I think that you're correct, 5-20 was the spec.
Been so long, and I'm used to the 0w40 that I have to use on my '16. I'll correct my post, and thanks for catching that.

Oil has nothing to do with this failure, and there's 5w20 conventional oil everywhere, every brand.
5w20 conventional is factory fill now, and it was back then.

|Davesanrn||I found comment H interesting, and maybe things were different in the earlier models, but it says it happens with both synthetic and conventional oil. I know there is no conventional 0w20, and my understanding is the multi valve displacement will only work with 0w20. So that makes me wonder if people are putting conventional oil in that is causing the failure.|

'14's have the new style "shoe", so it's doubtful that this is the failure. There's always a chance of being "the first", but more than likely it's not the TC issue.
By early '12, the new parts were in production Challengers.

|sea of glass||I'm no gear-head either, but will give you my summary. "timing chain is an internal part of motor. Timing chain connects main crank that operate your pistons - to cam shaft via timing chain that moves your intake and exhaust valves.. If your timing chain breaks there will be no mechanical timing connection between the valves and pistons. They will freely spin independent of each other. The car will not run in this condition. I'm not sure what these newer cars have up front. It used to be a water pump and fan that would make the noise up front of the motor. I would have the car checked first chance you get.|
