Have you checked the air filter? could have picked up some trash and clogged the air intake.

    since it is under warranty i would take back to dealer. the service filter message comes on when it sees excessive vacuum on air intake side might have some programming updates

13 mpg highway. 2003 2500 4x4 5.7 litre 94000 miles on it. is there some things i can do to help milage?

Unfortunatly there is not much room for improvement on these trucks. A tonnou cover helps, proper tire inflation helps as well. You can get a hi flow air filter like the K&N these help some. You can get a little better milage with the higher Octane gasolines but you have to pay more for the gas which is kind of a wash on this. 12-13MPH is about what I get regularly on my 06 2500 6.0ltr, 14-15 if the wind is pushing and I keep out of the gas. What gears are you using in the rear end. A gear change to 3.73 will improve milage but less power and the gear change is an expensive repair.

Wide tires make less gas millage, get narrow wheels, let the car accomplish speed slowly from 0 to 30, look at air filter,if shortly replaced, oxygen censor, 15 miles is normal 16 miles per gallon is good for a V8

Do you think asking 12,000 dollars for a truck is too much??

Too much milage, In my opinion. You will start experiencing problems eventually.You can but a newer model truck for that amount of money. Of course you can do what you want. But Dodge is known to have constant problems with the transmission. I have experienced this with people that I know.Your vote would be appreiciated. If this helps.
