I have some questions about this MDS crap

I guess my first question is why is Dodge having such a hard time with that issue?

If I buy a truck that has that, what exactly do I have to do to eliminate it? I know you have to turn it off in the computer but do you have to plug it off in the heads too?

I'm looking at a 2012 3/4 ton that's in great shape and a damn good price but I'm just concerned about the MDS because the dealer is having a new engine out in it right now because of that

Can I disable it with just a tuner? People on one of the mopar forums on fb are acting like I'm totally insane. That it's not an issue. Hardly anyone has heard of it...lol...am I insane for worrying about it???

If it’s a 2500 don’t believe it has it. If it does then a tuner will simply turn it off issue free. The issue with the newer trucks is the lifters eating the cam lobes

So have they come up with a fix for the issue? Or do they just replace the parts and the problem comes back down the road?
