DETROIT -- The Chrysler group is determining how many 2004 Chrysler Pacificas have faulty connecting rod engine bolts and whether any of the vehicles reached dealerships or customers.
After durability tests discovered the faulty bolts, the company halted Pacifica production from Feb. 5 to Tuesday, Feb. 10. Chrysler will not identify the supplier of the bolt to the 3.5-liter V-6 engine.
The engine also is used in the 2005 Chrysler 300 and Dodge Magnum. Production of the 300, which began Jan. 19, was halted for a half day on Feb. 5 because of the faulty bolt. Magnum production begins in March.
