OK here’s my problem. I have a 2012 Dodge ram lonestar 1500 V8 5.7 L hemi with 157,000 miles, and I’m getting a cylinder 2 misfire.
- Replaced spark plugs with dealer recommended plugs
- Did a fuel injection cleaning (through fuel line, not an additive)
- Replaced the igniter coils
Still getting a cylinder 2 misfire. It does not happen when I start the truck, or when I gradually accelerate. It only happens when I “give it some gas” or go uphill, and the engine shakes.

Good eveningI would start by removing the valvecover on the passenger side and see if the rocker arm is loose. If it’s loose then you will need to pull the head and check the lifters. We have seen quite a few that are chewing up the camshaft and lifters.

OK. I will check that tomorrow morning.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Do you have any idea what something like that would cost to repair
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
If that’s the problem
Well I charge 16 hrs because you have to take off the other head and the front timing cover in order to replace the camshaft and all 4 sets of lifters. So your looking at a min of 1,600 just in labor. Our last one the customer had 112,000 and decided to pay 20 hrs labor and swap engines.

Wow. Wasn’t expecting that :(
Ok. If I have to do that, is there anything else I should have them look at since they’ll already have the head off?
No if a dealership does it they will know exactly what to check. I was wish the HEMI was a better engine and wouldn’t eat lifters and camshafts up like they do but I’ve made a pile of money on them. Sorry your having issues but I’m just shooting you straight from a 20 yr dealer techs point of view. We do about 1 a week.
