I was traveling along the interstate and noticed a hesitation in my automobile due to a seized up engine. Just before it seized up I heard a knocking sound coming from the engine. The car would not start. The car was towed to a garage. The service person did an investigation an informed me that the engine was damaged and would need a complete overhaul or replacement. I was told by the machanic that the engine in the vehicle is notorious for failure due to a malfuctioning oil pump or defective connecting rod bearing. I did some research an found that there is a recall associated with a failed connecting rod bearing. One of my CO-workers experienced the same thing with his automobile which is a Chrysler/Dodge product. This engine is a safety hazard in that by seizing up while in motion it could cause the driver to loose control of the vehicle resulting in serious injury or death.
