Caliber 4-cyl

  • 53,000 miles


My 2010 Dodge Caliber has started this sputtering thing. I indicated several problems because I just don't know what the problem is. Sometimes it hesitates to start and I have noticed that intermittently it has sort of jerked, but today, it just sputtered and tried to shut down in the middle of an intersection as I was turning into oncoming traffic. Although I have owned this vehicle for a little over 3 years, the mileage is only 53,000 miles. I am old and disabled. I don't know what I would have done if I had to walk. It acts like it is either a problem with the transmission or that the electrical system is trying to shut it down. I am not sure. Before I go putting fuel injector cleaner in it or, try doing anything on my own, I need some answers. Also it isn't even paid for yet! it was a "program" vehicle before I bought it. However the issues that have been going on with the sputtering started about Jan. 2014. I never have received notice of any recalls but I am about to take it to the Dodge dealer and find out what is going on. I am very disappointed that this is going on. I am old and need my vehicle to complete every day tasks. I also don't go anywhere very often and don't know where to take my vehicle because of the money hungry mechanics that are kind of shady out there, and I don't know what to do about this. I read numerous reviews on here and I do think I may be having the same issue of many regarding the transmission, hesitation, and seems to be trying to shut down on me in the most unlikely places, light coming on and system shutting down and trying to stall. Someone needs to do something about this immediately!

While pulling into traffic from a parking lot, the car would not accelerate, despite my best attempts, finally after several seconds of coasting and the pedal pushed all the way down, the vehicle jumped into acceleration. During this incident, the check engine light came on. I promptly took it to the dealer, who ran the code and it said P0455 large evac leak. The dealer ran the esim test and vac test with no results. They told me that I probably had a loose gas cap. I had not been at the gas station in days. Also, when the gas cap is loose, an error abbreviation for gas cap shows up in the mileage readout and does not come back on after the cap is tightened. I have never had the incident described above occur because of a loose gas cap. No further work or diagnosis was done on the vehicle.

While driving vehicle in the rain on the highway at about 45 miles per hour in rush-hour traffic, the car began to jerk this lasted for several seconds before the car completely stalled. It restarted immediately. Took to dealer who test drove and found no issues or codes.
