In some vehicles, the automatic transmission over heat light may come on with sustained highway driving or driving at a sustained speed. Our technicians tell us that flushing the transmission and changing from Dextron lll to Dextron ll can help remedy this problem.
Some models have an issue where a faulty thermostat does not allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature and because of that the computer will not allow the torque converter to operate in the lock-up mode. Replacing the thermostat will repair this issue.
The torque converter may not lock up because some models with the automatic transmission may have a faulty thermostat that will not allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.

The timing chain tensioner may bleed off oil pressure after the engine is shut down. This can cause a rattling noise when the engine is started cold and a revised timing chain tensioner and guide are available to correct this issue.

Failure of brake components can be caused by contaminated brake fluid. To help prevent this the Brake fluid should be flushed at the very least every 60,000 miles.

One the 3.9L V6 and 5.9L V8 the carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8, an intermittent connection in the crank position sensor wire connector can cause poor engine performance or the engine may crank but not start.

Our technicians tell us that it is important to change the coolant with factory coolant and replace the thermostat every 60,000 miles. This will help to protect the head gasket, otherwise the head gasket can deteriorate and be stressed to the point of failure.

On the 3.9L V6 and 5.2L V8 it is often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.

On the 3.9L V6, 5.2L V8 and 5.9L V8 the Oil leaks commonly from the valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets (front and rear), timing cover gaskets, distributor O-ring, and the rear main seal area. Using fluorescent engine oil dye can be helpful in determining the source(s) of the oil leak.

The speedometer or odometer may not work intermittently due to damaged wires at the rear of the transmission.

If the engine will not crank when the key is turned to "Start," check for a loose connection on the starter solenoid before replacing the starter or battery cable.

The ignition key may become difficult to remove on models with a tilt steering wheel. Make sure the gear shift lever is in "Park" and sometimes placing the steering wheel in the lowest position helps with key removal. The shift interlock cable, that connects the shifter to the steering column, may need adjustment.
An improperly tensioned serpentine belt may cause a momentary loss of power steering assist when driving in heavy rain or through puddles.
Lubricating the flocked parts of the vertical window weatherstrips with Mopar Weatherstrip Lubricant can help with slow power windows or ease window cranking effort.

When the trunk lid weatherstrip (seal) is worn, the lid may rattle, water may leak into the trunk, or dust may get into the trunk. After installing a new trunk lid (deck lid) weatherstrip, be sure to adjust the trunk slam bumpers so the power trunk latch opens the trunk on the first attempt.
The interior lights may stay on or flicker intermittently if the door jamb switches are out of adjustment. The switches may require replacement because they are self-adjusting.
The alarm may activate randomly when the doors, trunk, and hood are all closed. This may happen in windy conditions. Improper height adjustment of the hood can contribute to the problem. The repair involves adding a foam pad to the alarm switch area.
