HARD SHIFTING TRANSMISSION
As your Dodge Charger ages, the parts within the transmission start to wear down. The result tends to be a transmission kicking a little harder between gears than it used to. When you begin to notice these symptoms, we suggest you bring your Charger to us at Fremont Automotive to see if anything significant is happening. Not all transmission slips and kicks are big issues, but fixing a transmission completely becomes more expensive and time-consuming than catching problems early on.
We’ve seen more than a few Dodge Chargers with failing alternators. The first signs are when the battery dies more frequently than normal as the alternator no longer actively charges the vehicle while running.
Regular maintenance with Fremont Automotive helps you get an inspection and regular testing on important parts like the alternator so you can have issues like these fixed on your time instead of waiting for a problem to show up.
A failing thermostat in a Dodge Charger leads to overheating as the vehicle isn’t sure how much and when coolant should be sent around the engine. We’ve commonly seen Dodge Charger owners send their vehicles in on tow trucks to avoid pushing the engine too hard when the thermostat fails.
We at Fremont can test your thermostat and coolant system for any potential signs of upcoming problems. Thermostat issues tend to be a bit alarming to our customers simply because they can result in smoke coming off the engine or the heat gauge on the dashboard doing some funky movements.
WATER PUMP ISSUES
The water pump helps circulate water throughout the engine to keep the temperature down. The Dodge Charger’s water pump tends to fail after a number of years, resulting in the p potential for overheating and leaking. While many Dodge Charger drivers notice a leak in a parking spot, a water pump leak might be more noticeable in your heat gauge because the water isn’t any particular color.
Our mechanics have the easy ability to test your water pump for any faults – and to see if the pump has a leak in it.
Owners of the Dodge Charger have reported issues with the brakes – especially the rear ones, failing or providing uncomfortable stops. Brake issues could come from a couple of sources: faulty hardware attempting to apply the brakes properly and old, worn out hardware like brake pads and rotors. If you start to notice issues with our Dodge Charger braking, we suggest sending it to us at Fremont Automotive and we can inspect your brake systems.
