Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 Dodge caliber and it starts and then motor dies.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Hi Moose! Yes lights turn on and battery has a good charge

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Caliber yourself? What have you tried so far?

We are trying to repair/diagnose problem on our own - checked battery, did add oil because when tow driver towed it home he mentioned it may be low on oil - it does have gas

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Was running and just shut off on it's own -- we are in Ohio and temp is in 40's

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
