  1. 1st Gen V6 Forum (2.7L & 3.5L)
    Runs great under normal driving conditions. When I feel spirited and/or pissed I smash the pedal and just as rpms get above say 5000 I get the stutter so I back off a little to allow the next gear to hit stutter goes away. Well, until the next gear tops out then the stutter happens again...
  2. Power Adders
    Hey guys, my new blower and I have been getting acquainted nicely. I was just curious how the car should idle with a supercharger on it. Stationary in drive I get about a 50rpm up and down. Stationary in park it gets a bit odd. It bounces maybe 100-200rpm at a pretty consistent rate. I still...
  3. Magnum General Discussion (2005 - 2008)
    Hey guys looking for some direction here. My cousin purchased a 2007 dodge magnum with the 3.5L 123,xxx miles. shortly after purchase the rpms at idle will drop real low around 580-610 and the engine will shake the car. There is no Check engine light but the car does have codes. I believe the...
  4. 300 General Discussion (1st Gen - 2005 to 2010)
    So far that's the code I have got and rough engine idle, also bearing noise when putting ear to oil pan. Any thoughts? 5.7l
  5. Transmissions Gears & Diffs
    Looking to change to an FTI converter part #83200. Any other recommendations? Should I have it custom built or off the shelf? Not looking to change anything else in the combo. Best run 1.90 60 ft 12.80 @ 112 on drag radials. Does everyone power brake or leave off idle for the best results? Thanks!
  6. General LX Discussion (1st Gen - 2005 to 2010)
    So my daughter's car overheated this evening. Gauge went all the way to hot, and coolant shot out the overflow. By the time I got to where she was, it had cooled down enough to put a jug of antifreeze in it. Had her start is back up so I could watch it, let it idle for a good 30 minutes, and...
  7. Charger Discussion (3rd Gen - 2015 +)
    So I'm sure we're all familiar with the nice grunt/bark of a remote or cold start on a (newer) 5.7 or a 6.4 with the active exhaust. It starts up at like 1,200-1,500 RPM with a nice bark and then slowly settles down to idle. This was always consistent on my '18 5.7 and WAS on my '19 6.4. Then...
  8. General LX Discussion (1st Gen - 2005 to 2010)
    Or a shimmy or shake? Been like this since I got the car, just changed the plugs earlier today and it’s still there. It’s not enough of a miss to set the engine light off so it kind of has me stumped, could it be cool packs? Or injectors? Trying to figure it out so it has a smooth idle. The #6...
  9. 300C, Magnum RT & Charger RT (5.7L V8)
    So I’ve done a ton of research and there are soo many things to fail or need replaced, so looking for some help. The Problem: I have to give it a little gas right after cranking for it to stay running, or the rpms will go up then back down and shut it off. After starting its fine at idle...
  10. Challenger Discussion (2008 to 2014)
    I've developed what seems to be a slight miss at idle and alot of ST knock, 1-5. No misfire codes, but misfire counts on the T2 during start up only. Its e force supercharged so I'm a bit worried I may have an internal or fuel issue. Compression test performed cold, wot, 1 plug pulled from each...
  11. Charger Discussion (3rd Gen - 2015 +)
    I've been noticing an odd issue that seems to becoming more prevalent. My car usually idles in drive around 650-750rpm I'm guessing (I'll confirm with the digital readout later). I came to a stop at light the other week and idle dipped noticeably down to about 550 or a bit lower rpm. It didn't...
  12. Magnum General Discussion (2005 - 2008)
    Been noticing this going on with my Magnum lately. Idle RPM varying up to 100rpm at times. Didn't go that far in this video clip, but you get the idea. (ignore the trans temp gauge on my stereo. it doesn't read properly for some reason). Magnum Idle - YouTube Anything to worry about or is...
  13. 300C, Magnum RT & Charger RT (5.7L V8)
    I have an 2005 Magnum R/T that my valve seals are warn. (smokes a little after sitting at idle for like 30-45 minutes). Im looking for a set of heads to get rebuilt to install. Im mainly seeing truck heads in my area and I was wondering do they flow any better. I know they are none EGR. My over...
  14. Engine / Intake / Exhaust / Performance
    Is it a direct replacement? I have a single and the SRT is a dual. Looking for other options as well. 6.4 has been running hotter than the 5.7 before it into the 230 at idle. May have to purge system again and get a different 180 stat, mine may have failed already.
  15. Magnum General Discussion (2005 - 2008)
    This just started last night. Very strange behaviour. Had just filled up so was thinking maybe the gas tank issue under the TSB but have never had the tank replaced and never any symptoms like this previously. I pull up to a light to turn left, I wait for the car in front to go and when it's...
  16. 300C, Magnum RT & Charger RT (5.7L V8)
    Hello all. 2010 Chrysler 300S Long tube headers, full 3" exhaust with high flow cats Comp 274 Phaser Cam Tuned with an exhaust leak stock converter After we got the exhaust leak fixed, it seems I can't always come to a stop with it in drive, or else it surges and gives itself throttle to not...
  17. The SRT-8 (6.1L and 6.4L V8)
    I'm at 285k, these lifters fail between 125-150k on my mostly stock 6.1. This car never gets hot, it is a freeway hauler and is not abused. My theory now is that they don't get enough oil pressure to lube the roller when the engine is warmed up and at sitting at 700rpm idle. I'm at 19lbs oil...
  18. 300C, Magnum RT & Charger RT (5.7L V8)
    Car background: 2009 police charger 5.7 With 140k miles. It had been sitting for 3+ years prior to me buying it 2 weeks ago. I performed an oil change and coolant flush prior to daily driving it. Ran a tank of fuel system cleaner day 1. Issue: when accelerating onto the freeway Sunday it threw...
  19. Challenger Discussion (2015 + )
    So every morning I turn on my car or anytime I do at idle u could hear these loud popping noise sorta sounds like gun shots going off lol but can’t see anything loose under or anything what can it be ?
  20. 300C, Magnum RT & Charger RT (5.7L V8)
    So lately Ive noticed that after Ive been driving awhile and I've stopped at an intersection, the idle in drive is down around the 500 mark. Its a steady idle, nothing rough about it, everything works perfect. It never idles that low in neutral or park. When I see it drop down to 500rpm I can...
