I think when you start jumping dealership to dealership, they start to view you as a headache of a customer.

Your paragraph is hard for me to understand.

If they did lifters and/or a supercharger, that would not put coolant in the motor or require an oil change or anything flushed.

Call up the dodge customer care line and request for them to assign you a case manager. I had that done recently with a '22 JB Charger, just to ensure the dealer was moving things along w.r.t. a part that had to be ordered with a brand new car I was taking delivery of. The person would reach out via email and phone multiple times a week with updates, etc....and also, if a situation needs to be expedited (faster shipping for a part, or even a "higher priority" assigned for a part that is in short demand, like for the new cars they're building...they can also do that.)

What’s the lemon law in your state? I would try and force them to buy it back.

I agree that you can work with Dodge to have the motor swapped. I would also file a lemon law claim. I had something very similar with a Jag and although I never gave the car back, they compensated me for the 33 days that the car sat at the dealer. About $3k if I remember right. Car was repaired and there was zero evidence of a new motors.

the interesting part with yours, if it really matters, the motor will now have a different vin.

Shit my car's been in the shop for a year. Part shortage. Hopefully I get it within the next month
I would contact the guys that keep stealing hellcats. They will hook you up with whatever part you need, discount prices, they do not offer factory warranty coverages though.
Honestly I would buy parts before a car of mine sat that long.

Hopefully your car gets fixed , mines at around 2300 miles with the second check engine light. First one was code PO302 and they replaced the fuel injector and then second check engine light came on this time code PO306. Car has been mostly at the dealership service since I got it :/ wonder what’s causing these engine misfire codes

I can't explain to much but I've been doing a lot of asking questions most common issues after they chang plugs and coils there's a leakage and these dealers and there diagnostic are a joke till your engine blow than they find the problem ..found out alone people are take there cars to performance shops getting there car fix and are not having any issues after they fix the problem, that's my next option when something goes wrong
