2005 Dodge Magnum Q&A

2005 Dodge Magnum Question: I lose acceleration and check engine light comes on while driving

This problem is happening more frequently-No rhyme or reason to when it happens. Usually I can turn off the vehicle, then when I turn it back on again the problem stops. I have taken it into the dealer and on three occasions, they could not re-create the problem -
Answer 1
Take it to advance auto,,,,they will diagnose it free. Its more than likely your egr valve -

Answer 3

Comment 1
What is the PCM? I've had the same problem. Started when car was 1.5 years old, after 4 trips to dealer had them replace fuel filters, it stopped for 2.5 years, now it's happening again. I'm either getting it fixed for good or trading it in. -
Comment 2
My Magnum had a similar problem and I wound up stranded in Death Valley. After replacing the camshaft sensor, I no longer had an issue. -
Answer 4
I see this is an old post...so for anyone else experiencing this same problem...it is likely a bad Crank Sensor...especially in regards to the Hemi motor..5.7L. Bu change the cam sensor also. Use only a Dodge Crank sensor since the aftermarket ones are made wrong and fit too loosely in the hole and will leak out oil. Cam sensor you can replace with aftermarket. -
