2009 Dodge Journey 2.4L hesitating and stalling

Asked by Jun 24, 2015 at 09:07 PM about the 2009 Dodge Journey SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 Dodge Journey 2.4L with 112K miles. Three days ago it started
hesitating and stalling out of nowhere. Popped the hood and had a vacuum leak
coming off the brake booster. I ran the codes and I had a random misfire code,
crankshaft positioning sensor code, and an engine oil temperature sensor high circuit
code. I replaced the spark plugs and the crankshaft sensor and fixed the vacuum leak.
Reran the codes and now I only have the engine oil temperature sensor code now.
After talking to 4 dealerships and 2 parts stores, I finally got the temp sensor and
replaced it. However it is still throwing the code and it is still hesitating but not stalling
out this time. I am kind of at a loss, could the temp sensor be causing all the
hesitation or am I overlooking something? Thanks in advance.

Check air filter

air filter is brand new

Maybe a bad or dirty fuel injector or injectors. Try adding some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank.

Temperature sensor would not cause hesitation.

Have you ever had the throttle body cleaned ?

Car belongs to my elderly grandmother..I threw some cleaner in the gas and took it out on the highway and ran the heck out of it which she never does. She mainly does in town driving nothing over 50mph. That seemed to do the trick. Thanks for your help. Now I'm waiting for a new pigtail for the oil temp sensor to see if the code will clear.
