Dropped a valve, broke spring :(

Well, dropped the #6 intake valve a while back. The valve spring broke while just cruising down the road one day. (2003 1500)

I heard there was ONCE a recall about valve springs. I wish I could make those aholes pay for this engine!

A few 03/04 had valve spring failures. Often at low rpm. What I find odd is it is often #6 that fails.

Very odd! It was at low rpm. And the valve was kept floating until truck died.
And then when went to try to start it is when valve dropped fully into chamber and popped the block.

For me, it was the #6 exhaust, also at low rpm (idling actually - the truck just quit running). I was lucky - the only damage was the spring.
