Asked by Aug 05, 2013 at 11:43 AM about the 2008 Dodge Charger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello! I have a 2008 Dodge Charger and My check engine light came on and the
dealership said it was my 02 sensors....those were replaced but the engine light came
back on.  I never had any problems with the way it runs or anything. I take it to Aamco
so they could check the codes and they got the same reading .....lower bank 2
sensor....I don't remember the code. They suggest I drive it to see if it goes off....(the
engine light) It doesn't and I take it back and now it's throwing codes for intake manifold
and all this other crap. They suggest they do change the com to see if that works....any
suggestions....I can't register my car because it won't pass emissions

An O2 code can be related to other issues, not just the O2 sensor. Things such as a vacuum leak or other sensor. I'd haye to have you replace the sensor and that wasn't the issue. Have someone else look at the car who will diagnose it vs just reading a code.

Hello...yes I did have some luck..let me tell you... So I joined a Dodge Charger forum and looked for people who had similar issues...a guy told me that I would get the run around and be told to replace my intake manifold. He also advised me not to do that. I did allow Aamco to reset my computer which was $700 and that cleared all codes except the original code it keptciming up with. My husband changed the sensors (very easy). Then I read on the Dodge forum that sometimes the shortrunner gets clogged and all I may need is carborater cleaner...so my husband bought a $6 can of berrymans carburetor cleaner and sprayed the doors or solenoids on the short runner which was full of gunk. I drove it and it cleared all codes and my engine light went off and it passed emissions! !!

The shop wanted to just replace the entire part...they kept lying saying the plates were broken.....BS my car couldn't have driven if that were true..they eanted1,700.00 additional after resetting my computer!! This is just what the guy on Dodge forum's website told me they would try!!!!

Hi there sheliame Thanks for your post. I am having similar issues and I am very interested In knowing in more details what you did to fix it. I am sorry to say that your explanation was not very clear. The carburetor cleaner is normally a liquid you put in you gas thank! What doors did he actually spray?

Hi there! You can email me. New cars don't have carburetors...they have short runners but they do the same thing....the carburetor cleaner comes in a spray....."Berrymans Carburetor Cleaner". You csn also call me this evening after7pm EST and my husband will give u step by step directions. In newer cars such as ours you pour carburetor cleaner in the gas tank but in older cars (my husband owns a couple classics from1972 and 1974...), spray was used and still is......
