#129 of 148 2008 Dodge Avenger Stalling Out
Apr 05, 2011 (12:19 pm)
Hi . My 19 year old son is having the same stalling problems when coming to a stop or when stopped. Called Chrysler Canada and told me to take it to dealership, they did the scope said nothing wrong and sent him on his way, other than trying to get him to do a tune up and air induction service. Took the car to my machanic and had a tune up and throttle body cleaning altho was told that would not fix the problem. It didn't. Called Car help Canada and they said if was a safety issue and to call Transport Canada defect investigation department. They made a report but had no answers. Called Crysler Canada again this afternoon and got no help whatso ever again. When there are no codes showing how can my son get them to check these things you are speaking of or replace them without it costing him alot of money. He drives every day on the highway to get to college and of course with toronto traffic he has to come to stops that then make his car stall. It is quite worrisome knowing someone could rear end him pretty badly. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks kindly

I have a 95 Avenger i didnt even have it for a month yet and just like you's my car did the exact same thing.... like today i took it to my second inspection and i got to the place the guy hopes in and it doesn't start up.....i go over and hop in and it seems to me like it took 15 minutes to get it started...then after my inspection was done it shut off on me on one of the busiest highways, thank god it only took a couple of seconds to get it re-start.....then it does it again goin down the interstate i put the car in Neutral turn the key and it fires back up......what is a person to do when he is on a budget?

I changed the crank shaft position sensor and did NOT notice any difference. I changed the ASD relay with the fuel pump relay thinking if it was the relay there would be a change in symptoms. For a few days after it ran fine and did not quit, then it started again however its not as predominant as before. I run with the idea that I dont give up on my car, it gives up on me. Not knowing when that is I dont sink much $ into it. I would suggest replacing the ASD relay its like $20-$30 for a new one, I saw someplace that you can get the same type of relay from Radioshack cheaper you just have to mount it yourself. Good Luck

I have a 2008 Dodge Avenger my fuel pump went out in June paid over 1200 for it and it just went out today. Obviously something is wrong and there needs to be a recall cause these idiots did something wrong

My son's 1995 dodge avenger would run perfectly fine for roughly 20 mins. and stall out without warning at a stop light or sign. Motor will crank with lots of power, but no fire. Let the car sit for 1 to 2 hours and the car starts fine, until you drive it for the 20 mins. or so. Took car to the dealership and they changed the computer and so far no stalling out. (computer $400 + labour)

My 97 Avenger had been stalling at idle for over a year. Then it was stalling and not starting back up. I had the crank sensor replaced and it seemed to put an end the stalling. But it still won't start most of the time until I tap on the Auto Shutdown Relay.
The Dodge dealership wants $60 for one! I ordered one online for $10. It's an exact replacement of what's in there already, which is not a dealer part ...... this must have happened before with the previous owner. The ASD relay is a Zettler AZ973-1C-12DC1R1.
#136 of 148 98 Avenger stalling too
Dec 01, 2011 (1:02 pm)
I've got the same problem with my car stalling, I haven't narrowed it down to anything specific when I'm driving other than it occasionally shifts hard between 2nd and 3rd (its an automatic). Usually it happens when I'm on the freeway and I've just been putting it into neutral and then turning off the ignition and restarting it. Kinda freaky when your driving at 70mph. Anyways, I've done some digging and it sounds like a lot of vehicles are having this problem ... Avenger engines are mitsubishi made and a lot of foregone cars are stalling out too. It sounds like the crankshaft position sensor is the culprit with mine at least. We have plugged it into a scanner and it didn't throw any codes either. I'll have the sensor changed this week and update you guys on the progress.
#137 of 148 avenger is sruggling

I have a 99 Dodge avenger sport v6. It will crank but has a rough idle and if I turn on the AC it boogs down and jerks. If you feather the gas pedal it will idle up but if you press it to hard it bogs down all the way and wants to die. It started doing the rough idle while I was at Mcdonalds drive through it through a check engine light but then it goes off. I'm scared to drive it because of having to pull out on a hwy because it won't go unless you hit the gas just right. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
