Question about 2005 Dodge SRT-4

1 Answer

Loss of power

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.

For the 303 and 4 replace or check spark plugs. Cylinder 3 & 4 are where error detected, if error persists a little more expense likely ignition coils to test you can move 1 and 2 across and see if the error moves away from 3 & 4. Fix nor problem at a time this I'd start. Also check your battery is giving healthy voltage to your system actually do that first.

Clean your MAF (mass air flow sensor).

Google a Youtube video on how to do it.

You just need electrical parts cleaner or MAF cleaner.

Car feels sluggish driving then sudden loss


Has the check engine light gone on? The focus is going into 'limp' mode to avoid damage to components, due to some problem. Even if there is no check engine light illuminated, bring it to a parts store for a free check of any codes stored in the cars computer. You need this info to figure out what is wrong. If after having the parts store scan for codes you still have questions, re-post them with the codes here.

Turbo spooling too high


Sounds like the gate valve is stuck. This valve dumps excess pressure when the turbo makes it.
