They are all good engines, making sure they are maintained properly is the big key to any engines life span.

What engine came in your car?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
the 2.7 came with the car I am the original owner. I maintain my car will. I have had no problems until now. Once it hit 90k miles he crankshaft became loose. I am going to have to replace the engine....and i see that the 2.7 has had many problems in this vehicle. I want to keep the car but don't want to have to get another engine in another 90k miles
Dodge Mechanic: David Dill, Dodge Technician replied 8 years ago

The problem with trying to change engines is the cost involved. You'd need a different computer, exhaust, wiring harness, cooling system etc

okay, but that does not answer my original question. Is there a comparable chrysler/dodge engine that will not have the same issues?

 

Dodge Mechanic: David Dill, Dodge Technician replied 8 years ago

The 2.7 engine was unique to these issues. Although all engines can have issues of one kind or another.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
