ENGINE

7/3/2017 - KINGSFORD, MI
04 DURANGO SLT 4.7 V8. RATTLING/RAPPING NOISE ON START UP THAT WORSENED THROUGH THE DAY. NOISE COMING FROM RIGHT SIDE OF ENGINE BAY. BROUGHT TO MECHANIC AND IDENTIFIED VALVE SEAT(S) IN THE ALUMINUM HEAD(S) HAVE 'DISINTEGRATED' AND/OR 'DROPPED' CAUSING THE VALVES TO SLAP ON ACCELERATION AND MULTIPLE OTHER CATASTROPHIC ENGINE ISSUES. FCA (CHRYSLER/DODGE) HAS BEEN NOTIFIED OF MY COMPLAINT AND THEY'RE FULLY AWARE OF THIS FATAL ENGINE FLAW IN THEIR LATE MODEL V8 ENGINES YET THEY REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE OR EVEN ADVISE OWNERS OF REPAIR OPTIONS. THEY MUST BE TOLD TO GO GOOD FOR THIS SITUATION. THIS OCCURRED AT 110,000 MILES. MY OPTIONS NOW ARE: A $2000 ENGINE REPAIR, $4000 ENGINE REPLACEMENT - OR - TO 'JUNK' THE VEHICLE - DON'T GET ME STARTED ABOUT THE DAMNED RUST ON THIS THING, EITHER... I FEEL RIPPED OFF FROM A FEW DIFFERENT ANGLES HERE BY CHRYSLER/DODGE AND I KNOW THERE ARE THOUSANDS (IF NOT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS) OF FCA OWNERS OUT HERE WHO WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER PIECE OF SHIT FROM THESE THIEVES.

6/30/2017 - SPOKANE, WA
WHILE DRIVING IN THE RAIN ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE WAS A LOUD NOISE AND MY ENGINE STARTED KNOCKING LOUDLY. I WAS ABLE TO PULL THE ENGINE AND PULL IT APART AND FOUND THERE WAS WATER IN THE INTAKE AND THE NUMBER 5 CYLINDER ROD HAD BROKE. LUCKILY THE PART THAT BROKE WENT DOWN AND THE OIL PAN GASKET/WINDAGE TRAY SLOWED IT DOWN ENOUGH TO NOT GO THROUGH THE BLOCK. AFTER FURTHER INSPECTION I NOTICED THAT THE INTAKE GASKETS WERE NOT SEALING PROPERLY AND ALLOWED WATER TO BE SUCKED INTO THE INTAKE AND THEN HYDRA LOCKED THE NUMBER 5 PISTON. WHEN I PUT IT TOGETHER I NOTICED THE "SEAL" ON THE COWL WASN'T EVEN TOUCHING THE WINDOW AND THAT LET THE RAIN GO DIRECTLY INTO THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND SIT ON THE ENGINE. PUT THOSE TWO PROBLEMS TOGETHER WITH THE RAIN AND NOW I HAVE A MOTOR THAT IS BROKEN. I CALLED DODGE AND THE LADY TRIED TELLING ME THAT HER "MASTER" MECHANIC HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS PROBLEM AND YET WHEN I TYPED IN A SEARCH ON THIS MODEL AND YEAR THAT WAS THE FIRST THING THAT POPPED UP. I KNOW THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH THE 2004 DODGE DURANGO. I HAVE INSERTED PICTURES OF THEIR INTAKE GASKETS AND THEN I HELD A RULER UP TO THE INTAKE FLAT AND YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THE LIGHT SHINING THROUGH THE GASKET WHICH MEANS THAT THIS WAS DEFINITELY NOT SEALING. ALSO I PUT A PICTURE OF THE COWL SEAL AND SHOWED HOW CHEAP IT IS. ALSO WHILE WE WERE WAITING TO GET THE FUNDS TO REPAIR THE ENGINE IT SAT THROUGH THE WINTER COMPLETELY COVERED AND THE ENGINE HADN'T EVEN BEEN TAKEN APART YET AND WHEN WE PULLED THE INTAKE OFF IT WAS COMPLETELY "FULL" OF WATER WHICH IN TURN FILLED THE HEADS AND THE CYLINDERS WITH WATER.

THE WINDSHIELD WIPER COWLING ALLOWS WATER TO FLOW RIGHT OVER THE ENTIRE ENGINE AND RIGHT INTO THE INTAKE. MY DODGE WAS SITTING FOR 2 WEEKS DURING HEAVY RAINS AND WHEN I TRIED CRANKING IT UP FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE ENGINE HYDROLOCKED.
