The yellow residue is common and normal. It's water from condensation and it easily happens when there are cold periods followed by warmer and more humid periods. It's only when there is a huge amount of this coupled with water/coolant in your oil that you have evidence of a problem. The best solution is to drive the vehicle for an hour or two regularly ...

tnx for all the help. I finally have found the issue to my problem. it turns out that the coil boots were melting onto the plugs. I replaced all the plugs and coil boots. also it turns out I had a bad cam shaft sensor. once those 3 things were replaced the issue never came back. lets not jinx it now. but yeh, no issues

Yollooool's answer is excellent and sounds like a very real possibility given the history you describe. Another thing that could potentially cause problems starting when the engine is warm is the coolant temperature sensor - I had very similar symptoms when mine failed.

Whoohpppphhhffhh, that's a loooong array of problems you've suffered; Better you than me! :P You have said the engine overheated at one point. This can be a cause of the hard starting when warm. It can also be down to the engine heating up the injectors. It doesn't stop it from starting altogether, but it can cause difficulty in some cases. In theory, the ...

The temparatures is normal,coolant temparature is 197F=91C so this is spot on what it should be. Oil temparature is fine too,it is often a bit higher than the coolant temparature and this is normal.

Dodge Journeys have, according to your manual, auto-lock settings in u-connect (oddly named auto-unlock) that have five or six requirements for auto-lock to work. These involve key location, how it was unlocked last time, etc. https://carmanuals2.com/get/dodge-journey-2015-owner-s-manual-31115. Also supposedly your car has "keyless enter and go" which ...

If its really coolant, then heater core is probably leaking. Surprised your mechanic can't find that. If its just water (even dirty water), there should be a drain (if you've ever seen a car drip water on a hot day with the AC on) have your mechanic verify the drain is clear. Both are typically on passenger side of car.

I owe this to anyone searching this forum site for answers. It turns out that the 2009 dodge journey radio acc ignition switch is controlled by some internal computer in the car called CAN BUS or DATA. you'll find different references for it but the 2 i just mentioned are it. What that means is that if you are installing aftermarket radio/head unit you wont ...

That red from your new unit is for ignition. We used orange for ignition but it could be anything by the time it gets to the head unit. You shouldn't have to run cable to connect it. The harness adapter you got might be missing the ignition. Look up a pinout for the original harness and find the ignition line, splice that into your red. Alternatively look ...
