Hi,

I have the 3yr/36k mile service warranty (free when purchased the truck) and the last 2x when the truck was brought in for its oil change service, the oil filter was dripping oil 2k miles into the oil change.

Service done at local Dodge service shop.

Talked to the tech performing the services, says he's seen this on the RAM's and they typically torque it down a little more on the 5.7l motors.

I have a 2005 Magnum R/T with the same 5.7l motor and never an issue.

Has anyone with the 5.7 motor on their RAM had leaky oil filters? Assuming the leak is from the gasket side and not bad filters.

Truck now has 19.8k miles on it.

Thanks,
Andrew

I've never seen this issue. I'm on my 2nd HEMI Ram. The first came with several years of free oil changes, so every time the reminder dinged I took it in to get changed... always with what ever the dealership was using for bulk oil and a MOPAR filter.

I also had a HEMI Magnum with no issues, and my wife's Challenger has the HEMI and never had any issues with it either. Though to be fair I've always used the Mobil 1 filters on both the Magnum and the Challenger...

good luck, and don't settle until they've fixed it correctly
