Failure Date: 06/01/2002

My 98 Neon has a failed head gasket contacted a local dealership and was told only original owner and under 70,000 miles was considered for assistance by Chrysler on repair. I was told to call back on Monday (I called on a Saturday) to speak with the service manager for more assistance on the matter. I was also given a quote for repair and even told by the parts person that they keep the gasket package in stock due to the known issue. The quote was $124 for the gasket package (parts) and $336 labor plus tax. I would like to know why Chrysler has not been required to issue a recall on this well known problem.

Engine head gasket failed, this is a common enough problem with the engines used in these cars that Chrysler has issued serveral tsbs on it. None of the failures to my knowledge have to date caused anything worse than overheating due to oil/coolant loss, but could potentially cause more serious damage if left unrepaired for any length of time.
