    Need help bad

    With all the work to expose the plugs on the 3.6L, change them all. It would cost an extra $30, but save you a day of work. And, depending on what was wrong with the plug in the first place (assuming the issue was with the plug and not something else), the rest may not be far behind.

    A little helpful hint for those who seem to have issues even after replacing the bulbs . So I replaced the bulb several times in my back left reverse tail light with no success. On the rear door on the upper left hinge there is a cased wiring which feeds the back door panel. Pull back on the protective casing and look at wiring. In my case there where 4 wires broken . These wires are colour coded and should be easy to strip back and add a splice in. Hope this helps people save money. Not the most attractive fix but efficient.

    Emblem Delete easy DYI

    you made it sound hard and expensive to remove the emblems... i used bumper sticker remover from autozone and just sprayed it on and let it set a minute then used my fingernail to lift the edge of the emblem and then sprayed a little more of the spray and slowly removed the emblem then wiped it clean ..done ...easy peasy no heat gun no fishing wire no decal eraser or power drill

    2010 Journey Starting issues

    The reality is that we can all try to guess what the problem could be. If it isn't a common issue, which this does not seem to be, every guess could be wrong and ultimately costly. Even with a replaced alternator, the 'new' alternator could still be the issue. If you can get it running with a jump, there is basically a drain somewhere. Best bet is to take it to an electrical specialty shop and let them use their expensive equipment to find the issue for you. If they are wrong, they will need to try again on their dime. Even if you pay for a diagnosis and do the work yourself, you will still save a very valuable amount of time (and headache). Electrical issues are not like getting a flat tire. You'll never have to guess which tire to replace. Electrical, try and figure out which wire or 50+ electrical component is causing the issue. If you've tested the basics, hand out over to an expert. Good luck.

    Oil Filter Advice Needed

    Use the Mopar filter for the 3.6 - there is nothing to be gained from using an aftermarket filter. For my 2.4, I use the Purolator Boss PBL12222 (hey, I only change it once a year - leave me alone).

    Oil Filter Advice Needed

    No need to pay a premium price for an overhyped filter when there are other options. Oil filters are oil filters. Change your oil at the recommended intervals and use the filter of your choice. Been following that logic for over 40 years now. Never had an issue.

    Replacing Ball Joint

    Have not done it on my Journey but did try it on another previous truck. Was even advised to put a touch of sealant when done. Result...ended up replacing it shortly there-after.

    Rotors Warped After 25k miles?

    As mentioned, buy good quality rotors ( after market / maybe MOPAR has better ones now ? ). My 2012 ( smaller sized brakes) is on its 3rd set of fronts, changed in March 2014 before extended warranty ran out and last change was 55 , 000 kms year and a half back. Now at 68,000 kms and no issues at all with rotor shakes bought MOPAR parts too...maybe they as mentioned now are using better quality materials.

    The update adds no new features to the system and the update has no impact on North American radios, but corrects some minor issues with foreign language versions of the system. So, no. Your car won't start mirroring your phone's screen of you apply the update.

    Rotors Warped After 25k miles?

    To be fair, warped rotors seemed to have been an issue with many car brands in the early 2000-2010. I had the same issue with my Ford Windstar, neighbor had the issue with his Caravan, and my sister's Explorer. All along, my Ford Explorer (Eddie Bauer) had huge rotors and pads that lasted forever with no issues. Only one rotor replacement in over 15 years. I guess the car makers weren't expecting these utility style vehicles to be used for that purpose. If you are getting that shaking, get it fixed ASAP. It can be a really dangerous situation. Rotors are not hard to replace on the DJ if you have basic mechanical knowledge. And from what I see, parts are not that expensive. Good luck.

    I want to add foglights to my 2014 SE

    Your local dealership will sell you a fog light kit (there are two versions) for your vehicle. The Mopar website lists them for $234. The difference between kits is one is for vehicles with auto headlights, the other is not (different light switch in the kit). Instructions are available on the ordering page. It does not indicate any computer update is necessary for fog light addition (check with dealer to be certain). These kits are labeled for use on 2011-2015 Journey models (your 2014 SE has the same lower bumper as is pictured on the ordering page). Without auto headlights: https://mopar.chromedata.com/NextGen/C1111#/productDetails/274851/107562665 With auto headlights: https://mopar.chromedata.com/NextGen/C1111#/productDetails/2206248/107563148

    Rotors Warped After 25k miles?

