next week my 05 srt4 is going to get the engine fixed, a rod is knocking..it has oil and no apparent visual leaks..anyways what does dodge do in a situation like this, do they rebuild it, or put a whole new motor in it?

Depends on the dealer. Most will just install a new short block. Some places will rebuild. But when the short block is only 1000 or so...they'll likely just replace it.

If the cost of the rebuild is 70% of new, then they will use new. The block is not available seperately, so if the block is bad, they will replace new.

One thing that is common is to see a crank seal come loose and leak all the oil out, which is actually an issue w/ crank end play. This REQUIRES a new block and does not allow for rebuild.

There should be no reason to take longer than a week. What on earth would take that long?

This is how I got my new motor. And it wiped out the stock turbo.

I had mine back in 5 business days. The only reason it took that long was I had the Mopar performance clutch put in it and they were waiting for it to get to them.

i dont know why i think it will take so long, it just seems they take forever with stuff like that, im just going to send it with the bov on, and then raise hell if they dont replace the engine, cuz the blow off valve cant blow the engine and they have to prove that, also if i leave it on, when they put a new engine in it or whatever will i lose my bov?
