Pentastar production points

Building the Pentastar V6 Engine in Trenton, MI

The Pentastar V6 engine is now being made at both Saltillo (Mexico) and Trenton (Michigan) plants, according to reliable sources within Chrysler. They discussed the processes involved and issues of block porosity and leakage, which are being vigorously pursued by the plants, resulting in lost production rather than leaky engines being sent to customers.

A summary of current information, including how Chrysler tests and handles the blocks, is at the Pentastar engines site; or you can follow the discussion at allpar as it develops.
