1999 Dodge Caravan- 2.4L 4 Cylinder100,000
Had to replace 120,000 engine because of main-bearing failure - used 100,000 mi engine installed. Leaked oil around the head gasket very badly. Will replace head/ and gasket - there's also a lifter knock in it. I have the old engine still so I will swap off the good head for the bad.
