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?

Never fails, it's always when you need the truck,not when its sitting in the driveway for 3 days.

2009 MY 5.7 VVT only. its in dodge service info that us employees have access to. i check for new TSB's, RRT's, and recalls regularly for the 09s
Can you add all the TSB's, RRT's and Recall info you have access to for the 09's to the TSB/RRT thread fro reference by all owners on here?

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.
