If the moon roof makes a thumping noise moving from the closed to the vent position, using some lubricant (available from Dodge) on the moon roof seal may solve the problem.
While in automatic temperature control, if the air temperature from the vents does not change after selecting a cooler temperature, a possible cause is a failed infrared temperature sensor.

The turbocharger may fail resulting in any of the following: Excessive smoke from the exhaust, lack of power, or grinding or scraping noise from the turbocharger. Our technicians tell us the most common causes of turbocharger failure are lack of oil changes, hard acceleration when the engine is cold, and lack of a cool down period are high speed driving or excessive loads.
A tappet/lash adjuster noise may be noted from 3.0L engines. Proper testing of the valve lash adjusters should be performed before replacing any parts. Our technicians tell us a full crankcase of clean engine oil is necessary before determining if any lash adjusters are bleeding down and causing a noise concern.
Engine oil leaks may develop from the following areas: Valve cover gaskets, cam plugs at rear of the cylinder head, cam seals, front crankshaft seal, and the oil filter bracket. Leaking seals and gaskets should be replaced. Due to mis-machining of the mating surfaces, as special gasket is required to correct the oil filter bracket leak.
3.0L engines may develop an excessive oil consumption issue. Blue oil smoke may be noted from the exhaust during deceleration conditions (high engine vacuum). Our technicians tell us that this condition can be caused by valve guides dropping out of position. Updated valve guides with a revised snap ring grove are available to correct this issue.
A moan or howl may be noted from the rear when the brakes are applied. It is recommended to check an repair or replace all rear brake components as necessary. If the noise is still present after repairs are completed then our technicians tell us that revised rear disc brake adapters are available which may help eliminate the noise.
