    Angry 2015 2.4L Multi Air Engine Vibrations!


    This has been so frustrating, but I purchased the vehicle used with 39k miles on it. It has been 1 1/2 months and I have put 1500 miles on it and everything was running extremely smoothly. I get in the vehicle after work and turn it on and I noticed a slight vibration in the engine when idle. that I could feel in the steering wheel. I did not think too much of it initially but as I began driving it more over the next few days I just couldn't ignore it any longer. I took it into the Chrysler dealership and they had it for a week and FINALLY called me back in only to tell me it needed a TCM update..I take it and drive it home and the vibrations have gotten much worse during idle, during acceleration and in reverse. I know it is in the engine because it gets increasingly worse as the engine warms up and I am in drive but stopped. So much so that the plastic in the interior is vibrating so much it makes an extremely annoying clicking noise. I can't stand it, hopefully some of you folks can give me some suggestions! Please help, the dealership has told me that unless it pops a code there is absolutely nothing they can do which I somewhat agree with but there are components not attached to sensors in the powertrain and if something goes wrong with that how the **** am I supposed to have it covered under warranty coverage??

    I know at GM dealerships they employ vibration meters for this kind of problem. You may want to call back and ask if they will perform this.

    Really you know what you need to do... you need to go back and talk with the service manager or writer about next steps.

    My guess is the motor mounts should be inspected. Keep in mind that those probably are not covered under the powertrain warranty. The dealership was probably trying to do you a favor by billing Chrysler for the TCM update.

    Hi randymagnum,
    I’m sorry to hear about the concern with your 200! I can certainly delve in a bit further on my end and follow up with your dealership if you’ll be scheduling another appointment to have them look at the vehicle again. Just shoot me a PM with your VIN if I can help.

    Greetings,

    Check your maintenance schedule for a 2.4 engine. My (2012 Avenger 2.4) requires a new set of plugs at 32K/miles and at 64K/ish also.

    For some goofy reason this engine needs fresh plugs every 30K/miles or so. Check out the DIY on U tube or wherever, its soooooo easy to change the plugs Also you need to determine if you have a 2.4 PZEV (partial zero emission vehicle) or not. (call a dealer with your VIN) The reason is, there are two VERY DIFFERENT spark plugs for each engine along with different recommended spark plug gaps. After that, change your plugs on a nice Saturday afternoon. Oh yea, the dealer near me wanted $139.00 just to change (4) spark plugs.......NOTTTTTT!!!!



    This "should" cut down your vibration problem........

    Hope this helps....
