I own a 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona. Today my car felt like it lost power and then a few seconds later made a clanking sound and the just died. When I opened the hood, there was smoke coming out my air intake filter. Wouldn’t start again. According to the dealer, which was the closest place to tow it, it had thrown a rod. According to them it was so bad or some how oil ended up in the radiator and coolant over flow. Now I’m no mechanic so I assume what I’m being told is probably the truth but it is a dealership. They told me I needled a new engine. No way around it. The lowest cost rebuild they offered is about $6400. Not sure if that it straight engine or whether it includes labor. The write up sent to me doesn’t have much of a breakdown. Their high end was $8000+. Both are rebuilt. Any suggesting, experiences or advice would be great before I deal with them on this.
