Engine Performance problem
2002 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
Hi, I am experiencing major towing issues with my truck. Seems to run ok not towing an gets about 14.5 mpg on the highway at 75 mph. When towing my camper around 7000 lbs, it really struggles to get it done. MPG drops to 6 on the highway and the engine just doesn't want to do it. I had a tune up done and things didn't improve. The computer at my mechanic shows 1 cylynder misfiring only when idiling and not in gear. Won't to it in gear. My mechanics has determined the value is not performing under load and we should do a complete value job to improve performance and mpg. What do you think? Thanks in advance for your help at correcting this issue!
have the same problem?
