Why doe's a 2008 dodge avenger shug when it put in gear


I'm not certain what SHUG means. Can you offer a better description?

It is normal for there to be a slight bump when shifting from park to drive, especially when very cold. Something I do that helps is to shift from park to neutral and wait a few seconds before shifting to drive. That seems to ease the process of shifting to drive. Also, check the fluid when the engine is warm and idling in Park. If low, add only the necessary amount.

2008 Dodge Avenger. Cannot shift gear out of


first thing I check is if the brake lights work.

a trick that works on some cars is turn the key to one notch before "run", shift into neutral and start. then take it to the dealer, it's under warranty, right?

2008 Dodge Avenger SE oil pressure light?


Don't worry about the oil pressure light, they key was on, the engine was running and suddenly stalled, the system saw it as low oil pressure on a running engine situation and warned U, it is not the cause of the stall, the stall is most likely related to the following.

Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Dodge avenger 2008


It depends on who you go to and if you want it done right. I went to the Dealership and had them put front brakes on my 2008 Dodge Avenger and it has been in the shop every 2-4 months since then for front brakes. They replaced the entire front brake system and my 08 Avenger is still eating brakes. I finally took it to a friend who owns a auto repair shop he replace the rotors which are total about 115.00 for each from AutoZone and replaced the brake pads for 50.00 so it cost me just parts 155.00 and my Avenger is running smoothly since haven't had problems with the brakes since. Go to Midas and let them change it for roughly 89.00 avoid the dealership at all cost they can run 200.00-500.00 depending on if it is just the brakes pads or if it is the rotors and pads.
