Considering that the chain tension guide part that is used on the 5.7L is the same one used on the 6.4L during that timeframe up until 2012 before they switched to the newer part, I think they should include the 6.4L engine in the recall or at least incorporate an inspection plan into the regular maintenance schedule.
Better safe than sorry. All it take is one person to have a fatal accident from this.

Dang Rick, hate to hear that!
I'm SO glad that I bought the "bumper to bumper" lifetime extended warranty after hearing this.

|RNashCPA||Exactly what I had, and of course, out of warranty, so that $1,568 repair was on my watch!!!|

Government Motors has that beat.......took em about 7 years to admit that they had defective ignition switches!

|fxef79||Wait a minute. You had heater door motor problems, too? Lemme guess. The motor runs past the point at which it should have stopped and breaks the door? We noticed it right after getting the car back. It won't switch any more between interior and exterior air. Or am I describing something other than what you had?|

After holding in my own hands my broken parts at 55,320 miles, I too, would love to see pics of the 131,000 mile parts . . . please get these and post the pics. Good luck!! Rick
PS Now have over 72,000 on my 2010, no issues since repair, except for A/C Heater door actuator motor problems.

Agreed, that's a good thing. The problem isn't a problem anymore with the updated parts, so everyone can "move on", and it's nice for anyone interested to have an article like this.
Mistakes happen, just fix them. That's all that was ever wanted.

Chris, as of late, a lot of folks are reporting that they can keep their old parts, as Chrysler isn't requesting them back.
If so, it appears that they don't need to see these anymore, know what's going on (duh), and are saving the freight costs.
It would be very interesting to see yours!

|hmk123||Just got the latest issue (4-2014) of Mopar's Magazine. They have an article in there with pictures on how to replace the timing chain parts of a 5.7L. They reference the recall and mention that the TC Guide can fracture and cause engine damage and recommend it being replaced. I guess it has come full circle... Good for them to talk about it in their own magazine...|
