Question about 2005 Dodge SRT-4
My 05 SRT4 boggs down at 60 to 65 mph in 5th gear. No codes. It doesn't do it all the time. It's like the car all of the sudden sputters like you are running out of fuel. It has been at the dealership twice at two different locations. They can not find the problem. They replaced 3 sensor coils. That did not sove the problem. It is still under warranty. If they can't fix it, what recourse do I have?
This problem is usually very easy to fix, depending on prior modifications to the car. This usually is related to a condition called spark blow out. You can start by replacing the spark plug wires with granatelli spark plug wires. They're cheap, and the best ive found. I had swapped my original wires to magnecor wires and the problem got worse. Go with the Granatelli wires....cheaper, and work better. Also change your spark plugs to The ngk copper spark plugs. I've personally had very little luck with the iridium plugs, however some people really like them. The gap should be around .030
The last remaining option at that point, if this still hasnt completely fixed the problem, would be to replace the stock ignition coil with the available msd ignition coil. This is only usually necessary when running much higher than stock boost levels.
