The throttle body may accumulate an oily, black residue in the bore and on the throttle plate causing hard starting or possibly stalling when coming to a stop. The throttle body should be cleaned during regular maintenance but do not spray cleaners directly on or at the throttle position sensor (TPS) as this can damage the sensor.

A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.

Some models are susceptible to rear main oil seal failures in dirty or dusty conditions. As dirt and dust collect on the oil seal, the abrasion wears through the sealing surface. A rubber plug, installed above the starter, is being used in production that prevents the dust entry near the seal and extends the life of the seal. The plug is available from MOPAR and should be installed any time a rear main seal service is performed.

A Check Engine Light may illuminate indicating a "Cylinder #3 Misfire." This normally occurs in hot weather after the vehicle has been driven, parked for ten to twenty minutes, and then restarted. Heat from the exhaust vaporizes fuel inside the #3 fuel injector and causes the misfire. Installing an insulator sleeve normally lowers the temperature enough so the fuel will not vaporize.
