Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber SRT4 Hatchback

1 Answer

Engin stall I have a 2007dodge caliber Automatic and I have problem. I'll be at a red light and it will turn green and I'll hit the gas and nothing it will feel like it's going to die but then a second or two later it will go. It also tends to sputter at stops. This doesnt just happen when I'm stopped, at times while driving I'll gas it but the engine just sputters and nothing happens. My car's never actually stalled out and died but if this problem happens at the wrong place and time, like when I'm making a left turn with oncoming traffic coming at me and I'm gasing it but my car wont moving there coud be serious problem !!!! I'm worried :/ My car only came with a 30,000 mile warranty and I just passed the 30,000 mile mark so now I feel screwed.My mechanic cant find the problem and the dealer's no help. If anyone has had this problem and knows how to fix it PLEASE email me.

You should have the 3year 36,000 warrenty and if your the original owner then you have the powertrain warrenty too. Not sure what the problem is without looking at the vehicle myself with the computer hooked up. Take it to the dealer. Sounds almost like the PCM is in Plant mode. It when the PCM won't let the vehicle accelerate like you would on the street. I'm a chrysler tech and there is quick hit that I found but it doesn't mean that this is the problem. They should be able to help you.

Why does my 1990 f150 stall when i hit the gas to hard


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
Have you replaced the fuel filter and checked fuel pressure ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

Read the codes off of the engine computer with an obd-II scanner. If it's missing and shaking as badly as you say, then there probably are codes stored in the engine computer that can point you in the right direction.

Engine was running fine..stopped at stop light when green hit the gas pedal and the engine stalled.. and now won't restart


Well you have to check for the usual things. See if it is getting gas, check for spark. If it made a "pop" when it died you may have blown your timing belt or it may have jumped a cog or two.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

91 automatic Cavalier stalls after stopping


It sounds like the torque converter clutch. Just unplug it. It is the square 4 pin plug on the front of the transmission. Once it is unplugged and you get it unlocked, it will be fine. Just leave it unplugged, it won't hurt anything.
