E3 Plugs are the worst plugs that you can put in Dodge Rams as you just found out. Wish I would have seen this post a while back as I could have fixed you up without having to go through all this.

I went through this also with Bosch junk quad platinum crap plugs from hell. Things would ping, misfire central. Champions are also junk by the way- it may work but, FYI- they are not that good. Autolites- ah, so so. But, you can't go wrong with NGKs. Great plugs that last.

E3s been there done that, ditto they are junk. With E3s my truck never had so many misfires. Put back my regular plugs back in and runs great.

I've never had a problem with the bosch +2 platinum's that I used to run, but champion plugs both the copper and the platinum dont last long and fouled really easy.

So I been having random misfires on different cylinders so I replaced the cap,rotor,wires and plugs with NKG brand. Took for test drive at high rpms and Iím still having random misfire on cylinder 3,5,6. What next? Iím at a loss
