Oil leak from the oil filter


You can't just replace the gasket the gasket comes with a new oil filter you are better off to change the filter and be done with it.

Dodge ram running rough already changed plugs, cioils and injectors


It probably uses oil as well... The intake manifolds blow out a gasket on their underside all the time. This allows a vacuum leak and it sucks oil in as well... Intake has to come off to fix it.

2001 ram 1500 2wd 5.2l truck hesitaion on startup and pinging


it sounds like the intake manifold plenum pan gasket is leaking..open throttle plates and look for engine oil pooling inside intake manifold..if there is,you have to remove intake manifold..there is a pan/cover bolted to bottom of intake..gasket will look like it's out of place..you need to replace this gasket and bolts..you can get these from your local dodge dealer..you will also need new manifold gaskets..this is causing your oil consumption and spark knock issues..there is also a software update for the engine controller for spark knock..let me know what you find

My 99 Dodge Ram 1500 I just purchased high oil consumption


It could be burning and you don't notice. Remove air filter box assembly from top of intake manifold. Hold throttle wide open (engine off) and look through throttle body (flashlight may be required) and see if oil is puddled up inside manifold. If so then the intake manifold will need to be removed so the lower pan gasket can be replaced.

2001 dodge 2500 4x4 high oil consumption


These are know for having a leaking gasket on the bottom of the intake that will cause oil consumption. To test for this take the pcv valve out of the passenger side valve cover and the crankcase filter out of the driver side. With the engine running put your thumbs over the holes in both valve covers. It should build pressure. If you feel it pulling a vacuum, the gasket is leaking. You have to remove the intake and flip it over on a bench to change the pan gasket on the bottom.

Smoking Ram


On the intake there is a pan the gasket usually hardens and pieces break off allowing oil from block to be sucked into intake (I am assuming you have performed compression check on all cylinders and thier OK) You have to pull the intake to get to this pan.
