problem #1

Feb 012019

200C 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles

Started smelling burnt oil in the cabin once engine warmed up. Parked the car in the driveway and checked the dipstick. No engine oil in the crankcase. Looked under the car and engine oil was dripping from under intake manifold all over exhaust and transmission housing. Gave the car to my mechanic and the diagnosis was a cracked oil cooler/oil filter housing. Mechanic said this is a well know and common problem with the 3.6L V6 Pentastar engines (jeep, dodge, Chrysler all affected), that he does at least one of these type of repairs weekly and that Chrysler has known about it for years. Car has 47,000 miles on it. These types of issues shouldn't occur.
