Having similar problem on 1998 dodge ram, 130k. Not terribly loud at this point. Uses little oil, maybe 1/2 qt per 3k miles. I heard about the belly pan gasket going bad on a lot of these trucks, but I thought the truck would start losing oil out exhaust if gasket went bad. Have not checked it. Do you have to remove intake manifold to check it? Would be interested in the answer you get on here. Thanks.
