A D V E R T I S E M E N T S
I checked my oil before leaving on a 3 hr trip this past weekend, because I notice that centripetal force was causing my oil light light to ding. I figured it may need to be topped off. I checked it 3 times to be sure, and the dipstick showed I was at the Max fill line.
When the engine had overdrive engaged, it suddenly disengaged, losing all power. I pulled over to the side of the road when the vehicle shut off. Attempts to restart sounded as if the engine was seized up. I tried to roll it to disengage, no joy. Had it towed to my local Chrysler dealership (110 miles) and they told me the engine was bone dry. Can I suspect this to be an issue with Oil Sludge, as previously reported with the 2.7 liter engines?
