Last Update from my post starting at page 111:
The damage stopped at the heads no other damage was done to the bottom end, so I'm thrilled about that. MY TOTAL cost out of pocket was $5500.00. Sigh!
Optional Reading: Not saying this is what anyone should do or am I in no way promoting any other brands at all. I still love the size, style and character of the Challenger, however when I drove the 100 miles to pick up my car needless to say It didn't make it home. I continued to drive to Grapevine, Tx. and traded it in on a Dark Gray 5.0. After driving it home I can say I am 100% over the Challenger. I am very pleased with the mustang and I won't say anymore to avoid sounding like a troll. :-)
I wish all auto/mds Challenger owners out there the best of luck, and yes If I was just someone reading this thinking it could possibly happen to me I would of disabled mds. At least till more information surfaces. I really think the combined minds on this forum has narrowed down the problem. Also no matter what, even if you go in for an easy oil change. take off any program if you have one on there. :-)
I enjoyed the maturity of those on this forum. This group is one of the more mature groups of car enthusiasts and usually without major egos. As for myself I guess I'll be back to Stangnet or Allfordmustangs a little more. I will be peaking in from time to time because I'm an enthusiast myself and not brand loyal. I like reading most car forums out of curiosity, even go to camaro5. Maybe cause I owned multiple Mustangs, Camaro's and Firebirds. I will stay subscribed to this post in hope to see a fix. Hopefully it comes as easy as a computer flash.
P.S. I really hope Dodge makes good and does a recall on whatever the problem truly is when they narrow it down but I do have a lil feeling they already know.
Once again sorry for the long windedness, that's just me. :-)
