Other kits out there. I was reading up on this the other night. What exactly it is that is problem with the MDS motors this shows up is puzzeling to me.
After all the research I did and with the clicking noise I told him to look at the lifters. He started calling around and one of the dealerships he called had 4 vehicles sitting waiting for new cam lifters. Was not going to get the parts from dealership.Not sure what you mean by he is focusing on cam and lifters.
Its pretty simple, pull the vavle covoers and see what vavle is not moving as much or as far s teh others, that is teh failed vavle and slagged camshaft is the result. hence, the misfire.
Yoru mechanic is not inpiring confindence, to me.
COuldbe yoru reporting but, even so, you have been given enuff info to test this simple test, assume you have told your Wrench so still not usnderstanding why it has notbeen done. talking few minutes here to rexolve.
One of the lifters the mechanic he showed me was all scraped up on top and loose (that's what causes the the "hemi knock" Then he showed me inside the cam with a camera of how it was rough it was.Update coming tonight. Not good news.
My warranty was 5 years / 100,00 miles. The 5 years came first. Makes you wonder why Dodge cut back their warranty to 3 years 60,000 miles. They know what the problem is but won't address the issue. Don't feel like bugging the crap out of them. It can and will happen again but the question would be when. Don't feel like handing them money they don't deserve.You said the truck had 80K miles?
Any chance there's still some powertrain warranty still active?
You'd have nothing to lose by seriously bugging the crap out of FCA even if the powertrain warranty has timed out. An engine shouldn't take a shit like this at 80K miles if it's been maintained properly like yours, and this is absolutely a known issue.
