Engine Performance problem
1999 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles
My Dodge Ram 1500 99 drinks a lot of oil. Not that much that I can't controll it but still, I need to add oil a few times between oil changing period.
Other thing is that I can hear some pinging/knocking/ratteling sound under the hood when accellerating or driving under load/or up-hill. Sounds like something loose inside. Something like shaking a tin can with something in it. It happens everytime I drive it and only while driving.
There is one more issue: 8th cyllinder very often misfires. I checked/replaced all the easy parts (spark plugs, coil, cables, injector etc).
This car has only 80000 miles but its performance is pretty poor.
have the same problem?
