Recall on the 5.7 Hemi Engine
 
This is not good......(glad I have a 6.1)

Hemi Timing Chain Defect: Chrysler's Hemi timing chain defect affects 2009 - 2012 V-8 engines in over 50,000 vehicles, many of them breaking catastrophically. It appears to be related somehow to the MDS or Cylinder Deactivation Feature. Perhaps it is putting undo stess on the timing chain when it cuts out the cylinders, or maybe it's an issue with the actual chains. It affects a lot of Hemi's out there. :(