    I had to replace the pads and rotors at 11,000 miles on my 09. If you have an earlier model go with ceramic brake pads, you will get way better performance from them and the rotors also last longer.

    Rotors Warped After 25k miles?

    Pre 2012 models had undersized brakes. Don't know what year yours is, but those models were known for premature brake issues. Things do happen though. Save yourself a bunch of money and replace them yourself with quality aftermarket parts. It's extremely easy to replace the rotors on these cars.

    Replacing Ball Joint

    Out of curiosity, were you changing it just because...our are you having issues? My auto parts store around here let's you rent or borrow specialty tools like a press. Ever try that? They can help you make sure you have the right size for what you are doing. Good luck and post pictures if you do get it done.

    2010 Journey Starting issues

    I dont see how the remote start would drain anything. The signal is sent to the bcm and then it starts. I recall there was something about a wire loom that can be corroded and cause various things to not shut down. Have you checked to see if there is a draw when the car is shut down? A small draw is normal, but if its a big draw something is not shutting down. try searching the forum for that, I know it has been discussed several times.

    Alternator broke at low mileage

    Dealer alternator for a rebuilt is around $560 or so https://www.moparpartscanada.ca/auto-parts/2013/dodge/journey/crew-trim/3-6l-v6-flex-engine/electrical-cat/alternator-scat I saw a guy on youtube motor city mechanic he works at a dealership and on the 3.6 he unbolts the ac compressor on a Caravan and can squeeze it out the bottom.We had our 2013 Crew done at 45000 km and they took the rad hose approach takes a couple of hours.Got a rebuilt for about $275 or so at parts source

    Pretty standard. If it "didn't seem to fit", then you need to find the correct press that does fit.

    TPMS issue

    Well I did exactly what you said, it didn't even take a minute for the computer to update the pressure. The funny part about it is that the computer doesn't recognize that the tires were rotated, I'll post the picture at the end of this. How do I make it recognize that the wheels are I different places? The one that shows "low" is now on the front of the vehicle. Thanks for the help!

    Adding remote start

    The early generation Journeys clearly use a different system than the newer ones, but there may be some common DNA. You CANNOT self install the OEM remote start on the second generation Journeys because the controller needs to be programmed with the sales code and the controller mated to the BCM by the dealer before the vehicle can be started - so I suggest chasing down the installation instructions for the early generation Journeys and reading them through to see what's involved for yourself.

    Just introducing myself

    Hello all, I just realized that after joining a little over 2 weeks ago I put myself on the map but didn't introduce myself. Just bought my first journey (2012 V6 Crew) because my first generation Honda CR-V wasn't gonna get the job done anymore especially with fatherhood on the horizon. In the short time that I've had my Journey, this forum has proven itself as a big help. Thanks to all the admins and looking forward to posting with you all

    2014 R/T 32,000 mile report

    We have about 60k on our 2012 R/T. The Kuhmo tires were about the worse I ever had. Replaced before 30,000 miles. Replaced alternator at about 50k, funny that Charger and Challenger had recalls but not Journey. Replaced battery at same time along with belts. Front Struts are squeaking and next item. No leaks but upper bushing dry, common with all cars in the Florida heat. I do my own repairs and everything has been no problem to get at or replace. My wife loves it and couldn't replace if I wanted. On trips generally get around 30 mpg. enough power. comfort and room. Wanted to replace with a Hellcat, but can't get her to commit. She was going to commit me though.

    You should feel bad. EVERYONE knows that Chevy and Ford make every single vehicle perfect and that they are the only manufacturer that is not subject to mechanical failure. Well, at least in America. All of those Japanese manufacturers do the same thing. Dodge's will always fail prematurely and the metal they use just won't hold up. I bet you'll never make that mistake again! EDIT: Or...just maybe your dealer is an idiot. Just a thought. There is only so much that can clunk over a bump...
