Drivability and Electrical

All Chrysler group


CJD AUTOMOTIVE is best known for our skills in diagnosing and repairing drivability concerns and electrical problems.  We fix the cars other shops can't.  Unfortunately for the customer, this is usually after another shop has put many unnecessary parts on and charged the customer.  It is cheaper and more cost effective to let us diagnose the concern and just replace the one part necessary.

Timing Belt Specials

PT Cruiser, Stratus, Charger, Magnum, and 300

Don't let just anyone perform this repair.  CJD AUTOMOTIVE has done literally hundreds of timing belts on PT Cruisers, 3.5L LX cars, and is the only shop recommended by First Coast PT Cruisers for this required maintenance.  Call for price and be pleasantly surprised!


Don't be conned into services that can actually damage your Chrysler Group vehicle.  The following is a list of services that can damage drivetrain components and are NOT recommended by the manufacturer or CJD Automotive.

Engine flush - Breaks up sludge/carbon deposits that are then circulated throughout the engine. Can potentially block oil passages resulting in engine failure. 

Transmission Flush - ​Flushes the transmission fluid by hooking a machine between the transmission and cooler.  Can potentially damage the transmission due to improper setup, operation, and fluid type/level.  The only manufacture approved method is removing the transmission oil pan and replacing the filter.

Fuel Injector Flush/Clean or Decarbon  - A device that hooks into the factory fuel rail that introduces a solvent through the injectors and into the combustion chamber,  Can potentially damage injectors, catalytic converters, and mechanical engine.

Engine Repair and Replacement

2.0, 2.4, 2.7, 3.6, 3.7, 4.7, 5.7, 6.4, and all Chrysler Group engines including Cummins

We are factory trained and certified on all Chrysler Group engines.  We can diagnose and repair all engine concerns and either repair or replace the engine depending on what is more cost effective for you. 



3.6 Rocker Arm, Lifter, Cam Replacement

We specialize in the repair of the 3.6 Pentastar.

If the cam follower has failed, cam lobe damage normally occurs.  Camshaft replacement is necessary, but many shops just replace the followers because they do not have the proper special tools to replace the camshaft.  Camshaft replacement adds very little to the cost of the cam follower repair, so if necessary, we will always repair your engine properly.  We use only factory Mopar parts and factory Mopar special tools.

5.7 and 6.4 Hemi Lifter and Camshaft Replacement

Roller lifter failure on the Hemi engine engine is usually isolated to a narrow year range.  This is a repair we are very familiar with and should only be done using Factory Mopar replacement lifters.  We do not, and will not, use the aftermarket Chinese lifters.  All lifters should be replaced as well as the camshaft when this repair is done. 


Air Conditioning Service and Repair

Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge,


CJD AUTOMOTIVE will never tell you your A/C system needs to be "overhauled".  Shops that sell this service are simply replacing all components in the hope that this will fix your A/C system without doing the proper diagnostics. This type of blanket repair is expensive and replaces unnecessary components.  CJD AUTOMOTIVE will correctly diagnose the concern and replace only what is necessary to have your A/C system functioning properly.

If the dash needs to be removed to replace an evaporator or heater core, CJD AUTOMOTIVE has the experience and knowledge to perform this repair correctly and quickly.  We have done this repair hundreds of times and know how to do it right!  This is why we can do this repair cheaper than any other legitimate shop.
