  1. Dodge Dart General Discussion
    My dipstick handle snapped off when I was removing the airbox. I haven't been able to get it out but removing the tube itself looks like the simplest solution...there's just a mounting bolt holding it in place (link to part on mopar store). Is it that simple? Will oil leak out?
  2. Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    New to the group and looking for some help - I recently bought a project 2014 1.4L 6 speed with 130k miles. When buying the car it had quite a few oil leaks: oil drain plug threads were AWOL, O-ring was leaking from oil separator, and I thought this was it. I recently replaced both the oil...

    My 2015 dodge dart aero 1.4 turbo (Amelia) normally will go into a limp mode when a coil fails so I change the spark plug and coil it fixes it.. well this time I decided to change all coils and spark plugs at once and it still is running in a limp mode loss of power and vibration I looked and...
  4. Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    Hello, I have a 2013 Dodge Dart sxt 1.4L engine.Car calls for 5w40 oil. On my last oil change they put in 0w20. Approx 20 days after the oil was changed my car started idling rough, CEL came on and was found to have only 38 PSI compression in cylinder 1. I currently have an appointment coming...
  5. Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    Hey, I have 2013 dart, sxt 1.4L. In works of replacing the oil filter cap. I order one through dealership and went to instal and it’s a different style and 50 thousandths too big in diameter. Ordered another one in hopes it wasn’t from some sort of mix up with packaging but still the same story...
  6. Dodge Dart General Discussion
    2013 2.0L SE auto, ~110k I changed the spark plugs a few weeks ago and had some extraneous fluids on top of the valve cover, outside the wells (as pictured, though I've cleaned them up some). Figured it wasn't an issue. Today I was switching my coils and now there is some residue and fluid...
  7. Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    Well, it's been more than a few years since I was on here. In that time I've done more mods and maintenance than I can recall. That said, My car has been misfiring and I bought new plugs and coil packs because, well frankly I'm due for plugs and I picked up the Ignition Projects Performance...
  8. Dodge Dart Mechanical Problems
    Hey everyone, I had created a thread previously about oil on my spark plug but can’t seem to fix it. My second cylinder kept having a misfire, so I had changed my tube seals, my valve cover seals, my pcv valve, as well as all spark plugs and one ignition coil. After a couple weeks my second...
  9. Dodge Dart General Discussion
    Just curious as to why the 1.4T can only use 5W-40 oil? I've never owned a car with a turbo before and it seemed strange that i didn't have an option to use one or two other types. Sorry if this has been asked or mentioned before, just don't want to break anything by using the wrong fluids. TIA...
  10. Dodge Dart Maintenance
    I emailed Chrysler to get it in writing from them which oils they have approved for use in the 1.4, this is their reply. I know there are a ton of threads, but you really have to read through and into them to get the actual info. Thank you for contacting the Dodge Customer Assistance Center...
  11. Dodge Dart General Discussion
    I'm hearing/reading awful rumors about the high cost of oil and filters for the darts - both 2.0 and 1.4 - anyone have any real world experience yet? - I'm waiting on my order (placed 4/1).
  12. Dodge Dart General Discussion
    So, my very first post was about the CEL being on before we even had delivery of the car.. well today I was driving to work the same way I always do and the CEL came back on. I called the dealership, which is 35 mins away, and the earliest they can see me is Wed. I was told to check the gas cap...
  13. Dodge Dart General Discussion
    I had my oil changed at a friend's mechanic place (non dealership) at approx. 4k miles, now I am at 5.5k miles and I started my Dart last night and it chimed and "Oil Change Due" popped up on my dash...I don't need an oil change now, is there a way to reset this? does anyone know?

    Vote for which oil you think is best for our Dart 1.4L Turbos! Both oils I listed meet the chrysler spec for the dart, if you know of any others please post. Please tell us why you choose that oil and/or what oil you are using now.
  15. Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo
    I looked through the forum (at least the 1.4L section) for a little more information on the cartridge filter for the 1.4L and didn't find anything but a few threads on oil. I imagine I can go to the dealer and pic one up in the parts department but I'm looking on Amazon right now. Is the Fiat...
