95 ram 2500 engine problems
ok soo...the truck has 215000 hard earned miles on it. my dad thinks the whole motor is just about done. I just want to make sure he's not making any rash decisions. It has been experiencing power loss lately especially when towing. It also burns more oil than it should and blows a lot of white smoke. Also when its towing - only the big loads - you can hear the valves rattling and it just makes me want to cry. And on top of all that the check engine light comes on after about 20 min on the highway. now im not really engine savvy, but im not a total noob. but what i think is that i should probly get my heads looked at but it would most likely be me and a buddy so before i do that is it even worth it? ive also read in places about the plenum pan or whatever not being very good on the 2nd gens but i dont even know what that does. I know its a lot of questions and my grammar sucks but I'm lazy and I could use some outside input. thanks guys.
