2000 DTS 194,000 miles, 2000 DHS 203,000 miles
For the second time in 2 months, I've had to put a cam and lifters in another dodge truck with a Hemi. Each truck had the needle bearings fall out of a roller lifter, thus destroying the cam lobe under it. The brilliant design of this Hemi has the lifters under the heads. So head removal is necessary to change the lifters. These trucks are so big it absolutely tears my old body up working on the engine. The backs of my thighs are black and blue and several bruises on both calves. Sorry I know it's not Cadillac related but I needed to rant. Give me a caddy engine over a Hemi any day!!!
