I have a 2008 Dodge Avenger with 136,000 on it. Whenever I switch off the car and start it within around 10 minutes, transmission doesn't engage and car runs at high rpm. After switching off, if I wait for about 10 or more minutes and then switch on, it engages properly and runs fine. It has been happening from when I bought it used, 6 months now. Mechanic at Dodge dealer said there are no codes and that he couldn't find any problem with the car.

This started about 3 weeks ago in my 2012 dodge avenger. I'll try to start it and it just clicks. I change the battery, and now it's happening more frequently it happened both yesterday and today. I took the car in once and they said there was a slow leak somewhere in the car. But no electrical codes came up. I replaced the gas cap and the check engine light is still on and now the battery light is on as well even though the battery is less than two weeks old and was tested today also and found to have no issues. My friend tapped the starter and it began working. But I saw on here that people have replaced their battery starter alternator and egnition switch with no improvement. Does anyone know what's going on with this car?!

My car kept overheating and my mechanic found a leaky gasket that I ended up replacing only to discover I had to replace two thermostats with it as it was all located in the same place/unit. Unfortunately, my car continues to overheat very rapidly. The water reserve boils and the radiator is still full of antifreeze, but my car will still go from stone cold to super hot in a matter of minutes. Any ideas or suggestions?

Car had been sitting for bout 8 will start but doesn't want to stay running. Replaced fuel pump,plugs etc.might have put bad gas,now it won't idle.also,replaced timing belt and it hasn't jumped time.can you help me out?

The drivers side heater blows heat but the passenger side only blows cold. The car then overheats and leaks radiator fluid.

My 2009 Dodge Avenger SXT heater blows cool air. Heater coil was replaced but still it is still blowing cool air. Mechanic had it all day and could not figure out the cause.

Just wondering what this might be and if my 5 year 100,000 mile Powertrain Warranty will cover it or not. I was driving my car and all of a sudden it felt and sounded like something "popped" or "thumped" under the hood, and a few seconds later my RPM gauge went to 0, my battery, engine, and oil lights came on, and my steering started locking up. So I pulled over and got out, and noticed it was smoking. Any idea what it would be?

I've had it put on a diagnostic machine and it came back no problems. .I've replaced the fuel filter and distrutor at first it would start after long periods of trying then run and restart after short periods..but leaving it would not start again for a long time of it won't start at all but sounds like it wants to..the battery is dead now I am disabled and I can't afford to keep trying new parts with no success please help me

I've been dealing with Chrysler headquarters and not getting the help. 2 dealerships claim there's nothing wrong with the car. I've had problems with the started and now I think the transmission will go. A 2013 shouldn't have these problems! I have 2 babies. I have to turn the heat off and freeze because I don't want them to breath that toxic smell. It's almost a burning plastic type of smell. The battery is always dying. I would love to sell this car privately but I would feel horrible to sell it with all these extreme issues. Is there a class action lawsuit?? I want them to buy this car back from me. I spent way to much for a crappy car!
Anyone else have that heater smell?
Or does your car have a "hard start?"
What could it be?
Only 25,438 miles.

I changed the brakes on the front but it is still happening. I had the bearings checked and they appear to be fine too. What else could it be?
