    May I get some assistants please. My ‘13 2.4L is leaking from the transmission. I changed the oil a day ago and now there’s a leak from a port under the driver side brake line that I’ve never seen before, should there be a bolt there or something else?

    I can't seem to find any, but the wiki on dodge avengers says that there were 2 models of the late style avengers that came with manual transmissions. A 5 speed Magna and a 6 speed Aisin. I want nothing more than a manual avenger, so if anyone could point me in that direction, I would be...
  9. P R N D 8 all outlined, trunk won't open, limp mode

    Dodge Avenger Mechanical Problems and Questions
    (hope I'm posting in the right spot) When I start my car is the only time I have the issue. All gears in the dash will be outlined including an 8. So, far I'd say this happens about 40-45% of the time at start up. Even more rare (about half the time when the P R N D 8 appears), is in the...

  13. The transmission fluid: change or not to change?

    Dodge Avenger Knowledge Base
    Unfortunately, my avenger was never taken care of like I do. And for some reason, I blindly believed that "hey. Maybe nana and pops did change the tranny fluid." When I asked a few days ago..
