CarComplaints.com Notes: Engine cradle rot is a serious problem in the 2004-05 Chrysler Pacifica. Chrysler admits they didn't apply enough coating to the vehicle's sub-frame during assembly, but only offered to cover a very small portion of the vehicles they messed up.

So what happens when your engine cradle rots? Well, the engine could fall out for starters. It could also cause problems with the suspension and other components but did I mention THE ENGINE CAN FALL OUT? The worst part is you might not know because there's no way to see the problem without getting under the car.

If you have a 2004-05 Pacifica, make sure to have your mechanic inspect your sub-frame for rust and corrosion.

On my way out of town for a family vacation we began to smell oil. We pulled off the road and found that the engine oil was leaking heavy from the under carriage. We just purchased the car used with 113,000 last week with no warranty from Gordon Chevy dealership in Augusta, GA. I was told the car was serviced. I don't know what will cause the engine oil to leak, but will post update when I find out.
