May she rest in piece.
No idea at all.... it is very weird for sure. Why one lifter/cam lobe would crap out and destroy each other is very odd. I suppose it's anyone's guess which part failed first resulting in the destruction of the other.wsm04rubi said:Weird. Any idea what caused it?
I should probably consider doing the same in the future.Eric said:bummer Doug, at least it's covered under the warranty. i just ran a BG fuel service on mine last week to clean some of the junk out. I couldn't believe the black junk (carbon deposits) that blew out the exhaust
There's a big surprise!bbusch said:started a case with Chrysler but they don't seem to want to help at all.
That may be the issue, you need to rap it out sometimes. The flat tapets have to rotate to wear evenly, to get them to rotate, you need to toss some RPMs at it. (I am acting like I know what I am talking about, but I only just read this on another thread a few days ago) The cam has a slight angle on the lobes to cause the rotation of the tapits, this only works when the motor is screamed out. I have red-lined mine a few time for very short amounts of time, but never found the limiter. I just manualy shift my auto to first gear then mash the gas til red line, hit second gear to redline, hit drive to redline then it shifts on its own from there, and most of the fun stops.desertfox1 said:I don't abuse the motor at all Don't think it's ever seen higher than 3500 RPM.
They said the head need rebuilt due to pitted valves and seats, so it made sense just to throw in a new long block as opposed to a short block, since it was a warranty deal.KingRubiconMan said:They give you an entire new long block for a bad camshaft and lifter? I'm surprised. That's pretty good though, you're basically getting a new engine.
You aren't covered under the federal 7/70 emissions warranty?kevin719 said:I feel your pain desertfox, glad you got one covered under warranty, makes me wonder why the 04 & 05's had a 7/70 and my 06 was only offered a 3/36 warranty :shh: , ya think Chrysler new something was going on.
