Question about 2008 Dodge Charger

1 Answer

Transmission Tubing/Oil Leak

I have a 2007 Dodge Charger. Exactly a year ago from this Saturday I was in a front end accident. Long story short I rear-ended a lexus and did $400 in damages to their car. When it was all said and done I had $6500 in damages to my car. So here are my 2 current problems:

1) I took my car in to the Dodge dealership that I got the car from because my transmission tube was rubbing against my engine belt. They said my radiator was 3 inches too far in and they moved it out. It's now doing it again. Last time it happened I was on the PA turnpike and it ripped causing my car to smoke and stuff. How would I move the radiator back without having to take it back? Am I correct in asking the dealership to fix it again for free since they didn't do it correct the first time? Should I take it to another Dodge dealership?

2) Just recently I had my car inspected and an oil change (At the Dodge dealership I bought it from) and now I'm losing oil pretty quickly. There is a 5-6 inch puddle everytime I park my car for any period of time. Is there a quick fix to this solution? I'm lost as to what to do.

The thing that gets me is I don't want to drop more money on this car if I don't need to. I know a little about cars; I've never changed my own oil on this car, I don't necessarily want to take it back to its original dealer because they tell me either nothings wrong or ''it will be fine for now''. My best friend is a mechanic but doesn't know too much about my car and isn't available until a week from now because of all of the snow..

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take it to the original dealer and explain the problem. Give them the first opportunity to fix the mistake...and make sure you let them know it will be the second time you've taken it to them for the same problem.

I have a 2007 toyota 4runner V6. I can't find the transmission fluid dipstick


There is no transmission fluid dipstick!! This model- 2007 4Runner does not have one. It has a fill plug on the side of the transmission itself, near the top. Kind of like what a pumpkin rear end has where you fill it to the top of the plug. Same type of thing. The dealer does not want you messing with the transmission at all. My son accidently drained the Tranny fluid, thinking it was the oil plug. They told me to measure exactly how much was drained, and replace that exact amount of fluid into the fill plug. I had to buy a fluid pump!!! They warned to use only their fluid (Which I found is nothing special) and also to make sure that it was filled with the exact amount.

I have a huge oil leak in my 98 Toyota Camry It leaks roughly 1 qt of oil for each hour of driving. What would be the cost of repair?


Need to find out where leak is from. Kinda sounds like a crankshaft main seal, front or rear of engine. Front one is pretty easy to change, but rear main seal leak means you have to drop transmission to get to it. But it could be another seal or gasket. Can you tell about where leak is, from oil spills on ground where parked? Look at engine. Is oil seeming to leak from bottom end or upper engine. May need to wipe or clean it off to see where fresh oil leak develops. A mechanic may need to put it on a car lift to pinpoint the leak. Good luck.

I have a 2006 dodge charger SXT in which I recently purchased about a year ago. Just a few days ago I experienced that my car does not want to move forward of backwards? My shfter is NOT locked and my car...


t is most likely a faulty torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid
wiring and unit is suspect
while it may look that the pan cannot be removed to change the oil there is a way to do it
if you find a dealer too expensive find an accredited service center or specialist transmission shop and get quotes
the transmission will be generic as car manufacturers do not make their own transmissions but use ones built to their engineering requirements
If it appears sealed , then an accredited shop has the equipment to replace the oil by pumping in and pumping out the oil

2007 dodge charge transmission oil leak,, what could it be.. and the amount of cost..


The 2006 chargers had an issue with the O-ring seals around the wiring harness. Mine was covered under a TSB. I'm unsure if it was still an issue in 07 but if the build date was in the latter part of 06 it's worth looking into.

Transmission/Oil Leak


Your transmission cooling line was rubbing because the radiator support was pushed rearward in the collision. If indeed the dealership did do the necessary repairs, than there should be no problem. I'm assuming they got a great deal of cash from the insurance people and used it wisely. However, your problem has not been solved and there is no reason for you to be going through this mental anguish. You might try a quick fix until you bring the vehicle back in. Take a large cable tie (found at all hardware stores) and tie off the line that is rubbing to one side away from the belts. Usually there is another fluid line nearby at which point you'll be able to anchor the line at fault to the one further away. Get that vehicle back to the original repair place and mention the words "Attourney General" in your discussion, that will expidite your repair. Thanks, Dana

There is a good possibility that the rear end moved forward momentarily, taking with it the transmission tube, and pushing into the transmission housing, where it can do a lot of damage. When this happens, the two universal joints suffer as well, even to the point of one of them freezing.
