Re: 08 5.7 Engine Shutting off while driving

So it wasn't the relays and when I took it back this last time they absolutely could not figure it out or replicate the issue after having it for several days. They decided to put a recorder in it so when the issue occurred I could press the button and it would record any codes that showed up. So within one day of me getting it back same thing happened so I will see if this helps any.

This may have to be my next solution

Re: 08 5.7 Engine Shutting off while driving

So I finally got the jeep back. The recorder they put in my car took them back to the spark plugs and they said when they did the 60k mile maintenance they put two different types of spark plugs in the jeep which was causing the engine to drop out. So free of charge they changed the spark plugs and the ignition coils due to their error. So we will see if this finally fixes the problem or if there is still something wrong causing the problem.

Re: 08 5.7 Engine Shutting off while driving

I'm having the same problem with my 08 Commander 5.7 Hemi. It just shuts off intermittently with no warning and no code. Dash lights stay on.

If it was the Crank Position Sensor, shouldn't it give a code?

Re: 08 5.7 Engine Shutting off while driving

HELP - Crazy thing just happened on the freeway!!!


Here is a link to a thread that I started...same thing happened to me...could not determine anything wrong other than a random "electronic gremlin". Tech term.

No codes were shown (checked w/ my Trinity right after and at the dealer).

Now this only happened once to me...is this happening more frequently for you?
