He got some pretty good life out of that engine. I met a guy last year in SC that had a ram 1500 with a serious tick. It had I believe 80K on it and he was worried. I asked him if he idled the engine excessively, he said No. He drove highway and changed the oil every 10k with mobil 1. O think that is the problem. I would go 5k on an oil change and screw what the manufacturers say.

SO that means what exactly? I have owned an older Silverado, a newer f150 and a Ram. If I had to buy a full-size pickup again it would be a Ram and possibly Chevy in that order.

I don't think people realize what a disaster a Ford anything is , they are designing and turning out these pickups and allowing customers to be the guinea pig.

Put a can of sea foam in the crankcase. It has fixed several dodge motors that had lifter ticking


Google sea foam and lifter ticking

Means more variables. Last week a woman that I work with bought one, Dodge 1500 Hemi, new 20 miles on the odometer, drove it one weekend. It its done they, dealership, can’t determine why it won’t run.

Class action lawsuit already filed by others she learned about. I am not saying its just Dodge. I am saying its Fiat, every Fiat has problems.

Sounds like an incompetent dealer service department. Fiat has nothing to do with the design or construction of a Ram Pickup. The Diesel engine which is very very good is a Euro designed engine. The problem with 10% of the rams is they are used by Police Departments, construction companies and are subject to idling for long periods of time.

Ram didn’t need the help of Fiat to screw up a Ram. They have demonstrated that they are perfectly capable of doing that all on their own.

Just like Chevy is capable of plucking up anything they build.
