Does this mean Chrysler no longer makes 2-strokes? Because it seems like almost everything they made in the 90s and early 2000s were, and that people used a higher oil-to-gas ratio than recommended. crush

Shame on those who caused the previous thread to get locked. Holy smokes guys. It an engine assembly thread!

*Also, to those of you who don't understand simple manufacturing, assembly can be a slow paced task.

I figured there would be comments but I was trying to steer clear of this one getting locked as well.

As for oil burners, yeah tell me about it. If it wasn't that it was heads/head-gaskets or puking transmissions. I think Mercedes was the best thing that happened to them because the stuff out now is largely influenced by them. They still have a long way to go though.

'Twas the Germans who ran them into the ground. Can't say I agree with you there Steve.

I'm talking about the technology not the way the company is run.

The Mechanical injection Cummins engine in the 90's YES absolutely, everything else has been so/so.

Weren't most of the Chrysler oil burners made by Mitsubishi? I'm thinking specifically of the notorious V6 in the Caravan/Grand Caravan/Voyager....etc. My buddy owned a few of them that were foggers.

Some were the Mitsu's but you also had some of the Chrysler engines as well. Then there was the sludger 2.7L's

I honestly don't remember any of the Chrysler-branded ones being bad for oil burning shrug But yes, there was that sludge beauty of a 2.7L!

The minivans with the dying tranmissions and smoking Mitsubishi 3.0L's in them were a nightmare combo that definitely gave those vans a reputation! LOL

The 2.7 was the only bad Mopar engine I can think of, their trannys were solid too until the 4 speed was launched. The Mitsu 3.0 was the only oil burner I can think of, but of course it was available in almost everything, along with the 4 speed! oilburner

Yes, the Mitsubishi 3.0 and 2.6 were junk. With the exception of the 2.7 (which had a weird internal water pump) Chrysler's own engines were decent. The 3.9 six and 318 are probably the most durable gas engines in existence.
