Chrysler is paying to install a new cam (2005/2006 owners should read this)

I'm sure most people are aware of the E05 recall for some of the 2005 model 4.0l's having premature oil pump drive gear wear. This recall involved engines that were built between 10/20/2004 and 02/01/2005. Apparently my 2006 is experiencing the same symptoms (My build date is 10/2005).

I noticed this when I was searching for the cause of some drivability issues:



Chrysler has decided to do the right thing and cover the repairs (new cam, cam shaft synchronizer, etc...). All I have to cover is $100. I was very happy to get the news yesterday!

I'm sure I'm not the only 2006 owner that has this problem. If you have a 2006 I would make sure you don't have this problem too.

You will have to pull the camshaft synchronizer (distributor looking thing on the passenger side of the block) and check the gear at the bottom of the shaft and the cam gear. Make sure you take the black plastic cap off and mark the rotor, the housing, and the engine block. U have to put it in the exact orientation as it came out. (Do not turn the engine over while its out)

I have been getting random misses and crank position snesor codes. I have tried 2 new sensors and still getting the code. I think the slack in the gears is causing the crank/cam sensors to be out of sync. That's just a guess as of now, but that is what led me searching for things and I found this. I then called chrysler and was told to get it diagnosed at a dealer, so id id. They then decided to cover it under the recall. I have 64k miles. Sorry for the crappy grammar, I'm posting from my phone and its not easy to do.

And the TSB number for this is???
IIRC this issue is from mid 2005 to the end of production for the 4.0L...

knuckelhead, all of the info on this was posted on the CO 4x4 site probably 2-3 years ago. It included all the dates and numbers. I'm not sure there was ever an official recall though. I think if you had a problem and took it in they fixed it. You may want to do a search there for the info.

IIIRC I was in on that discussion. I met a guy at Moab in 2006 who had that exact same problem (with 13,000 miles on it), but his gear was stripped completely.
I told him to have the dealer fix it. The last I saw of him, his 06 Rubicon was heading off in the sunset on a trailer...
