Except for the camshaft phaser and intake manifold.

Your truck is in a limp mode right now. You can drive it but it wont have much power off the line. Take it in ASAP and have it fixed. I drove mine about 500 miles before I took it in. How did you read the code?

My truck only had 400 miles on it when the check engine light came on the first time. When I took it to the dealer the engine light had reset itself and was told that I should be fine now and the part was ordered. A couple of days later it came on again, but after several start/stop ignition cycles it would go out. I figured out that whenever I get on the gas it would come on.

A month later I called to see if the part had shown up and I was told that they had no fix for the problem - Dodge did finally replace the valve, four months later, but now my truck doesn't make the booming intake sound it used to at 4000 rpm.
