okay this is an DOHC engine...easy for one of the teeth come slippin over one tooth with a stretched and worn out chain~ https://www.google.com/#q=2009+Dodge+Ram+Pickup+1500+timing+chain +kit&tbm=shop

I suspect the timing of the engine is off~ examine the timing marks...examine the timing chain tensioner examine the wear shoes...examine the stretch in the chain (if you can)~
