I've got a 2018 Charger SRT. I've been trying to read all of the place to see if anyone else has this issue. I know two of my buddies have Chargers and have experienced this, but my car lets out a short but prominent squeak up starting the car and acceleration/deceleration. It's a short squeak but loud enough to hear inside the well-insulated cabin when the windows are rolled up. It's driving me nuts. I thought it may be my belts so I sprayed some belt conditioner on them to no avail. It's not my suspension because it happens even when you remote start the car sometimes. I was thinking it could be a motor mount or a belt, but I wanted to ping my fellow Charger fam first before letting the moronic dealership tinker with it.

I appreciate your feedback.

Disconnect the active exhaust valves 1 at a time. Mine is driver side that does the squeak. I have not addressed it but narrowed it down. Real bad in garage. Light gas pedal, squeak, let off gas lightly squeak.


Have not hit it with wd. Been more enjoying the 3.70 gear and the latest outing, 11.28 @ 121.6*. DA was not the greatest at 1000ft. But still a very strong pass on a stock 392 engine, cam and trans assembly.

Can I use silicone lubricant?
