I've started to have a problem with my engine a a few months ago. I am not sure if there was any conection w the hot weather - but I started to have an engine knock when it was about 115F in CA (I parked thecarand when I got back to turn it on I noticed the knock).
I do not want to leave it w the dealer because I have no idea how long they will keep it for (even to check what the problem is).

Chrysler / Dodge 2.7L Engine Problems
From 1998-2000 2.7L Engines are prone to premature catastrophic engine failure due to a defectively designed Timing Chain Tensioner that Chrysler quietly redesigned. Unfortunately, many consumers have had to pay out of their own pockets for this while Chrysler avoids responsibility.
 
From 1998-2004 Dodge / Chrysler 2.7L Engines are prone to Oil Sludge often caused by internal coolant leakage that has to do with the design of the Water Pump that allows coolant to enter the Engine over time and cause oil sludge, experts at a well known remanufacturing company say. The second common cause of engine sludge is from poor oil circulation caused by oil passages that are too narrow causing the oil to wear down more rapidly unlike normal engines. Another contributing oil sludge factor is possibly due to an inadequately designed PCV system that can also accelerate engine oil breakdown, which Chrysler later made improvements to for the 2005 model year along with other changes knowledgeable sources state. Although Chrysler is aware and there is nothing consumers could have done to cause this, Chrysler still regularly blames consumers for 2.7L Engine Oil Sludge.

No sooner than we told you about the new recall on theMY2001-2004 Sonata, XG300 and XG350 modelsover corrosion issues of the front subframe, we learnt that Hyundai has also just issued two more separate recalls for a total of three vehicles, again for rust-related problems. In particular, the Korean carmaker issued a recall on 170,610 MY2001-2003 Elantra and MY2003 Tiburon Coupe models for corrosion and thinning of the steel in the lower control arms of the front suspension and another recall on 85,036 MY2001-2003 Santa Fe SUVs, this time for rust problems in relation to the rear suspension trailing arm.

Ball joints

 
 
 
 
hei Springville, AL, USA
 
Had to replace the upper and lower ball joints which where not under warranty or recall due to bad tire wear on the inside. After this was done at $1,800.00 I had the front end aligned and then switched the back tires to the front and 5 months later noticed the same problem. By the way the ball joints where so bad that when the repair garage lifted the vehicle that one of the ball joints fell out. gulp!! This is crazy for this to be happening and I understand preventive maintenance but this should be a factory issue.

wheel bearings

Although wheel bearings are engineered to last 150,000 miles or more, the constant load does take a toll on the bearings, the grease and on the seals. If a wheel bearing fails prematurely, it is as a result of misadjustment, contamination or loss of grease.

Once a seal starts to leak, the bearings are in trouble. A damaged grease seal can allow grease to leak out of the bearings, therefore dirt and water can then enter the bearing cavity.

If the seals on sealed bearing assemblies fail, the seals cannot be replaced separately, the entire hub assembly needs to be replaced.

chrysler air bag sensor 2005- 06

"Chrysler has determined that the supplemental front crash sensors may crack under certain environmental conditions and allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the sensor to become inoperative and illuminate the airbag warning light. These sensors were added to enhance the performance of the airbag system in certain frontal crashes
