Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2002 has the well-known and documented problem with their dashboards falling to pieces, but it also has engine failure from oil sludge. That's a doube shot of awful in your morning coffee.

I read in different places that this is a common problem and can not be fixed .Dodge Company mechanic's tried different thing's to fix this problem without success(out of warranty and under warranty) This is odd to me a recall was never issued, when this is considered common for a (Dodge) .I'm afraid my motor is gong to blowup.I think they should have a recall on this motor, this is a problem on these motors.
