Broken valve spring

I thought i would just let people know with my 08 last year was rippin home one night and the jeep was runnin fine. Parked it and the girlfriend got in it the next day and it wouldnt start. Took it to the dealership and the verdict was a broken valve spring. CAI, dcx tune no revisions borla s are my engine mods. I think we are known to have bad valve springs. I definetly would not do a cam with out updating them now. Anyhow after the dealership being gay and asking to see all my oil change paperwork they fixed it. Replaced the one broken one. Andy

Wow, you're lucky it was just the valve spring...could have been a lot worse if you didn't catch it in time or if the vehicle would've started and ran for a lil while.
