    I've got an 03 dodge 3500 with 114,000 miles on it. I'm hearing pinging in the motor and a little bit of a loss of power. Called dodge and they said that the valves needed to be adjust, they called it "valve lash clearance". Any of you guys with 03 or newer Rams experience the pinging and a little loss of power. It's not a big loss by any means but me driving it everyday I can notice.
