How to tell if your plenum pan gasket is blown
This is an amateur demonstration of the Chrysler-recommended diagnostic test to see whether the Dodge Ram/Durango/Grand Cherokee plenum pan gasket has failed, as described in TSB 09-05-00. Issues of test sensitivity and specificity are raised. A common flaw seen in the Dodge Ram Magnum V8 engine (1994- approx 2003) is a leaking plenum pan gasket. The gasket is said to be prone to failure because the pan is made of steel, and the intake manifold is aluminum. With the different coefficients of expansion between these two metals, and the marked thermal change this area is subjected to, gasket failure is quite common, leading to an internal vacuum leak and oil contamination of the intake manifold. Failure of this gasket may lead to oil consumption, poor gas mileage, pinging under load, and rough idle. This is a demonstration of amateur effort, published in good faith but with no guarantees as to safety or accuracy. Auto repair is intrinsically dangerous and misadventures are to be anticipated and planned for. Do not try this at home without professional advice! Any misadventure you encounter if you should decide to try and repair your vehicle is your responsibility.

1999 Dodge ram plenum repair
Fixing the plenum pan on my truck... its a common problem on 2nd gen dodge rams. When the gasket blows it lets oil into the intake which gets sucked into the cylinders... most trucks mine included were just re programed to run diffrent instead of dodge fixing the plenum. After replacing my plenum pan and intake gaskets, i have more power and it hasnt used any oil or coolant in the past week.
