bad lifters or oil supply restricted somehow. The cam bearing journal itself dont look too hot (slightly blued)
A friicking men.... even a cummins is kinida being overkkille... "OMG, it shows piston ring material,. I need a rebuild now!! " when the wear is actually normalIt can but its only useful if you have the money to do something about it now. Most people I know that did it regularly and found they might have and issue still ran it untill it broke and just replaced the engine because it was still cheaper then paying for an overhaul. They just went about saving money for the new engine or started scouring junkyards for a used one to keep ahold of until the one in it finally blew.
Now if your in the business of over the road professional truck driving there's a huge benefit in that rebuilding a 15L engine is cheaper then replacing one, and you'd want to do one before catastrophic failure. but in a dodge ram. maybe on the cummins.
Ummm... loook at your previous posts about axle leak and then get bak to us,,,I’ve got the lifetime powertrain warranty, so if there’s a problem ram is fixing it.
and how much BS did they put you thru it according to posts on here? Sounded like a sh*tloadAs soon as the leak happened the pickup was taken in. They covered that. Oil analysis wasn’t done on that.
