Who would have known a direct injected 2.4 could run so long?
I unloaded my 2011, 2.4 after 5 years and 7,000 miles because of the horror stories relating to this engine, and the fact the high pressure pump was dumping raw fuel into the crankcase.
After discovering that the fuel pump had three revisions in around a years time, I decided I wanted this disaster gone. This engine was released before adequate testing had been done; so many marginal internal components that fail prematurely.
I still believe that the root cause of so many 2.4 problems stem from the engine oil contamination by fuel, and not necessarily because of faulty components like chains, actuators, pistons/rings, etc. Still the PCV system was poorly conceived and it alone causes many problems, including rear main engine seal failures.
In summary; I'm glad that I don't still have mine, but am intrigued that some of you have the fortitude to keep one of these running for so many miles! I'm impressed!
