Thats the truth... The dealership here won't even touch a 2.7... they simply replace it with a new crate motor... Thay had sdaid somethinf about the timming being a PITA to set...
We pulled a 2.7 out of an Intrepid as it was knocking... Had the rods checked, and got a crank kit, new oil pump and the like... Put it back together and it actually ran really good... But the owner never checked the oil, it ran low after 7-10K miles, and developed a rod knock again...
We have seen a battery of these fail in 00-01-02'* its a shame to say the least...
Jim W, There is one of those 300M'* locally... I think its Blue over Charcoal trim.... Man is that thing a looker... If I ever have my digital Camera I'll have to snap a pic..
And the old 3.2/3.5'*... I have seen them with countless miles on them.... Some well past 200K... I have yet to see a 2.7 make it there...
