To see if you have a issue , remove the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body . With the engine off , open up the throttle . With a flashlight peer down the throat of the t-body and look at the floor of the intake . Do you see any oil on the floor . If so , the gasket has failed . The plate the needs to be serviced is on the bottom side of the intake manifold requiring you to remove the intake manifold . Chrysler does sell a kit for doing this . It comes with the updated parts and hardware . Check out our vendor http://www.moparonlineparts.com/ for any parts needed . They sell factory parts at a very discounted rate .

take care in removing the intake manifold bolts, especially the front ones, I've heard that they have a tendency to break (like two of mine did) when removing them, If I were you, and if I had the time, i would soak the bolts in some penatrating oil (PB Blaster is a good one) overnight just to loosen those guys up; this could save you a lot of time and headache.
