The 2.4L have an issue with poor machining practices at one of the engine plants.
Basically the guy running the crank grinder cut too much off the thrust face of the crank.
I've replaced probably about 10-12 engines and replaced 18-20 crank kits for this issue in the past 2-3 years.
I hope you have 7/70 powertrain protection. If not call the customer service number in your owners manual and ask for assistance-be nice, courteous and explain you have heard of the issues with this engine-DO NOT say "I will never buy XXX again"-they may only ask for a $100 to 250 deductable if your not a dick to them.

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.
Interesting JTEC have a few customers with this car was it just the 2005 year ?
