    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum. Looks like a great community and I can't wait to get into it! Anyway, I did my first oil change last weekend and it was more difficult than I thought. I didn't see much information on the R/T oil change, so I figured I'd start a thread where others could share...

    Ok this is the whole story. 2 years ago I purchased my 07 charger at Huntington Beach Dodge. It had just over 100k. I decided to purchase the mopar extended warranty too, especially because I could tell that it had been overheated at least once as evidenced by a drip burn on the paint near the...

    Hi guys, I was changing the oil in my brother's 2014 r/t and noticed an oil leak where the intake manifold and head meet on the left side. I tried to trace the leak back to the valve cover but it didn't seem to be the culprit. I noticed a tube clipped to the trans dipstick that appeared to be...

    Gents, I enjoy changing my own oil, and was curious if there was anyone here that might have a couple of the mopar oil change reminder static-clings that are usually placed in the upper left of the windshield. They've been sold on ebay in the past, and look like the ones attached. I went on...
  7. Charger Problems/Assistance (2011 +)
    I just bought a 2013 Charger SE. I pulled the oil dipstick on it and it has NO markings. It has a single bend a few inches from the bottom that (i suspect) is the "full" mark. However, there is NO notch/hole/wording for an "add" indication. Any ideas??? Sorry if this seems ignorant. I...

    So I see people talk about BT oil catch cans, or just people talking about oil catch cans and I'm wondering what exactly do they do? kind of a dumb question I'm sure but I am just wondering their exact use?

    I have a 2006 Charger R/T I had my engine oil light start coming on intermittently (when going slow or idling) and my check engine light is on. I did the key dance to see it is throwing a P0520 code which seems related to oil pressure sensor. I checked my oil and topped it off just to be...

    I'm glad to be putting one of these cars back on the road! My wife mentioned the Charger while car-shopping and that's when we stuck to the Charger until I found the right one. This thing is loaded and awesome! A few questions: What's the true "owner-tested" MPG (City/Hwy) on the 06 R/T? I've...
