FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

8/16/2014 - VENICE, FL
IT IS HARD STARTING AND WILL STALL ANYWHERE BETWEEN 0 TO 45 MPH. WHEN IT STARTS ROUGH IT WILL NOT GO FORWARD OR REVERSE WITHOUT STALLING. IT SEEMS TO BE WORSE AFTER FILLING THE GAS TANK. WHEN THE CAR STALLS IT DOES SO WITH NO WARNING AND CAN LEAVE YOU WITH NO POWER STEERING OR BRAKES. IT DID IT OFF AND ON AT FIRST BUT NOW DOES ALMOST EVERY TIME I RUN IT. I TOOK IT TO A DODGE DEALER AND GAVE HIM A COPY OF THE LIFETIME WARRANTY GAS TANK PROBLEM AND TOLD HIM OF THE SYMPTOMS OF THE CAR. HE IGNORED ME AND DID 4 FLASHES ON THE CAR PLUS $110 OF "CLEANUP" WORK ON THE CAR AND TOLD ME IT WAS FIXED. ON THE WAY HOME IT STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HIGHWAY WHILE MY WIFE WAS DRIVING AND SHE HAD NO STEERING. THE DEALER PAPERWORK SAID THEY PULLED UP 4 CODES ON THE CAR'S COMPUTER, WHICH I GOT NONE OF WHEN I RAN MY CODE READER ON IT BEFORE TAKING IT TO THEM. ONE OF THE REPORTED CODES DOES NOT EVEN SHOW ON THE CHART AND ANOTHER ONE WAS A "C" CODE FOR A CHASSE PROBLEM. UPON GETTING THE CAR HOME, AFTER STALLING SEVERAL TIMES ON THE WAY HOME, I CALLED THE BANK AND STOPPED THE PAYMENT FOR THE WORK THEY SAY THEY DID. I HAVE ANOTHER APPOINTMENT WITH THE DEALER I BOUGHT THE CAR FROM (FARTHER AWAY) BUT HOW DO I GET THEM TO DO THE REPAIR I WANT, NOT WHAT THEY FEEL LIKE DOING? THANKS.

I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THIS VEHICLE, AND HAVE REGULARLY MAINTAINED IT AND PERFORMED ALL THE SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE AT THE MANUFACTURER'S SUGGESTED INTERVALS. THE VEHICLE OPERATED NORMALLY, WITH NO INDICATIONS OF ANY ISSUES. ON 8/12/14, I WENT TO START MY VEHICLE AND IT MADE A HORRENDOUS BANGING NOISE BEFORE IMMEDIATELY SHUTTING DOWN. I HAD TO HAVE THE CAR TOWED HOME (AS I WAS THIRTY MILES AWAY) AND DISCOVERED THE ENGINE VALVE IN PISTON #2 HAD BROKEN AND SHATTERED, CAUSING AN ENGINE FAILURE, WITH THE ONLY REPAIR BEING A COMPLETE ENGINE REBUILD OR REPLACEMENT. A CHECK ON-LINE SHOWED THIS IS A COMMON AND RECURRING ISSUE WITH THIS MODEL AND ENGINE TYPE (2006 DODGE CHARGER R/T). I REPORTED THE ISSUE TO DODGE, AND WAS TOLD THERE ARE NO KNOWN ISSUES WITH THE ENGINE OF VALVES, HOWEVER THE DODGE TECHNICIAN AT THE DEALERSHIP SAID IT IS A COMMON PROBLEM AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLED. THE EVIDENCE TO THIS IS THE ENGINE PARTS NEEDED TO FIX THIS (BLOCK, VALVES, ETC.) ARE ON A 2 TO 6 MONTH BACK-ORDER. PLEASE HELP! I CAN NOT AFFORD TO BASICALLY PAY FOR A NEW CAR FOR A KNOWN ISSUE THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED BY THE MANUFACTURER.

AFTER REFUELING VEHICLE, THE ENGINE WOULD STALL EACH TIME THE VEHICLE CAME TO A STOP. THIS HAPPENED FOR SEVERAL MILES. AFTER SEVERAL MILES OF CONTINUOUS DRIVING, THE PROBLEM STOPPED. I'VE READ THIS IS DUE TO A EVAP PROBLEM WITH MY YEAR AND MAKE OF CAR.

I BOUGHT MY 2006 DODGE CHARGER 3.5L V6 NEW IN MAY 2006. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS CAR UNTIL SUMMER OF 2009 JUST AFTER MY WARRANTY EXPIRED, MY GEAR SHIFTER STUCK IN THE PARK POSITION AND HAD TO HAVE IT TOWED. I CALLED DODGE TO SEE IF THERE WAS A RECALL ON THIS PROBLEM AFTER READING ABOUT SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAD SAME ISSUE. WAS TOLD NO, I PAID TO HAVE IT FIXED SOMEWHERE AROUND $450-500. ON MONDAY I HAD TO HAVE MY CAR TOWED BECAUSE IT BROKE DOWN ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK. IT SOUNDED LIKE THE CAR WAS GOING TO EXPLODE LIKE IN A CARTOON. IT WAS MAKING KNOCKING NOISES AND SOUNDED LIKE A DIESEL TRUCK. MECHANIC TOLD ME THAT MY ENGINE WAS SHOT. HOW COULD THIS BE? MY CAR HAS 67,716 MILES ON IT!!! VERY LOW MILEAGE FOR A 2006 VEHICLE. CALLED DODGE AND ASKED IF THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE ENGINE PROBLEM. I READ OF MANY, MANY OTHER PEOPLE HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE. NO RECALL, BUT IF I CAN HAVE IT TOWED TO AN APPROVED DODGE DEALER AND GET A DIAGNOSIS FROM THEIR MECHANIC, CALL BACK. I WAS GIVEN A CLAIM # FROM DODGE HQ. I HAVE AN INSURANCE ADJUSTER GOING OUT TOMORROW MORNING TO ASSESS THE DAMAGE AND THE PROBLEM. I AM FURIOUS! I SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON THIS CAR AND IT SHOULD LAST MORE THAN 67K MILES! UPDATE FROM AUG 5, 2014 UPDATE: 8/5/14 INSURANCE TOLD ME THAT IT IS A KNOWN COMMON ISSUE WITH THE DODGE CHARGER AND BECAUSE OF THIS, THERE ARE NOT MANY RECYCLED ENGINES AVAILABLE OR IF THEY ARE FOUND, IT MIGHT HAVE SAME ISSUE AS MINE DID. ADJUSTER SAID THAT IT WAS A PRESSURE LEAK THAT ONLY HAPPENS WHILE DRIVING CAUSING THE FILTER TO EXPAND AND OIL TO LEAK. MY ENGINE IS BEYOND REPAIR! I CALLED DODGE HQ AGAIN AND WAS TOLD THAT THERE ARE NO RECALLS ON MY VEHICLE AFTER CHECKING MY VIN#. ALSO TOLD ME THEY WILL NOT HELP ME. THEY TOLD ME I CAN FILE A COMPLAINT WITH NHTSA. MEANWHILE I AM TAKING THE BUS. NOT A HAPPY CAMPER!
