About the Challenger
The Challenger first made its debut back in 1969. Since then, its three generations have been on and off the market during different times. The latest version was released in 2008, and is still available today.
The modern Challenger has become an icon in the muscle car class since the release of the Dodge Demon and Hellcat variants. The 2018 Dodge Demon became the fastest production muscle car to ever be released.
Competition naturally comes from the big muscle cars in North America. The most notable of these include the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. However, competition also includes cars like the Dodge Charger.
Having such powerful powertrains almost inevitably leads to some problems over time. The most commonly reported for the Challenger is P0153, which indicates an issue with the first oxygen sensor in the second bank of the engine.
This is typically credited to a faulty oxygen sensor. Owners have also reported that exhaust leaks can cause this code to be logged.
Another issue that is fairly common is P0420. This code indicates that the catalytic converter in the first bank of the engine is like failing.
If both of these codes have been logged together, it is likely that there is an exhaust leak upstream of the catalytic converter. However, it is also possible that the converter needs to be replaced.
Fault code P0520 is another issue that owners have had to deal with. This code indicates that the engine oil pressure sensor is malfunctioning.
A sensor issue like this usually means that the sensor needs to be replaced. However, low oil levels can also cause this code to be logged. Contaminated oil is another potential culprit according to owners.
