      Got in bad accident and now Dart has very little power or torque, even after repairs

      I was in an accident where I hit a guy from behind and smashed up my radiator and front...everything. I just got the car back from the collision center ($9,400 worth of repairs) and there is a very noticeable drop in power/torque. I can have my foot to the floor and I still can barely merge onto a freeway. They claim everything is fixed but the check engine light also came on (they are sending someone over to my work today to check the engine light and I will tell him about the power robbing at that time). Also, the transmission is now jerking a little bit at low, low speeds. Does anyone know what might cause the loss of power after having it repaired? Could there be a pressure leak somewhere that we don't know about or do they test for that kind of thing? Thank you for any help, as this is stressful plus it's just generally not safe to drive while there is this lack of power.

      Under boost! Could be a leak. Let us know what the code is.

      It sounds like your intercooler is either busted, or one of the pipes is leaking, or a turbo clamp is loose.

      Oddly, the airbags did NOT deploy. It was a pretty hard hit too.

      What is under boost? Also, I have the AT Rallye, NON-turbo. Also, what code? Most of the work is already done. Now they're just finishing up some stuff that was left behind, like my lack of power now, the MPG reading 45+ and my remote start no longer working.

      Mine isn't turbo, just the regular AT Rallye 2.4L engine. Does my car still have an intercooler or is that a turbo only thing?

      You don't have a 2.4, they aren't out yet. It would be a 2.0 if you are possitive that you don't have a Turbo.

      Take it to your dealer and find out what's wrong with it, then make the repair company fix it.
