2012 ram 1500. cylinder...

2012 ram 1500. cylinder 5 misfire. Took it to the dealer and it's a stuck lifter wore out the cam. having done some research this seems to be a relatively common problem. Is that your experience as well?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it a steady misfire? Or random?

114,000+ miles. It's steady.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram 1500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the plug coil and fuel injector. Took it to the dealer and they diagnosed it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm just curious how common this issue is.

HI,

Which engine - 3.7, 4.7 or 5.7

5.7

HI,

I have seen this in a fair amount of 5.7L engines between 2010 thru 2013 models, enough so that I am a bit surprised that Dodge has not put out a technical service bulletin to alert techs to this issue when encountering misfire codes on this engine.

Ok. That's what I thought, and that seems to be the year range I've been seeing. I know it would cost them a lot of money short term, but in the long run it seems they would want to take care of these issues to keep people buying their vehicles. Overall I've been a dodge ram person for several years now and always boasted how happy I am with mine, and several people have bought them because of this but I'm starting to reconsider.

HI,

Chrysler/Dodge has a well earned reputation of sweeping issues such as this, under the rug. They had severe issues with their 2.7L engine from 1998-2004 and are facing a class action suit over it. Unfortunately just seems to be how they do things - hope it goes away without too much litigation.
