thanks all for responding I updated my engine type on my profile. I didn't realize that there was more to the list when I was registering my account. Anyway I think it's correct not however I don't know all that much about engines.

How to you tell which engine you have? It's a 2005 Dodge 1500 and the 8th letter in the vin is "J" if that helps.

Anyway the service writer is still clinging onto the "cold weather" theory. I don't buy it.

From what i'm being told is that the valve cover is either cracking or warping so the seal gets broken. Also in the past it's only been one cover to go. This time both went.

I appreciate any help I can get so if there is any more info that I can provide please let me know. I contacted Dodge and their response was "it's out of warranty" so good luck.
