problem #1

Apr 232015

Concorde 6-cyl

  • 101,000 miles
I was leaving work when the incident occurred and my life literally flashed in front of my eyes. I entered the freeway via the merge lane at approximately 30 mph. When I entered the freeway I slowly increased my speed to 50 mph. After approximately 3 miles on the freeway the engine made a loud knocking noise and shut off. At this point I lost all control of the vehicle, I could not steer. My vehicle scrapped off the jersey barrier and I pushed the brake pedal but the vehicle would not stop. I then pushed on the brake pedal as hard as I could causing me to skid sideways in the middle of the road. There was a vehicle behind me that had to swerve out of the way to avoid hitting me and in doing so he collided with another vehicle. I came to a stop in the middle of the road facing the wrong way on the road. Luckily there were no injuries but this could have been way worst. I took the vehicle to a mechanic who advised me that the engine failed due to sludge buildup in the engine. He also stated that this is a common problem with this engine made by Chrysler. I have changed my oil every 3K miles and I have paperwork to prove this. I cannot for life of me understand how a knowing person of this problem can turn an eye to it without doing something about it. This situation could have gone the other way, can we please do something before it does. What if it happens to your father or your mother or your kids. There has to be something we can do here! thanks
