2007 Dodge ram 1500 5.7 engine

10

Asked by Mar 17, 2012 at 01:52 PM about the 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got this truck and brought it to my mechanic for a once over.  When he entered the info into the computer he told me that there were two different engine classifications for the 07 5.7.  Was there a problem with the engines on the 07 model that required a change?  Is one better than the other?  Or is this a meaningless distinction that I shouldn't worry about?
thanks

i figured it started in 07.5 only because my mother has a durango with the hemi, production date was first half of 07 and she doesnt have MDS
