oil leak at cooler housing oil leak at cooler housing

I have been told by dealer that it is $1700 to tear down to confirm problem, and the warranty won't cover tear down. Warranty also won't cover DEALER INSTALLED Scat Pack options ($11,000 in upgrades Stage 3 Scat Pack) but will only cover basic long block ONLY if internal damage caused failure. Which is unknown until teardown is performed at my cost!!!???

What the HELL did I pay $2200 for an extended warranty for??? So I pay $32,000 for a 5 year old car that was DEALER modified with Mopar Performance parts, and NONE of this is covered? Also this is an all wheel drive car, so no burnouts, power brakes, drifting or ANY other abuse. It was only purchased a year ago as a comfortable family cruiser with that extra burst of power to merge on freeway, adult owned and babied...

Really Dodge??? 43000 miles??? What is this car? A remake of a 1978 Aspen??? I don't think FORD or CHEVY would stoop that low, and MOPAR CARES' 1-800 line??? Is that some kind of a joke ?? Operator said nothing there's nothing Chrysler can do, but he's SORRY for any INCONVENIENCE!!!??? My inconvenience started right after I bought the car, with 3 RECALLS that took months to correct, a stalled car in morning rush hour traffic due to a broken valve spring while idling, and now this!!! ALL WITHIN 16 MONTHS!!! Well I guess the saying is correct, Mopar or no car... It is the same thing, Mopar = No car...

Well troops,

2014 Dodge Charger Police with the 3.6.

Started smelling oil yesterday, thought I was just following another vehicle burning oil, today while driving to work the check engine light comes on, not the oil pressure light. Scroll down the message center to the oil pressure gauge and it's all good and keep driving to work.

Get to work and noticed the pooling of oil under the intake, check the dipstick and she's almost dry. 4 liters later we're GTG and I drive to the dealer with the engine light still on.

The first thing the dealer said was who did the last oil change?

Oil Changers did, a month ago and I have put on almost 3500 kilometers since. If over torquing the filter cap was a cause it would of leaked right away.

More details, car has 28,000 kilometers and six oil changes so far.

I drive 99% highway at 100+ kph, about 600-700 kilometers a week (120 klics round trip)

When it started leaking was the coldest day this year -27 Celsius.

It's still at the dealership and hopefully get repaired tomorrow, although they did spring for a rental.
