  2. Thermostat Issues

    Dodge Dart General Discussion
    I'm the owner of a 2015 Dart SXT 2.4 L. It has 78k miles on it ( I travel into the city for work) and has not given me any issues until now. I've noticed that when I sit in heavy traffic (Texas summer heat) my temp gauge starts to move up but has never gone up to 3/4. The owner manual doesn't...

  4. Rough Sound When Accelerating

    New Member Introduction
    Hi all, I recently purchased a used 2013 dodge dart ralleye with the 2.0 engine and have been loving the car so far. I have had a few concerns however. I've noticed that when the engine is cold (or rather not warmed up as I'm currently living in Houston), there is a rough noise coming from the...
  5. Weird Hesitation/Thrusting

    Dodge Dart Transmission
    So, my '13 Dart 1.4 6spd is having this issue- When driving, if I am in lower RPM (2200 to approx 3000rpm) the car kinda hesitates/kicks/shudders while also making a noise. To avoid this I now downshift to bring the revs up about 3500 to catch the speed I need to attain. I had an issue with...

    I am looking for advice from anyone with a turbo Dart that may have about driving through high water. What kind of damaged did they have, cost, etc? I had a situation this morning where I had to go through some high water, and it was deeper than I anticipated, perhaps 18 inches at the most...
  8. 3rd Engine In

    Dodge Dart 2.4L Tigershark
    I just had a new 2.4l Tigershark installed in my 2014 Dart GT. This is the cars 3rd engine. Replaced under factory warranty when the chassis had 71000 miles and the 2nd engine had around 30000 miles. This was due to oil consumption. About 1qt low after 600 miles. Anyone else get a new engine...or 2?
  9. Engine lost all power briefly a couple times in a row

    Dodge Dart Mechanical Problems
    Hi all, 2.0L, auto here. When I got in my car yesterday and started driving, the car sputtered/lost all power for a brief second (really it was less than a second) while accelerating and I believe it happened during up-shifting/in between gears, probably from 2nd to 3rd or 3rd to 4th gears...
  10. Dodge Dart engine shut down

    Dodge Dart 2.4L Tigershark
    I've been having horrible issues out of my 2014 Dodge Dart. Long story short the 2.4L engine will burn through oil. Whenever the oil level gets low the engine will shut down, while the vehicle is in motion. I will lose power steering and have to push the vehicle off to the street. It will then...

    Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    I have a 2013 Dodge Dart aero, I was going to replace the air filter when I noticed a quite-a-bit of oil in the airbox above the filter. Is that normal? I took a look at the oil level while I was there and it's almost to the add mark. I just got it back from the dealer from the p0299 code. Is...

    General Automotive Discussion
    So i was wondering how many people here are either members of a different Dart forum or are 1 forum kind of people like me! Ive seen the other forums in searching for things but when i check them out, they seem either really small or kinda poorly designed... Anyone got info on that?
  15. Engine upgrade?

    Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    I had a more heavy idea, probably more suited to racing applications than your daily drivers. Not sure where to put it so moderators feel free to point this in the right direction. I'm not surprised if this idea has already been mentioned before. I read a dart information site
  16. 2.0 vs 1.4 vs 2.4

    Dodge Dart General Discussion
    I was planning on getting a dart in 6-12 months but I now need one ASAP! I'm curious to hear which engine everyone chose, why, and average gas mileage they get. If u have mods please specify as well. I thought I wanted the 1.4 for gas mileage but it seems to be least reliable, also read a...

    Dodge Dart Mechanical Problems
    I have a Dart Rallye 1.4L Multiair Turbo 6-Speed Manual. I bought this car in February this year and never really had any issues with it until recently.
