Asked by Feb 08, 2015 at 12:57 PM about the 2010 Dodge Charger R/T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My charger rt when driving between 25 and 35 MPH, the MDS kicks on at 25 and I hear a sound that sounds like someone is spinning a carnival wheel, or baseball cards in a kid's bike spokes......the dealer replaced the MDS solenoids, but it still makes that loud sound at low speeds when the MDS kicks on.

Have you been running only 5W-20 oil in it? Everyone says if anything other than that, it will screw up your MDS.

do you know if the P01 recall was done or applies to your vehicle???...the only other thing is either you have a small leak in one of the cylinders that is shut off or one of the MDS lifters is broken and making noise ...if you use the wrong grade oil it will set a code for it and turn the light on

Oil is fine, they did a trans diagnostic ,installed new mds solenoids, but at low speeds when in mds mode, still get that sound outside the car. when I drive with windows down and drive down a street with close buildings at 25 mph, you can hear the spinning sound bounce back at you. sounds like spinning the prize wheel at a carnival. The dealer said We put new MDS in it, and wire harness, all Hemi engines make a sound when they are at low speeds and the mds kicks on, just drive it and if a light goes off, then we will know for sure

@Mike weed I have the exact same problem with my 2011 dodge charger rt it sounds like a rattler toy when my foot is off the gas and eco or mds kicks in..I don't have any lights on my dash..I was wondering if any one has found the solution to the problem. If so what may be the cost to fix it

I found after a year of working with my dealership, it is a recall on your timing belt, the clicking your hearing is the timing chain guides and the chain rattling through them. Check online to see if your year is on the timing chain recall. There is also an airbag recall.
