Since the vehicle is already at the mechanics, the standard check this and that scenarios don't apply. I also try to refrain from judging a situation that I'm not in front of, but something isn't quite right.
In case you are being taken advantage of, knowledge is power and I'm going to do my best to empower you. So let's get to the right questions to ask your mechanic.
Every one of the questions (just about every one) I put down would be reasonable if your car kept working perfectly the first time. I did get on a bit of a rant, please forgive me for that.
When asking them:
If these guys are trying to pull a fast one, they are lazy by nature. They are hoping for the same in those they take advantage of. Being prepared is key.
If you have one of those digital voice recorders, make sure it has fresh batteries and set it to record. The second you start asking questions you have the momentum, they are on the defensive.
Ask as many questions as you want. If you don't get straight answers, if you get waffling, condescension or BS, have them get your car ready to go, Don't pay them another dime. And as you leave, ask my final question: Do you guys know a good mechanic?
If you decide to take them to court, that recording is evidence. Their response to that question will likely win you the case.
I hope I have given you enough ammo to get to the bottom of this. If you need anything else comment me back, I'll respond as soon as I get it.
Either way, please let me know what happens. Can you tell I have issues with a certain type of 'business person'? ;-)

Probably blowed it. Sorry to say. You can continue to crank it but it probably already seized a bearing. Run a pressure check on the oil.

unfortunatly the dealer will not allways be upfront and completely honest with you about things like this.truth is the high milage is the reason the light comes on cause its got a lot of wear on the oil pump and an increase of gaps in all the places that the oil goes to.
if you would like that light to turn off all you will need to do is change your oil over to a high milage oil or even maybe a thicker weight oil or a straight weight oil.like a valvoline racing 40 or 50 weight.
hope this helps

My thought is to get a refund from the shop that tried to replace parts in order to secure your problem. The job of the shop is to diagnose the problem, not to replace items that may be the problem. Chrysler Master Techs are not trained to just replace parts, they fix the problem by diagnosing it properly.
You need to see a Chrysler dealership so they can attach a DRBIII and tell you exactly what is at stake.
I hope this helps you. I would be mad as heck.
I would not think the plugs and wires would be the problem because they would all have to fail at the same time to provide the symptom you experienced.

There is no machine for this,however a VERY skilled auto electric shop might be able to help.They really have to have a Gift with car wiring to fix your problem,it can be FIXED,find the right shop in your area.I will try and think this through to help you,this is what I used to do,It's not a book problem it is experience that will fix your car. I do have a question? How does your car run without the AC on?
