    I've had a 2008 Dodge caliber sxt for a year now. It has always sounded like a RC car when accelerating. ONLY when accelerating. Doesn't make the sound in neutral btw. I read posts that say this is a normal sound for cvt cars so I just want to ask does anyone else's caliber sound like an rc car...
  2. Dodge Caliber Mechanical Problems and Questions
    So I am having this issue where when I use the cruise control lever to accelerate from 50-70 mph or in that ballpark my rpms shoot way up like the transmission isn't even engaging. But then when I turn cruise control off and ease into the gas, it feels fine. I have always kind of released the...

    A friend took their very nice Caliber to a dealer shop and mechanic to investigate a noise transmission was making. Both said that the CVT needed to be replaced and estimated about $3-5k. I didn't talk to the dealer or mechanic so I didn't get to ask any questions of them but they didn't...

    2008 Dodge Caliber SE 2.0L Jatco JF011E My Caliber has been making a whining noise for a long time upon any amount of acceleration or decelerations.

    Hello everyone! Using a lot of really useful info available on this forum, I decided to go for a fluid change on my transmission. My car's a 2010 SXT with a little over 109k on it now. I've had the CVT whine and the overheating issue in the past but I've babied the pedal and it's been a...
  7. Dodge Caliber Mechanical Problems and Questions
    Hi to everyone, I'm new to the forum. We have just purchased a Caliber 2007 SXT beautiful car with a mechanical issue. It starts OK, and apparently maintains a correct idle speed, but once lever changes to "D", a noticeably vibration shakes the car. This vibration stops when accelerating. Any...

    2007 Caliber AWD. I used the pre-requisite oil at the 106K mileage. Shifts fine but almost feels like it downshifts when coasting to a stop. Even though there is/was the friction modifier in the fluid, would adding some Mopar Hypoid fluid help at all, or hurt? THX.

    So I have an 07 Caliber which has a stalling problem. It never stalls out completely, but it sputters and I lose power. It happens when I am accelerating or maintaining speed, but does not seem to when idling. It also typically will not happen until the car has warmed up. It is also not throwing...

    So I bought my 2008 caliber two months ago. It has a steadily worse grinding and whining noise only while accelerating that the dealership said is likely the cvt transmission. I purchased a powertrain warranty "through mazda". However the policy states it only covers up to the trade in value of...

I'll likely...

    I know there has been a ton of whirring posts with many different possibilities as for the fix, but some of the other posts have confused me. My whirring started about a month ago (shortly after I had an oil change done). The whirring does not happen when idiling, it only starts around 20 mph...

    Does anyone feel like their transmission is dragging on lower gears, almost as if the brakes are being applied ever so slightly? Kind of like the transmission downshifted prematurely.:smiledown:
