I have a 2013 ram 1500 5.7 it just recently starting having a rough idle on start up when engaged in reverse the shaking/rough-stutter gets worse. The truck will feel like it is running out of gas when slowing down and stopping at a red light. When accelerating at times it shutters but then other times it won’t seem to have an issue. Sometimes I can drive the truck for about 10 miles stop and restart the truck and it seems to run fine. I took the truck to a local dealer they told me my solenoids were bad and I had them replace them. I picked the truck up and all seemed fine on the way home with no issues. The next day I get in and drive 100 yards and the truck starts having the same exact issues. I take the truck back to the dealer and am told that it sounds like to them the truck needs a cam shaft replaced. I recently replaced the lifters and there was absolutely nothing wrong with the camshaft so I pick the truck back up from the dealer. My local mechanic gets in from vacation and he plugs my truck up to read the check engine light.The check engine light comes on with the P1411 code. I also discover I’m 3 1/2 qts low on oil after replacing my oil no more than 2k miles ago and the truck doesn’t have an oil leak. Is it possible they replaced my solenoids with faulty ones. Why do they say they think it’s a camshaft issue if the shuttering isn’t at all times because I can drive it for 10 or so miles and restart the truck and it stops shuttering. Wouldn’t it shutter at all times if it was the camshaft? Any help would be appreciated.
