Just curious how many miles (kilometers up here) that people are getting on stock 5.7 ?? My 06 Magnum RT AWD is at 223,000km (138,500miles) . . . and all seems totally fine, oil pressure 20lb @ idle and pops right up to 50lb over 1000rpm, no strange noises, ticks, etc., uses about 1/2 litre of oil between changes (every 5000km - 3000miles). I have never changed valve cover gaskets, cause never had the valve covers off or seen any leaks ! . . . always changed plugs every 50k km (30k miles), replaced thermostat, radiator and power steering pump and camshaft sensor. . . . had the car since new. . . .

I have a 2007 Magnum R/T that I have driven since new. It has 178,000 miles+ with no engine or transmission issues.

Most of the time Mobil 1 with 10,000 mile oil changes.

Lots of road miles until recently.

2003 1500 Not really as much as some of you at 155,000. BUT, 120,000 was pulling my 24 foot enclosed trailer with a 63 Plymouth in it. As far as the whole truck goes, other that tires shocks and brakes, the ONLY things I've replaced was front and rear wheel bearings. Oh, and one rear tail lamp. That is it.


Edit whoops, almost forgot, a couple of idler pullies on the belt drive.

Not the highest by any means, but my 06 Magnum is at 145k. It's got an exhaust leak under acceleration, but other than that it's great!

I live in Manitoba, 05 Magnum RT, 270,000 kms on it. Gets driven every day, 365 days a year. Only thing I've replaced outside of normal maintenance is the crank sensor, a t-stat, oil pressure sensor, and A/C compressor. Runs pretty good but you can tell it's getting abit tired, will likely replace the timing chain this spring.

I think with our climate, you'd have to multiply your mileage by 1.5-2X to compare it to fair weather cars mechanically. 0 to -40 F is a real killer on vehicles

2012 Ram 1500 4x4 has 224,500 miles on it and is driven every day. I still pull a car trailer with it. It has had a lifter tick for 120,000 miles now. No other issues beyond that. General maintenance only, by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. I have had it since new, almost 8 years now.

THis truck is at 354,000 miles.
Original serpentine belt and tensioner, starter, alternator, water pump, power steering pump and A/C compressor.
Plug changes every 40,000, trans service every 50,000.
I did replace the EGR valve and thermostat. I replaced the A/C condenser fan twice. I'm on my second radiator.

What do you do when you have the transmission serviced? Flush and oil and filter change?
Thanks!

I do it myself. There are 2 filters inside the trans. Both get replaced along with what drains from the pan.
I have had to replace the transmission control module twice. That requires removal of the valve body!

When I sold my '03 Ram 2500 it had a little over 258,000 miles on it. As far as I know it had never been apart.

It had most of the usual issues (exhaust manifold leaks, the buyer told me he found oil pan rot) but it kept chugging along.

As a fellow owner of an '06 Magnum R/T AWD & a '70 road runner, I'll just say you have excellent taste in cars! 130,200miles on the wagon.
