My son's 2010 Ram has a problem on moderate to heavy accel where it "lays down" starts missing and sets a MIL code for #5 cyl misfire.

We put new plugs in, and changed the coil pack but it didn't help. We can hear a tapping at #5 valve cover. Went to RAMforumz and searched for similar. A guy with a 2011 who described the same problem got blown off by the dealer. He pulled a valve cover and posted a short video clearly showing incomplete valve lift on #5.

I'm dropping the truck at my dealer on Friday to see what they figure out. Let's hope that 5/100 powertrain warranty does what it's supposed to do.
