It would have set me back about 1100 dollars without the extended warranty. Labor at the Dodge dealer was about 625.00 dollars and parts were about 250.00. I wouldn't drive it around beacause if the chain skips a tooth or 2 you valves will hit the pistons. Caiught mine just in time!
THey told me that the timing chain guides wore out and the chain was slapping around. They also replaced the tensioner which went bad. Also they replaced some bushng as well. There were 2 tensioner parts they replaced. Basically the timing chain tensioner failed which caused the chain to rattle. All fixed now! Thank the Gods!I am going to put in synthetic oil and people recommend that you don't use fram oil filters. Why is that?
