It was set too high and ran too rich. It blew the motor.

Warranty now voided. We can't do any warranty work on it. The customer had enough band-aids on it to trade it. Under Chrysler rules, a Warranty can be voided with a programmer also.

isn't that something that would show up in a VIP report under the service tab?

General consensus is to avoid any extended warranty offered by anyone. They are all moneymakers for the people selling them. There should in no way be considered an investment.
