Hey everyone,
After starting up my 2013 SXT the other day, I threw it in reverse (automatic trans), it attempted to engage, then stalled. This was on a rather cold morning. It's the first time this has happened, but I've noticed for a while that when I first start the car and put it in drive or reverse, it takes a second or two to engage, and during so the RPM temporary drops a bit. This delay only happens the first time or so during a drive - after things have warmed up the change is instant.

Is this abnormal behavior? Feels stupid to ask about stalling in a 2013 automatic. I had just had the transmission replaced a few weeks ago too, so.. :pillepalle:

Help is appreciated!

Hi Tyler Ritchie,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit your local dealership I'd be happy to follow up with them for you if needed. Just PM our page and let me know.

Awesome to see official dodge in here showing support!

I would suggest taking it to a dealer or shop as stalling in cold weather is not typically an expected thing now a days. Maybe the timing needs to be advanced?

This is not normal. You live in Virginia, so it's not like we are talking about 20 below zero temps here.

You mentioned you just had the transmission replaced, and I'll say there is where your problem is.
