if you have an engine code reader itd be helpful to know the code


advanced auto parts did an obd-ii and the code was P2175....something about a fuel-air flow problem???


sounds like a dirty throttle body, my moms 07 hemi durango threw the same code all i did was pick up a can of napa carb and throttlebody cleaner and pull the throttlebody off and clean it up, then i reset the code hasnt come back since
