I'm not sure, but I think the speed that it broke at is important



Curious how many miles are on it.

Chrysler recommends it at 100k, but some have been going out before.

Yeah it could have bent valves, I hope for your sake it didn't, it makes an expensive job way more expensive. Let us know how you make out, good luck.
