From the VCA board. v's are vipers. g's are trucks. x designates sold. Someone has pointed out that they are part of the repair list but not on this list. Still wise to check with your dealer.
Or, this guy has offered to check VINs. [email protected] Send him your last 8 digits and ~milage.

No, but if you see it, you need some work done. I can't be sure this is a 100% complete list. Best to E-mail the guy listed above if you have any doubts.

FYI, I'm not on this list but have been notified by my dealer.

I'm not on the list, but my Viper Tech already told me I qualified due to the manufacturing date.

It's rather interesting how enthusiast boards know about everything even before some of the DC executives. My Viper tech friend had literaly been handed over the letter from DC stating the affected vehicles as I began to question him about the re-call. He had no VIN list, only manufacturing dates affected.

I love the power of the Internet! :D

Right on. I called the Northwest Dodge tech, he made a few phone calls, and then got faxed a list of VIN's from their dealership.

VIN's

Sorry to have provided all with an incomplete list. This is the exact list I was given by my dealership when I made inquiry about my car. Because my build date was 17 Sep and my VIN was not on the list I bugged the h*ll out of D/C unitl I got a call back from one of the PVO engineers this morning. I was told the dates 15Sep-1Jan were only a loose reference for chassis. The important info is when your engine was built. To my surprise a chassis moving down the line on any given day can receive a motor built before or after the chassis starts moving down the line. The engineer said they look at the build date of your motor before a Service Action notice is sent out. Hence the reason a general recall has not been issued. D/C can identify each specific motor and notify that specific owner.

Don't be sorry Tacdoc. Thanks for giving us a lot more information than Dodge. So did it turn out you were in the clear or not?

The final word I had from D/C today was I am in the clear. I am still a little more than wigged about my "crank" sensor problem last month, especially after reading the actual recall document and seeing where it talks about replacing a damaged Cam sensor. My tech, who is also a good friend, told me that my bad sensor was located in the rear of the block, and I guess the cam sensor is in front. The repair process looks pretty hairy. I cant imagine it all being done in the 3.3 hours allotted.

3.3 hours? My tech said I should plan on leaving it over night. Maybe he has a lot of work going on. They have to remove the balancer and everything else on the front of the motor.

Some comments from a Viper tech doing the repairs.

I have two to do also. I just got the D-mail this morning. 3.3 for the Viper and 5.? for the truck...I hope I don't make to much on any of these...where do they come up with these times.
Later,
Joe
I don't know where the hell they get these times. It makes it real hard to make a living doing this with the time allowances they give us anymore. FYI, the oil pan will not come out of the Ram without pulling the engine. The cross brace between the lower control arms (the one with 2 long bolts on either side) is welded on the SRT Rams. You can drop the pan and reach in and take the the pickup tube loose (4 nuts and don't drop 'em!) and then pull the cover. It takes damn near an hour to get the fan/radiator assembly out. Lucky for me, the majority of the trucks we have sold went out of state. The parts are on major backorder as of today. Good luck,

Well the upside is, that DC is on it, and pretty quick. Unlike our Ls with the blowing sparkplugs out of the heads. Early 5.4 heads are flawed in design (not enough spakplug threads) They were redesigned for late 02. But ford won't warrenty the Ls if you've changed anything, even the air filter or muffler. But don't question any of the vans, expiditions, standard p.u., etc. no matter what they've done. SO count you Blessings. :)
