Re: 3.6 L Chrysler Pentasar engine problem

Full engine replacement at 13,000 so it is safe to say I've had an issue.

It was in the shop for about 4 days and I had it back for a couple months now with no issues so far.

Re: jeep slowing doen

I'll say that when it happens for me it is not that dramatic and I just attributed it to the 5 speed transmission.

Re: Full Engine Replacement

Right, they won't reset the odometer b/c as you said there are parts of the vehicle that will still have those miles on it, but I'll always know that I got 13,000 free miles from Chrysler.

Thanks Moose those are the 2 threads I had previously seen. Not sure of my exact build date or location. Though I would not be surprised if it was one from those batches as the symptoms match.
