Im at my wits end with this car! Check engine light came on and car acted like it didnt have any power at all, replaced alternator and got a new battery, car started right up but after 3 days same problem all over again. Dont have the money to go to a mechanic but I'm ready to pull my hair out over this thing. Been dealing with this for over a month now with no idea what could be the problem with it any ideas? Also after replacing the alternator and battery the check engine light is still comming on but im guessing you need a scanner to turn that off right?
Why don't you tell us what code it is giving you? Turn the key on then off twice, then on the third time turn it on and leave it on. Look on the dash where the milage is, and it should give you a code. eg. P-0440 or P-0700
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Anytime a Chrysler product of this year has a check engine light, get it to a dealer immediately. The 2.7 liter engine is notorious for oil sludging. This can be a dangerous problem that can destroy the engine.
Your problem may have nothing to do with oil sludging, and I hope it doesn't; but don't take a chance.
REPORT THAT SHOP TO BBB. If they charged you and didnt fix it they stole your money. If a fix may not fix the car you should be told upfront.
Sounds like you will need a shop that has a scanner capable of transmission fault testing.
Most genisys and snap-on scanners have this capability.
well check to hear if you hear the wiper motor working if you do look at the arm take the end cap off loosen the bolt if you here the motor running/tighten them bak up if you do not here the motor check fuse under the dash and inthe engine compartment and replace fuse or fuses/ please rate my response thank you very much
The MAP sensor and Knock Sensor are both very easily replaced. A better scanner will tell you which sensor is going bad on your transmission. An Autozone code reader will not tell you which sensor on the trans. is acting up. Most sensors on your trans. are very easity replaced as well. They just screw in and plug it. It's worth paying to get a "real" scan done. The trans. sensors are inexpensive and you can replace any other your listed sensors yourself.
