They can produce a vibration at idle  an uneven or surging idle while coasting in drive at speeds up to 5MPH. Chrysler has issued a software update to correct the problem. So get that done before you replace anything else. For more information refer to Technical service bulletin 18-017-08 Rev A.

You need a professional shop manual to work on a late model vehicle.

Forget about those cheap manuals you find at the auto parts store. They will just lead you astray. Here are the two best online shop manuals around.
