Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber SRT4 Hatchback

Engine kindof stalled

Driving around 90km then all of a sudden the engine kind of kicked and then the check engine light went on. I found that the engine had little power when pressing on the accelerater.

    I had a similar problem. In my scenario the car would seem to near stall when stopping. It would also jump back and forth at low speeds when trying to keep it slow in a neighborhood. Then the battery would no longer start the car, so I replaced it with a new one (I am at 43,000). When I started it back up the check engine light was on. I took it to Advance Auto, where they will put the diagnostic tester on it for free. The return codes said it is the Cam Shaft Timing Sensor and the Crank Shaft Timing Sensor. DIYAuto has these both for $8,99 US each. I plan on ordering and replacing them. Makes sense to me that a loss of power and stalling and jumping events at low speeds could be timing. Special thanks to Advance for making the diagnostic checks free.

Sounds like overdrive or the torque converter is going out. The torque converter goes into lock up then the trans goes into overdrive.
Your owners manual should have a diagram of the engine compartment showing the dipstick. Is the check engine light on ?

Engine stalls while driving!


as your description is a little uncertain that is why the answer are a little mixed
however the basis of the description indicates a battery problem , probably loose/dirty battery terminals or loose /dirty ground wire to the engine
check the ground wire condition

Transmission problem


If you mean a 100 mph, then that is perfectly normal. They are making engines with governors inside so a person cant try to outrun the police. Mine will get up to 100 and lose all engine power till the speed drops back down to 97. Then the engine kicks back in again.

My 95 camry 4 cyl. dies and or sputters when idling in drive or reverse, it does this sometimes in park too. There is no check engine light on. What is my problem?


solution one:

If your driving in your car and it suddenly dies for no reason. That usually means that the air bag kill switch stopped working. Some kind of safety device to kill the engine.

This is what happened to me I was driving in my car home from work and everything is perfect one minute and then the car DIES!!! The next morning took it to my mechanic and he looked under the hood for 4 hours and found nothing. It wasn't doing it that day. I was insisting that my car was not working properly and the mechanic said he found nothing in the diagnosis. Then I was leaving and the darn air bag light came on. I went back in to the garage that minute. He took the car back in and found the problem within one hour. It was the darn air bag switch.

solution two:

Check the Distributor Cap and Rotor. Check Spark Plugs and wires. Replace if necessary.


solution three:
Check Air filter and fuel filter. Replace if necessary.


solution four:

This is the most expensive solution but if all else fails Change the Control Computer. Garage will charge around $500.

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.
