My 2006 Dodge Magnum hesitates sometimes while in motion and sometimes stalls when I come to a stop, shows error code PO700, but Chrysler store says its not an active code when they look for the problem. The just throw up there hands. Any ideas out there
Re: My 2006 Dodge Magnum hesitates sometimes while in
I had the same problem. I replaced the crank shaft position sensor and it solved my problem. It would stall at intersections and while under light acceleration. It also caused loss of cruise control and a stutter when at highway speeds. Replaced crank sensor and its been running solid for 5,000 miles. $125 fix self installed.

Its possible that you have a faulty crank shaft position sensor. Mine went out in my 05 RT and the car stalled frequently at stoplights and the cruise control would not work. It could be something else but after replacing my crank sensor I haven't had an issue.
I have a 2005 Magnum and was also having this problem. Stalled out a few times and continued to idle rough and feel like it was going to die when I would slow down. At times it would feel like I would get a hesitation and then a surge. Engine light would go on for a day or so, then go out for a few days. First time I took it in, the dealership told me that it was a broken seal (I don't know where), but they replaced it and it continued to happen. The second time I took it to a mom & pop shop, and they told me that it was the oxygen sensor/altimeter, replaced it (only a $35 part), and I haven't had a problem since. That was 6 months ago. Hope this helps...
