Question about 1989 Dodge Dynasty
If it's the 3.0L engine, they were well known at that time for valve seat, guide and seal problems. Provided you have checked for other possible problems via compression test to verify rings are o.k., I'd be looking at having heads re-done, or pick up a rebuilt set if car has a few years left in it. Basically if cost is justified. You may be able to get a used set off a newer 3.0L , that has had that corrected already. Can't remember exactly what year Chrysler corrected it, but recycler (wrecking yard) should have that info in their books, or on computer. A good,reputable, automotive machine shop should be able to pull covers and check for you to see if the possibility of seals only is in order, and they can be done without removing cylinder heads.
