It seems to be. But there was that post a few pages back about the charger that had the same problem. I've searched and been unable to find anything about this happening in a Ram 1500..

Even though the percentage with bad TC issues is small, it's going to be the re-sale value of the R/T auto cars that is going to be hurt. If someone is shopping around for a Challenger, and they read this thread, they will either go with a six speed or different car (e.g., Camaro or Mustang). I would doubt they would risk it. Or work TC replacement as part of the deal before they buy it. Now someone might say "not everyone will read this thread", that's true. However, it does have 126k in views. Sure a lot of these views are repeats, but there's still a sizeable amount that aren't. Then add in outside discussion on the issue, a lot of people are going to know about the risk.

if you try searching the internet, using different search engines, the only things I can find are on the 2 challenger forums. Yes there are some on LX and others but they appear to be the same group. So if this was such a LARGE problem, don't you think, maybe Ram 300 charger forums might have mention of them or possibly those sites that list customer complaints??? look at other issues with products, god forbid youre washing machine squeeks everyone on the internet will know.

Furthermore this problem seems to be an anomaly on only this site. Challengertalk is not the only Challenger site, I visit three or four, and found only one other failure on a car other than Challenger RT's with MDS. Someone please explain that!

Probably that most people that belong to those other sites also post here, and add to a well established message thread instead of starting a fresh topic somewhere else.

This is everyones point, for some reason this seems to be happening to Challengers at a higher rate than other 5.7 vehicles

Timing chain for a 2009 ram 1500 5.7 is part number 53022316AC.
Mopar shows this to fit 2008-2014
Keep in mind how many Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Chrysler vehicles this motor is in.
The average weekly demand in the United States is 34.
....
Can someone with access to the "weekly demand" for Chrysler Parts get historic data for the 5.7 Timimg Set and post them and then keep posting the weekly numbers so we can graph the demand and see what the trend line is?

thanks

2009 Silver R/T

This could simply be because when one begins to type "Challenger timi" (...ng chain) into Google, this thread appears at the top.

We have a Challenger Club with about 100 members. And of course they are not all R/Ts with automatics. Two have had this happen earlier this year. One of them reported it on here.
