Dodge dealer said major internal failure. Over the past 3 weeks it started drinking oil, in the tune of a quart every150-200 miles no leaks, no noticeable oil from exhaust, very little blowby. Chrysler corp said this was the 213 incident since the 24v came out. i'm baffled. I have a 92 with 1,000,000 k on it and never been inside the motor.

Sucks to hear that. Was woundering how that 92 starts and runs. I heard of alot people getting up pretty high in mileage like but never had the chance to ask them how it starts and runs.

First gens have this nasty habit of starting on the first revoluton. :woot:

Seriously, VE-Cummins start better than anything out there. Even unhealthy ones.
