Ram Driver: nope, surprisingly enough the State didn't give me anything, including info about the infamous plenum replacement. Only thing I got was the windshield sticker for recent oil changes that show me it's only had 2,000 miles put on it in the last few years. The wires look newer so they might be OK, but the coil appears to be OEM and a little rusty. I actually went through 2 sets of plugs already, the first set were the recommended copper plugs (autolite 5224?) and after reading here I switched to the cooler ones. Last plug near the brake booster was a bear to get out, they never changed it I'm guessing. Plugs I pulled out were the factory label Champions that all had a gap of around .85" from age I guess?
A few more addons:
It idles a little rough for my taste, although 700 RPM is the correct speed I believe.
I bought it with the P0132 and P0138 codes set (both o2 sensors), after clearing only the 138 came back so I pulled the rear o2 sensor which appeared to be OEM and the probe was bent, so I replaced it with a Bosch from autozone. Didn't see until after installing it that I shouldn't have bought that brand, I assume they'll exchange but I will wait to see if the 138 code comes back.
The ticking sound could be normal for all I know, as you can hear in the video there's an exhaust leak somewhere and the tick might not be audible if it was piped right.
With 169k I'm ruling the plenum out as being a problem since it had full oil at purchase and I changed it immediately and it's still full. Haven't done the magnet or mirror tests just yet.
