BLOWN ENGINE 50,000 miles

Turn 50 k on my 2010 challenger RT last week. I drive alot obviously. 70mph down the expressway heard a small pop and the enginge died. would not restart. flatbed to the dealer to find out that there is no compression. crank spining but not the cam. Zero clearance heads means that the valves were smacked by the pistons. nice. I assume the timing chain broke. Has anyone else experienced this. I loved the car till last friday.

Do a search there have been tons of posts over the past month about timing chain failures. Mostly on automatics I think. Some have said it has something to do with the MDS.

Does anyone know if they use the same chain for the 2011 and 2012 model R/T?

Yep, it would be nice if "someone in the know" could tell us if a different/updated chain is being used as the replacement.

This problem doesn't appear "widespread", but there have been several with this failure that posted.

I've got a little over 17k on mine, so it'll be a while before I hit the 50k mark. That said, I'll probably be on a road trip in the middle of nowhere when it craps out!

Not a comforting thought. We haven't really been told if this is a "batch" issue with chains, or just random "unluck".

Guess time will tell

Sorry to hear about that problem sailaire. That just plain sux
Yes, please keep up advised of the outcome. Man, I really hope its not another timing chain failure, though it does sound like one based on previous posts on that issue. Does your car have an auto with MDS, or the manual tranny?
Hopefully they get her back to you good as new very soon.
