  1. Dart transmission questions

    Dodge Dart Builds
    So I’m planning on buying a Dart with the 2.4 and auto, my question is would I need to upgrade the trans to handle more power. I’ve read that the Powertech trans is pretty much already close to its torque limit.

    Hi all, As many people have figured out over the years, the DDCT on the Darts have had problems. My girlfriend owns a 2013 1.4l Turbo with the DDCT.

  4. Possible bad transmission

    Dodge Dart General Discussion
    There is a humming noise coming from the engine bay when my car is going at high speeds; the noise goes away after a complete stop. My mechanic and I thought that the noise was the result of a bad wheel bearing and had it replaced just today, the problem is that the noise is still there and now...

    Dodge Dart General Discussion
    Good afternoon I just now joined this forum because I want help. I need help identifying the transmission under my 1964 Dodge dart 270. I was given this car by one of my friends and the only big problem I was aware of is a big ol' crack in the transmission extension housing. I think the...

  9. 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...
  10. RPM Dropping

    Dodge Dart Transmission
    This might not be specific to the automatic transmission (i.e. could be engine issue), but in the morning when I start the car and throw it into reverse, the RPM drops pretty dang low. I'm used to driving a manual, so dropping that low gives me that uneasy too little clutch not enough gas...
  11. Dual Dry Clutch Transmissions

    Dodge Dart Transmission
    Does your Dart have the dual dry clutch transmission (DDCT)? Have you been having problems that don't necessarily appear to be obvious transmission problems?

  12. 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...
