Truck went from driving great to Low Oil Pressure on dash, went thru screen and found 17psi oil, let up throttle to find safe area to pull over off 4 lane, by time I got on shoulder engine quit and I coasted to stop, got out and checked and oil is full, so tow to dealer.
Sucks as it was a great driving truck

What year is your truck?

Since you posted on the 3rd Generation (2020 or newer) section, that would make it very unusual. If it is a 2019 or older (second generation) model, then the issue is way more common.

@Ridge69, you said that you have a 2020 truck. How many miles are on the truck? What engine oil have you been using? You should be covered by the 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. The 3rd gen engines are pretty solid engines, so this is a rare failure, assuming it's an actual failure and not something else.

Bummer. I have a 2020 that has had some problems. Would be very interested to hear what the issue is with yours. I was given a loaner for both my visits to the dealer. Ram Cares helped a little when the dealer was dragging their feet. Good luck, and on the bright side, you may have a new motor in your future.............

Sucks to be maybe the first one losing the new motor.

Now in 2020 there was a brief production of a "Classic" model. I do believe that used the older motor until they ran out of them. Also thinking some or most were single cab models. Anyway,, this is a picture of a 2020 - Generation 3 motor. Your engine should look like the.
