Dodge Charger-engine shuts down while driving

Asked by Jul 23, 2018 at 03:49 PM about the 2010 Dodge Charger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My friend has a 2010 Dodge Charger that she bought used last year. She was
driving it at the end of May when the engine just quit on her and she was able
to coast it into a parking lot. She tried restarting it to no avail. Had it towed to
her mechanic, where is has been sitting for two months. The mechanic is
finally throwing his hands up in defeat. It is making a very loud noise deep
inside the engine, but when my husband test drove it on the road the other
day, it just shut down again, about a 1/2 mile down the road from the shop.
Any clue what the issue could be? Could it be an electrical issue?

When it wont start see the vehicle is losing spark when cranking it over... this is a chrysler and their kinda known for cam/crank sensor issues and the asd relay cuttin out which cuts power to the injectors and the coil if the computer isnt receiving an rpm signal


Some vehicles can run out a cam sensor, some can run without a crank sensor, some need both... depends on how the pcm is coded... cam/crank sensors will tend to fail when hot then when cool down theyll start working again
