My 2005 dodge ram 1500 hemi daytona started making a ticking noise that was consistent with the RPM's and when i came to a complete stop it was very choppy making the whole truck bounce up and down, similar as to if I was about to run out of gas. I initially thought it was just an exhaust leak like a loose clamp or something since i have a Flowmaster cat-back exhaust system. So i Brought it to my local mechanic and he ran some tests on it and determined it was a coil pack problem and replaced the misfiring fuel injector. Then he said after that the ticking and other problems were still there so he ran some compression checks on it and determined there was an issue with a cylinder and he explained to me it would be easiest to replace the whole motor to fix the problem since he would have to completely take apart the motor anyways to get to the blown cylinder.. This seemed a little outrageous and extreme for such a small problem, especially considering the truck has only 58k miles on it. Do you think this a legitimate problem and replacing the motor would be alright or do you think i am getting scammed? Also do you think my cat back exhaust and Ram air intake has anything to do with the problem? Any help or advice would be great. Thank You!!
