The 2.7L was a very advanced engine for Chrysler. Some sludge issues may have been from the internal water pump beginning to leak. If the water pump let loose, it would dump coolant into the crankcase and jump the chain, possibly crashing valves.
The later ones were much improved and I would not hesitate to own one.


ok, hi, hey i am just trying to find out if the dip stick to check oil from a 2.7 will work in a 3.3 motor??? ours broke off and trying to find one, went to pick and pull, only could fine 2.7
You didn't mention the year or model of your 3.3L. A used one may have the same brittle plastic handle that broke on your old stick. New ones are inexpensive enough. An example:

Welcome to Allpar.
The 2.7L was its own unique animal. There were no other variants of this engine.
The valve springs were the same from 1998-2010 (Mopar part #4663801).
What is a 'lift rod'?
