    The oil bypass valve is defective on the 2011-2013 3.6 L Pentastar engine. Apparently this part has been snapping off under the oil cap, and dealers are charging $400 w/labor to replace the entire assembly.

    Before this happens, you can buy a Dorman replacement bypass valve for $14 at:

    Also the Wix and Napa Gold oil filters (#7526) have also been updated. They have a new assembly inside the top of the filter, not a open hole like the old ones.
