Why would a 2008 Grabd Caravan 4.0L 50,000 miles odometer require a Rocker Arm Assembly replacement when the oil was replaced every 3,000 miles?.

Asked by Jul 29, 2015 at 10:43 PM about the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The ticking noise I am being told is because of the wear on the lifters? Really? 50,000
miles? There must have been some cheap materials used to build this engine. this is
crazy.

You must ask your dealer and bring your maintenance records, they have engine info and bulletins about their problems. they can contact the engine plant. you must ask what they will do after 7 years at that mileage,what other instance is there of this concern? is there a parts update.?

If it is about time for a oil change leave out one quart of oil and add a bottle of Lucas Engine Oil Stabilizer or if just had done remove one quart then add the ticking will go away I promise. I can make this promise because I have seen and heard this product work. My friends vehicle was ticking like a sewing machine changed his oil left out one quart added the Lucas and with in 30 - 45 minutes of idling the tick was gone.
