Make sure you have a fully charged battery. When starting the car, push the gas pedal down to the floor to engage the choke. Then push pedal halfway down and turn the ignition. Try jump starting to see if it is the battery. If it still turns slow it may be a bad starter.

If it is not blowing out enough cold air it appears you may be low on refrigerant. The latter will cause the compressor to short cycle with resultant warmer than normal output temps.

My 2007 dodge caliber will not start but the headlights, radio, windows and lights still work on the car. When I go to start the car all the lights come on and it makes some clicking noise and that is it.


if everything else is working then its probably your starter solenoid. Still check the battery it may have enough juice to power the accessories but not enough to crank.

What cold cranking amp rating should the battery be ?


It should be enough for that size engine. That is 550 AMPs for 30seconds in 0 degrees. Most cars have batteries twice the power than they need. It helps run the accessories like lights and radio. If your car has trouble starting right away, you may want to get the strongest one that you can fit in there. If it runs fine, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Rear breaks on 2007 caliber


It's hammer time! Give it a few cracks around the face, 12:00 then 6:00 then 3:00 then 9:00. If it's not off by then your not hitting it hard enough.

I have a 2007 Dodge Caliber with 48K miles on it & with the weather being 4-8 degree in the morning hours I have a hard time getting the car started?? It seems like it is not getting gas or maybe the cold...


They make heaters for the battery, heater, oil pan, and block. and you might try a thinner oil depending on the temperatures. The heaters themselves run around $100 ( for all) and will last for years. Even a battery blanket will help pretty good. Again depends on your regular temperatures.
