall. I'm thinkin a fuel system problem because I hear a faint thump noise in the rear of the car right after the engine acts funny. I'm not a mechanic nor do I have enough money for a big repair so I hope this is minor. What's your opinion on this??

Do you have any check engine light on? If not, then you need a complete fuel injection service. Go to www.bgprod.com. There you can find a shop that performs that service correctly. If you have anymore questions contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

No check engine light. What exactly needs done with the fuel system?

I also have an '06 magnum which does the same thing. It has done it since I purchaed the car new. It has never shut off when this happens so I have kinda just assumed it was ok. Sorry no real answer for your question, but you are not alone.

We have had this same issue with our 2005 Magnum. The dealership determined that it was carbon build up on the engine. Apparently common. Our's actually did stall out when I was making a U'turn at a light. They charged us to remove the carbon build up and it seems to be doing ok.

Just curious how much they charged you to get this fixed. I already paid $1400 to fix problems they thought were causing issue now I brought to another dealership that said it was a carbon buildup and will cost aprox $750. Thanks
