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.
