I have 138,000 on my 2002 Ram 1500 4.7L Quadcab. I'm not sure of any headgasket replacement, I've only had it only just over a year. but I did discover this tonight:
This is my actual valve cover. Any suggestions on cause?

Here's a different question that just comes out of being curious. I've been reading a lot about 2002 4.7L engines having issues with head gaskets. I wouldn't really know if its any more or any less than any other brand, so I thought I would just come out and ask.
I'm not sure if this is more appropriate for the polling section of the forum so forgive me if I mis-post here. I am just wondering what your experiences have been.
How many miles do you have on your 3rd generation (02-08) RAM 4.7L, 2WD with no head or gasket or major engine problems?
I know this has no bearing on what mine will do, but I just want to see.
For the record, I have a 2002 RAM SLT 2WD Quadcab 4.7L with automatic. No towing (may get a pop-up soon though). I drive about 15 miles per day, a good mix of highway and city. Nothing fancy but its mine!
Thanks for your feedback!
