    it might be worth taking it across the border if it is the following tsb (which i hear applies to the 2007's) it costs 2000grand to have it done.

    It still won't work because it is now a gray market vehicle. And considering it is now a Canadian vehicle... no warranty coverage in the US either.

    Yep, it's a bummer, but I really appreciate the info. When the mechanics had it on the road last week hooked up to the scanner, they couldn't find anything misfiring. I haven't had any problems with it so far this week that I'm aware of. I'm planning on going on a camping trip about 6 hours drive away this weekend, and will do some mild off-roading while I'm there. This is probably a naive question but should I be concerned about doing any damage to the vehicle if the engine seems to be working normally?

    Well you have 2 head gaskets if it's a 3.7.. if your oil doesn't have a whitish look to it then it ain't no head gasket issue. I would start by pulling the rocker covers on both heads, replacing rockers and lifters after flushing and blowiing out head lash ports...... if still spitts rockers then maybe a head removal and that's alot of work..
    Prob pull motor If it's truly a gasket issue.
    Do a pressure test on each cylinder first. Auto stores have the guage tool.
    Manual will tell what your compression will be tdc..
    I know. It's a pain. Chrysler pains.
