Head gasket went out at 80,000 miles. Luckily I had the extended service plan for the repairs. After surfing around the web, It is my understanding that this is a big problem with the 4 cylinder engines made by Dodge. I was told by someone that the problem was that the cylinder heads did not have enough holes (oil ports) to lubricate the parts causing the heads to overheat. I now have 181,000.
