2004 Dodge Durango Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


2004 Dodge Durango Limited 5.7 Hemi with under 80,000 miles. I am the original owner.
Car has been well maintained.
Oil changes every 3000 miles. Never had any overheating problems.

This vehicle has served me well for the past 9 years until about a month ago.
Without warning, while going down the freeway, it made a terrible noise.
I knew it was something major.
The oil light came on.
There was a bunch of smoke.
I shut the engine off and pulled off the freeway.
I could see oil dripping from the engine.
After having to towed, i learned there was a hole in the engine block from a thrown rod.

After doing some research on the web, i found 100s if not 1000s of cases just like mine.
