mine is doing the same thing. I thought it was maybe a bypass valve issue. 1200 miles on mine. But...im not even going to try to mess with the dealer on it. If it gets worse ill pull the drive motor off and lube the valve. At least i know what it is now. Thanks internet!
Yep it's almost not worth fighting the dealer to get it swapped out. Drive it in track mode and call it good. It just really pisses me off the few times I have it in street as I'm parking or going through someplace slowly and I'm squeaking like i got a POS car... not what I like to hear after dropping 70k!
Finally! The mechanic was able to replicate the issue and got it recorded on the 'chassis ears', they talked to Chrysler and got the green light for ordering a new exhaust system. I was happy they gave me 4 free oil changes for my inconvenience. At roughly 90$ a pop that's a great make up for this hassle.
My SA told me this is the first STAR case that has been opened regarding this issue, according to him. If I get that info I'll pass it along so hopefully anyone who has this problem can simply reference the case and get it diagnosed and fixed much quicker than multiple trips to the dealer.
True but unless someone actually gets the info and puts it on this forum it may as well be the first one every time. Telling them a dozen people on a forum that had the same problem doesn't mean jack unless we have something we could point to, aka other star cases.
So I have the squeak too. What are my options? I don't mind it. Heck I'm usually blasting ACDC and with my mid muffler delete, yeah, you get the picture. But is Dodge really replacing exhaust systems if you have the squeak?
Just had this happen on my hellcat i started to notice it when i turn on the ignition but dont start the car you can hear them squeaky like stupid the vales echo through the resonator made them sound louder if the resonators were the problem but it was just the vales echoing through them
take your accurators off and spray wd40 and turn it manually by hand on the vales BOOM problem fix
Just fix mine today screw the dealer if that was the case just delete the vales haha
Yup, I had the same issue. Its covered under basic warranty but not powertrain. Mine started after Basic expired though so I got the M-FER mod, which tricks out the active exhaust to stay open (“track mode”). $150 I think it was. They tried wd40 on the valves but it didn’t work
Anyone else hear the exhaust cutout opening and closing as they press on the throttle? I just noticed this today as I was coming down the street maybe 10-15 mph, as i give it some gas I hear something squeak as if it's opening, then as i let off the throttle it squeaks again... it's like it needs some WD-40 or something.
Is this really what could be causing the noise? it aligns perfectly to the throttle input.
funny thing. At 14,000 miles I noticed the driver side valve squeak loudly when it would start up using my remote start. Driving when you tip the throttle slightly it would squeak here and there. I was ready to take it apart and lube it up when it dawned on me, why don't I put some Lucas octane boost which is a little oily. And drive the car hard. The results the squeaking went away! no joke I guess Mopar relies on the carbon from your exhaust to keep them Lube. Give it a shot put some octane boost and drive the shit out of your car.

So I am in the market to lease a 19 hellcat charger. I have been shopping around a bit and the best deal I am getting is from “one of the biggest hellcat dealers im the country”. They are quoting me at $659/month for $7500 down, 42 months...
I was about 3K miles in when I noticed the engine pitch being "different" during start up and shut down. I checked my oil and I was down a quart and a half. So I topped it off.
At the dealer oil change I informed them about the oil consumption and asked them to check into it. Upon picking it up...
While driving my new to me 18 home, I thought the rear window was just dirty. After rounds of cleaning the glass, it looks to have some distortion in the glass, and the defroster grid seems to be falling off. No signs of window tint on any windows.
Anyone run into something similar?
This post is to make owners aware of the potential of the rear window glass seal to seep or leak from the surround gasket.
FYI My 09' RT spare tire well was full of water.
After several attempts to locate leaks,and hours of sealing every body seem accessible from the inside trunk & outside,a...
