No oil leak here that I can spot and no marks on the drive way, anyone else use/burn engine oil though? Since new I need to add roughly 1/2 a quart every 2k. I check it at every fill up and it is a gradual decrease.
I’m at roughly 15000 miles currently and have noticed this since new. Currently running pennzoil platinum euro since roughly 8000 miles.
I’m wondering if this is considered normal consumption or if I should be concerned for issues down the road.

I wonder if fca gets the engine back so it can be examined, or maybe they dont careThis week on a Jeep forum I'm a member of, a guy had the EXACT same leak that I had and it presented itself the same: oil slowly dripping from the components below the engine. Wetness visible on various parts under the engine.
His dealer ended up replacing the entire engine, rather than digging into it and finding the actual source of the leak. It's likely that a new timing cover would have solved his issue as well.
Some of these repair shops just blow my mind.
In the same boat have a case open but can seem to talk with anybody about this problem.So just to update on my particular issue.. Next week will be week 3 without my truck. The dealership has an EcoDiesel mechanic but he's already working on another one. So they have my parts but can't start on it until next week. Then, 2-3 days of labor. It's ridiculous.
If this was out of warranty, I'd be looking at thousands of dollars to repair. This truck has already let me down. Should have kept my Gladiator. It was rock solid.
Next week I'm going to request some assistance from FCA since I'm making big monthly payments on something I can't even drive.
Sometimes it's difficult to find the right resources to help you. This forum is an anomaly but on most 5th Gen Ram forums you can get direct help from FCA via "RamCares". In my case they immediately assigned a case manager to me and my manager called me every couple of days to check in. They also called the dealership to check in and offer help.In the same boat have a case open but can seem to talk with anybody about this problem.
At first I assumed they just had a bad batch of timing covers during early production, because my tech noticed a 'machining mark' on mine and some other guys with the same issue reported the same finding. However, I've now seen this issue on 2021 model Jeeps with this powertrain as well, and those were manufactured a full YEAR after my truck was. So apparently there is indeed a quality control issue during either manufacturing or during assembly.Why is it happening to some and not others?
is it a quality control issue during assembly?
Unfortunately my 2020 ram rebel eco has also just marked its territory on my driveway. Dealer has had it since April 22 with no end in site. Waiting on a gasket they claim that's on backorder. This $74,000 gem only has 17,000 miles. I saw your youtube video and the dealer has confirmed same issue relating to timing cover etc. I have a claim open with FCA with a "higher up" and i will do my best to have them make this right. Be it an extended warranty, Cash and Keep, Buy back etc. Have you had any luck with such claims on your vehicle? My biggest concern is this being a reoccurring issue beyond my factory warranty. Has your truck had any related oil leaks post repairs?5400 miles and the bottom of the compressor is wet as well as the front of the block. It's dripping down to the oil pan and then onto my driveway. The front being wet leads me to believe the Fumoto valve is not to blame.
