GTS Dean OK - the answer was the intake lifter for #5 somehow turned sideways and ground down the cam lobe. New parts installed and all covered under standard powertrain warranty - except for the engine oil.

Hugh Jass Head was warped on my friends Ram. Did the same thing you described.

not sure, but we had a rash of them for a while, doing 2-3 a day.

MoparBoyy I have replaced many 5.7 cams for the lobes on the cam wearing out, wanna replace all the tappets too while you are in there.

GTS Dean Yeah, we were wondering if the MDS could be the issue, but my Snap-On scanner can't read that. At least no codes set.

Dirtysocks I've had one with a bad mds solenoid, and one with a bad ecu on the mds circuit. Sounded like a typewriter almost. Oil changes are key on those.

Anyone have a late-model 5.7 with cam probs?

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.
