Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that could cause the engine to die. You may have lost spark, fuel or both. There area number of reasons that spark or fuel could be lost and it will take some testing to determine what is going on.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is using a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting in the powertrain control module. Any problem causing a loss of spark would set a fault code and that would give a starting point for testing.

Have you checked for codes?

Under the hood it's very loud I can start it but it will stall out . It sounds like a pick up truck . When I press on the gas the noise gets louder

Are you hearing a loud exhaust leak from the engine compartment that started suddenly?

I was driving it . The car stalled out my car turned completely off everything stoped working including the steering wheel I turned it back on and it has a loud noise comming from under the hood . I just had a oil change last Friday . Could this possibly be engine failure
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Without at least hearing the noise I couldn't say for sure if the engine has failed but I suspect you may be hearing an exhaust leak from a broken EGR valve. Are you able to upload a recording or video of the noise?

What is a EGRA VALVE ?and. At the moment I am at work I send a video of what it does sound like that I found online
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
EGR valve

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Where is that valve located in the front of the car ?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The EGR valve is mounted to the back of the right cylinder head and allows exhaust to flow back into the intake but if the engine is knocking like the one in the video then that does indicate internal failure. The vehicle in the video has a failed rod bearing.

My car is just loud like that . If u suspect it's the EGR valve is that expensive to fix ?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It does not knock it's just loud sounds like a pick up truck
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

If it just sounds loud then it may very well be the EGR valve. They will sometimes blow apart and cause a large, sudden exhaust leak. The EGR valve can also cause the engine to die at idle or low speeds. Replacing the EGR valve would run $2-250.

Thank you for your help I really appreciate it honestly I was thinking it was my tranny or engine . I know. Nothing about cars . So would that price be for the part and to replace it or just the part
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

That price would be parts and labor. The price will vary depending on where replacement parts come from and the labor rate of the shop doing the work.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay so that's not to bad . Should the EGR valve cause it to stall and the car basically turn off ?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

It's not uncommon for a bad EGR valve to cause the engine to die at idle or low speeds.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it was idling as well but it was not over heating
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I couldn't drive it cause it kept stalling out and was to loud I was scared and had it towed
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

If the EGR valve allows flow at idle or low engine speeds it will cause the engine to die as the engine can't tolerate EGR flow at low speeds.

When I was driving it too i would press on the gas and it wouldn't move I would put my foot to the group and it would jump and then drive
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

That sounds like the transmission disengaging due to low fluid level.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
what would that cause ? Something major.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

If left unrepaired? It could do transmission damage.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
that could be causing the loud noise
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

No, that's a separate problem. The transmission slipping is not related to the noise or engine dying.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Oh so it could be my transmission slipping that when I put my foot In the gas it will stop then when I put it to the floor it jumps then goes to drive fine . Ugh I should just get a new car
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, that's the transmission disengaging.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
either way it's not good right
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The transmission problem may just be due to a leak and the fluid not being topped off.

A bad EGR valve or transmission leak isn't uncommon.

Makes since now I have a new EGR valve too cause my engine light was one and the code read that and I just bought it so it may be that the part wasn't expensive
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

If you had an EGR code already then it definitely needs to be replaced.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have it just got it not to long ago but I work so much so had no time to have it put in . Would this be causing the noise too
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, the EGR valve can fail and cause an exhaust leak.

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Well that could be it then and I have the part just have to have someone put it in . Would I need a new exhaust? I'm just worried about the. Noise it's making and the stalling out
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

You'd only need to replace exhaust components if they have failed. That would need to be inspected by someone in person.
