Interesting JTEC have a few customers with this car was it just the 2005 year ?
No, the issue is from 05 to 07 and is very inconsistant. Most were 05 or early build 06 but I have done 1 mid year 07 just last month.
It typically takes them 15000 to 25000 miles to push the seal out which explains why they didn't identify the issue quickly.
There is no sequence of Id for the issue since they don't know which engines the goof screwed up-was it all or some and which did he machine?
Interestingly enough for those that like the "low cost" labor-all 2.4L with this issue come from the Saltillo engine plant in upscale Ramos Arizpe, Mexico. Jose the machinist strikes again.
